Following changes to MARPOL regulations, the two ships potentially became non-compliant due to a small area of single-hull. The issue arose whether the ships, which had been fully described in the charter, were now non-contractual. The Court of Appeal held that the owners had a continuing obligation to ensure the ships complied with all legal and regulatory matters affecting the ships’ ability to perform the services required of them.
