On Hire & Off Hire Bunker Survey

A bunker survey is usually carried out in conjunction with the On Hire or Off Hire Condition Survey.

The purpose of the survey is to establish the quantities of fuel and lubrication oils onboard the vessel. This is of vital importance when chartering a vessel as it provides documented proof of the true condition of the vessel’s fuel supplies at a given point in time and prevents later claims and disputes.

In this way the Bunker Survey provides a valuable means of protecting your investment and avoiding disputes.
