Ship on hire / off hire inspections have the purpose of determining the condition of a ship or vessel at the time of delivery or redelivery. The survey is usually followed by a bunker survey to determine the bunker R.O.B.
AB Surveyors™, works with experienced marine surveyors attending any type of ship or vessel, to check all the items requested by our clients in an on hire / off hire inspection.
Depending on our customer requirements we use our own templates, checklists and reports or we follow their documents and instructions.
We carry out ship on hire / off hire surveys on behalf of a wide range of customers.
AB Surveyors™, carries out independent on/off hire condition surveys on behalf of Technical Management Companies, Ship Operators, Ship Owners, Ship Brokers, Charterers, Local Agents, lending and insurance companies, etc.
The ship on hire / off hire condition survey usually lasts one days, depending on the type of vessel and the ship’s cargo / discharge operations.
It is a survey focused in vessel’s cargo spaces, holds, hatch covers, decks, weathertight, cranes, etc. But also can concern documentation, class certificates, engine spaces, performance reports, structural and watertight integrity, system’s installations, operation condition and grade of maintenance.
Along with ship on hire / off hire condition survey, a bunker quantity survey usually is carried out if requested. With bunker survey, the surveyor certificates the amount of Fuel Oil and Marine Diesel Oil on board (R.O.B.) at the time of delivery or re-delivery.
Inspections usually are conducted with vessel alongside but they can be conducted also with vessel navigating, if there is no other chance. AB Surveyors™, adapts to the particular circumstances of our clients and we try to minimize the inspection effects in the operations of the vessel and her crew, avoiding delays.
The ship on hire / off hire inspections report includes detailed particulars of the vessel, specifications, and detailed list of deficiencies and recommendations.
We use high tech tools to ensure that our customer receives a high quality report, reflecting the true condition of the vessel in the most exhaustive way.
