Ports and Marinas

Ports and marinas require rules and regulations to keep them running well. Vessels need to be protected, staff cared for and treated fairly, buildings maintained and byelaws and regulations stuck to. And that’s just the start.

With such a diverse range of challenges it’s essential to stay on top of it all. Our team at Lester Aldridge does just that and has built a knowledge base that allows us to advise on a whole range of issues including:

  • Drafting and implementation of Harbour Revision Orders, General Directions and Harbour bye-laws
  • Planning and shore side property issues
  • Enforcement of harbour bye-laws and Merchant Shipping Regulations
  • Contracts for the sale or purchase of harbour tugs, pilot cutters, patrol vessels
  • Recovery of harbour dues, mooring fees and payment for other services rendered by the harbour authority
  • Disposal of abandoned vessels
  • Claims for personal injuries sustained on harbour premises of by harbour employees
  • Health and safety issues
  • Employment contracts and disputes
  • Insurance claims
  • Repair and refit contracts
  • Towage contracts and salvage claims
  • Berthing and boat storage contracts

We can offer expert advice, talk through any issues that might be concerning you or answer any question you might have regarding any of the above and more.
