Updated Towage guidance note


This note is designed for shipowners and their brokers to outline the P&I coverage of their ships during towage to a repair yard. Usually, such towage follows a casualty or event giving rise to a Hull & Machinery claim. Owners need to ensure that they have considered the P&I risks and understand the process required to maintain P&I coverage.

The note outlines the need for Club approval of contract terms, as well as the importance of Warranty Surveys.

This service note is not a substitute for communicating with the UK P&I Club, but will hopefully assist in planning for any towage following a casualty.
