Unmanned Ships and the Law considers the law relating to the legal aspects of unmanned ships. This book examines both the legal aspects and technological peculiarities of unmanned ships, as well as contemplating terminological and linguistic questions, to find out whether they can be compatible with the current legal regime applicable to ships in general, while considering alternatives to enable their successful use in the near future.
Written by Prof. h.c. Dr. iur Bülent Sözer, Director of the Maritime Law Research Centre at Pîrî Reis University, İstanbul. He is Visiting Fellow at the Institute of International Shipping and Trade Law, Swansea University and a member of the International Working Group on “Marine Autonomous Surface Ships” for CMI (Comité Maritime International).
The seventh edition of Ship Sale and Purchase contains a detailed clause-by-clause analysis of SHIPSALE 22, the new standard form Memorandum of Agreement for ship sales and purchases published by BIMCO in 2022. This clause-by-clause analysis is supplemented by commentary on the corresponding provisions of the other leading standard forms used in the global shipping markets - SALEFORM 2012 (the latest version of the longstanding standard form produced by the Norwegian Shipbrokers' Association), SINGAPORE SHIP SALE FORM 2011 and NIPPONSALE 1999 - and the main differences between these forms and SHIPSALE 22.
This edition of Ship Sale and Purchase also contains a comprehensive description of the many ways in which standard form agreements may be modified, through amendments to the printed terms and the use of additional clauses, to suit the particular requirements of the parties to individual transactions. In addition, it analyses relevant decisions of the English courts and arbitration tribunals and explains the implications of these decisions for ship sale and purchase transactions.
