A charterer can also be a cargo-free party that charters a ship by the owner for a certain period of time and then exchanges the vessel with a profit higher than the rental price, or even makes a profit in a rising market by re-leasing the vessel to other charterers. Claims arising, where appropriate, from the chartering of a ship must be addressed in writing to the lessor no later than 14 days after the end of the charter. The owner only acknowledges complaints filed in writing during the delivery of the vessel and signed by the charterer and the owner. Claims for damages are limited to the maximum amount of the contract charter price. All other claims are excluded. .
