This booklet includes a sample copy of the SHIPMAN 2009 contract and the related explanatory notes. The explanatory notes provide some background information on the clauses of the BIMCO contract.
The fundamental principles that SHIPMAN established when it was first issued in 1988, and which have largely become the ‘law’ of ship management, are preserved and expanded upon in this new edition. SHIPMAN 2009 can be used as a single point of reference regarding most ship management services, including technical and crew management.
SHIPMAN 2009 – Standard Ship Management Agreement
BIMCO is the world’s largest direct-membership organisation for shipowners, charterers, shipbrokers and agents. In total, around 60% of the world’s merchant fleet is a BIMCO member, measured by tonnage (weight of the unloaded ships).
The organisation has NGO status and is based in Copenhagen, Denmark, with offices in Athens, Singapore and Shanghai.
With around 1,900 member companies across 120 countries, from the largest shipowners in the world to small local port agents and law firms, BIMCO represents a wide range of maritime companies and organisations.
BIMCO’s goal is to secure a level playing field for the global shipping industry. BIMCO therefore works to promote and secure global standards and regulations for the maritime sector. The organisation’s century long effort into creating standard contracts and clauses is an expression of that aim.
