Chartering is a puzzling nevertheless exciting

task. People involved in chartering are expected

to have acquired a spherical knowledge in
almost any maritime aspect. Owners,
Charterers, Brokers, Forwarding Agents,
Traders, Exporters, Importers, Masters, Ship’s
Officers, Lawyers, Arbitrators, Ship agents and
many others, they all share the need for a
global knowledge of the procedures which take
place when chartering a ship and the
obligations which a chartering deal imposes. On
the other hand, those involved with chartering
need to be aware of the specific ‘body of laws
or principles’ which each of the above mentioned professionals
represent. But is it feasible for one person to gather all this knowledge?
Frankly speaking it is quite impossible.Nevertheless, one should be
‘initiated’ at least to such an extend as to be allowed to comprehend and
appreciate different ‘points of view’. The Chartering Practice Handbook
does not claim to give an answer to all questions.It should be considered
as a small contribution to both the generic and the specific knowledge
required in chartering procedures. Its target is to present a pragmatic
perspective of the main ‘chartering practice’ aspects and eventually
‘initiate’ the reader in its procedures.

Written by Thomas J. Pagonis in simple english, the “Chartering Practice Handbook” is a tool
for both the students of shipping schools and maritime professionals. Everything that
concerns the perspective of “practice” in ships’ chartering is mentioned and explained in this
book.Recommended by H.S.A. (the Hellenic Shipbrokers Association) for its seminars and for
SGC (the Shipbroking Gnosis Certificate).
