COVID-19. How does it affect charter contracts?

The charterer has the obligation in the charter contracts to designate a port that is safe for both the ship and the crew; thay is to say, that it does not represent any danger to them.

The determination of whether a port is safe is given case by case, taking into account multiple factors such as: port conditions, implemented security measures, among others. If a port turns out to be unsafe, the charterer will most likely be liable to the shipowner.
