The purpose of this article is to establish the concept of the bareboat charter registry and draw attention to a few significant international conventions that govern certain aspects of the bareboat charter registry. Also, the purpose is to present models which various countries apply to regulate the registration of vessels during the bareboat charter and analyse the contents of the provisions of the bareboat charter that regulate the relations between the contracting parties who wish to have the vessel registered in the bareboat charter registry. BIMCO’s Standard Bareboat Charter, also known under the code name BARECON 2001, will be used to lay out the provisions applicable to vessels registered in the bareboat charter registry.
