Bareboat rental has become increasingly common since the mid-1990s, and especially since the early 2000s. There is a growing demand for a yacht holiday and many experienced and semi-experienced “yachties” feel that it is now easier and cheaper to rent a Bareboat instead of owning your own yacht. While both the international leisure travel industry (especially outdoor activities) and the boat industry have boomed over the past decade, the bareboat charter industry, which encompasses both aspirations, has also experienced a boom. A bareboat charter is indeed a financing agreement. It is generally considered a leasing contract, including a financial lease, for accounting purposes, both under International Accounting Standards (IFRS 16) and U.S. accounting standards.  The term bareboat charter refers to an agreement to rent a boat or vessel without a crew and the persons who rent the boat to the owner are responsible for designating the crew and making other arrangements. In this case, the charter shall take charge of the vessel for a specified period, with a minimum of restrictions for a specified sum. BIMCO has published a new edition of BARECON, the standard contract in the bareboat charter industry. In the United States, there is an additional legal distinction with respect to Bareboat versus For Hire or “Skippered” Charter. If people group their finances on Bareboat, so that the qualified captain can ski for the group, while the captain is not supposed to be a paid skipper, he now assumes the legal responsibilities of one. This can have significant consequences in the event of negative incidents at sea. There are legal differences between a bareboat charter and other types of charter agreements, usually referred to as time or travel charterers.
In the case of a voyage or time charter, the charterer charters the ship (or part of it) for a specified voyage or for a specified period. In these charters, the charterer may drive where the ship will go, but the owner of the ship retains possession of the ship through the occupation of the master and crew. On the other hand, in the case of a boat charter or shipwreck, the owner hands over possession of the ship to the charterer and the charterer hires his own captain and crew. The Bare Boat charterer is sometimes called the “disponent owner”. Responsibility for the owner`s possession of the vessel is the defining feature of a hull or sinking charter. As part of a traditional part of freight rental chartering, the right to suspend the service in the event of non-payment of rent provides landlords with a powerful commercial tool to use late rents. However, based on industry feedback, it is not practical to apply the same sanction under BARGEHIRE.. . .
