Bareboat charter-in registration is permitted from all flags. However, the ship must comply with Danish technical requirements, for example as regards asbestos.
Bareboat charter-out registration, on the other hand, is only permitted to countries included on the Danish list of approved bareboat charter-out countries, see below.
Admission of new countries to the bareboat charter-out list may be obtained by (written) application to the Register of Shipping, which decides on the admission of new countries following consultation with the Danish Ships Inspection Council. Countries on the bareboat charter list must comply with various IMO and ILO conventions.
It is a precondition for both bareboat charter-in and bareboat charter-out registration to and from Danish registers that the foreign register consents to the registration of ships on bareboat charter terms.
Bareboat charter-out registration from a Danish register requires the written consents of all holders of recorded and registered interests in the ship.
Ships may be registered as bareboat chartered for an initial period of up to five years. The registration may be extended for one year at a time. The duration of the charter party agreement and the consent of the foreign register must both cover the registration period.
