Chapter 17: Special rules for fishing vessels and small freighters, etc.

  • General

    Chapter 17 coordinates the rules relating to insurance of fishing vessels and small freighters, and contains conditions for hull insurance (Sections 2 and 3), catch and equipment insurance (Sections 4 and 5) and shipowners' liability insurance (Section 6) and loss-of-hire insurance for fishing vessels (Section 7). This Section is not applicable unless it has been explicitly agreed that the insurance is also to cover loss of hire.

    A number of rules which are common to these insurances are singled out in Section 1. Furthermore, all the insurances under this Chapter are subject to the rules in part I of the Plan (Chapters 1 to 9).
