Introduction to Hull Claims

The nature of ships and the trades they ply gives rise to a wide variety of risks and exposes both the ship itself and those that run them to a multitude of different types of losses. Marine hull insurance, possibly the oldest type of insurance, steps in to combat the effect of these losses, and is a means by which shipowners can manage their risk. This publication gives an initial introduction to marine hull claims, and the role that average adjusters play.

An adjusters’ note on the supreme court decision in “The Longchamp” 

This case involved a chemical tanker that was seized on 29 January 2009 by Somali pirates. A ransom demand of US$6 million was made by the pirates. After negotiation, a final ransom of US$1.85 million was agreed on 22 March 2009 and the vessel was released.

An adjusters’ note on substituted expenses and ransom payments – “The Longchamp”

The Court of Appeal has reversed the 2014 High Court judgement that crew wages and fuel consumed during lengthy ransom negotiations with Somali pirates could be allowed as general average under Rule F of the York Antwerp Rules. This article provides insight into both the High Court and Court of Appeal decisions, and clarifies the test for establishing an allowance under Rule F.
