Sale And Purchase Agreement Vessel
The MOA sets out a number of procedures necessary for the final conclusion of the transaction. Certain documents are required, including the closing event, the minutes of the meeting of the directors and shareholders of the seller, a certificate of good reputation, a power of attorney, the contract of sale, the class certificate, any consents or licenses required by the government authority, an attestation from the Registrar of the Ship Registry authorizing the sale. If the buyer used a bank loan for the purchase, the bank`s mortgage is also registered on the ship. In addition, a new insurance policy will be issued in the name of the buyer and the buyer will also inform the classification society of the date and time of purchase.
