Clause 18-98 is verbatim identical with Cl. 19-20 and Cl. 19-21 as they were amended in 2016. The limitations of the liability insurance pursuant to Cl. 19-21 are included in Cl. 18-98 as sub-clauses 5 and 6. Reference is made to the Commentary to Cl. 19-20 and Cl. 19-21.
However, wreck removal liability is not comprised by Cl. 18-98, as opposed to Cl. 19-20, but covered under Cl. 18-96, cf. Cl. 18-98, sub-clause 5, letter (c).
The same goes for liability towards third parties for collision and striking, which is covered by Cl. 18-97. The “sister ship” collision and striking cover pursuant to Cl. 18-98, sub-clause 2, is maintained under the general liability cover in Cl. 18-98, cf. Cl. 19-20, sub-clause 2, and the Commentary thereto.
