6.1.1 If the charterer notifies the owner in writing that he or she will resign from the Charter at least two full months before the start of the charter period, the advance is cancelled, but the charterer assumes no responsibility for the balance of payment (and if he and/or the surety or payment of the fuel and the claim have already been paid, he will be refunded and/or refunded). If the owner charters the vessel for the charter period for no less than the charter fee, half of the down payment will be refunded.

The shipowner continues to control the navigation and management of the vessel, but its cargo capacity is exercised by the charterer. 5.5 The charterer may not charter or share a sub-charter or part with control of the vessel without the prior written consent of the owner. 4.6 In the event of major damage to the vessel during the charter period, which entitles the vessel to insurance, or in the event of a failure of equipment or machinery that renders the vessel unfit to sail or unusable, a pro-rata credit is made for the period: in the event that the vessel was not in a state of navigation or unusable, or (if the charterer chooses to do so and the charter permit subsequent), the charter period is extended by the period during which the charterer or a member of his party did not cause or contribute to the injury or breakdown, and also provided that the owner does not provide any further compensation for the resulting damage or duplication or financial or other means. unless damage or breakdowns are caused by the owner`s negligence and lead to death or personal injury.
