On-Hire / Off-Hire Condition Survey

On-Off hire condition surveys are a requirement for the commercial trade of vessels in that vessels are hired from their Owners by Charterers who trade the cargo internationally. The survey of the vessel is undertaken either before the vessel is delivered into a Charter, or re-delivered from a Charter. The reports should include a detailed description of the vessel itself, the structural condition of the cargo spaces and main deck areas surrounding the various cargo compartments and hatches, the ship’s hatch covers, the cargo gear and space. Additionally, you will inspect and report on paint coating and cleanliness, the quantity of bunkers remaining on board, verification of the validity with respect to the vessel’s certification, portable equipment and securing materials, container securing equipment and so on.
