Hull & machinery

Surveys of land-based equipment plus vessels, offshore structures and fixed & floating objects 

Damage to land-based equipment, collisions with ships, quays, jetties and the like typically result in substantial claims – both under hull & machinery policies and in terms of liability claims against operators, ship-owners and P&I Clubs.

In every case, we investigate the cause and extent of the damage, prepare repair specifications and apply for, assess and negotiate bids. We also focus on loss of hire, i.e., the loss of income resulting from damage to hull and machinery. And we assist the marine industry with:

  • Salvage and wreck removals;
  • Collision & grounding investigations;
  • Bunker fuel quality disputes.

Even when not covered under H&M or P&I

Van Ameyde Specialists are the go-to-experts, even when claims are not covered under hull and machinery or P&I. Within the scope of Freight, Demurrage and Defence, our specialists can help you prepare your rebuttal in cases of vessel performance and port and berth and newbuilding disputes, to name but a few. Being experts in all these fields, we conduct court surveys and regularly serve as expert witnesses.
