Yacht & Vessel Transactions and Finance
Our Maritime Group represents owners of commercial vessels, yachts and pleasure boats in transactions and financing matters domestically and internationally. We help clients structure and negotiate commercial and yacht transactions and provide counsel regarding ownership, documentation and registration, chartering, joint ventures, strategic alliances, insurance and financing arrangements. We handle the purchase and sale of both foreign and domestic commercial vessels and yachts while addressing the tax consequences, potential liability and compliance issues that may arise from the transaction.
We negotiate and draft a variety of maritime-related contracts, such as purchase and sale agreements, charter agreements, bills of lading, terminal leases, vessel crew agreements and service contracts. We are experienced with new yacht construction contracts, yacht refurbishing contracts and ship repair and rebuilding.
We also represent borrowers and lenders in the financing of commercial vessel and yacht purchase and construction transactions.
