We have received reports that the "SEA BAY", a 2009 built product tanker flying the Hong Kong flag, grounded and refloated on the 9th February. Although the grounding was brief, the shipowners signed a LOF salvage contract with Multraship. The ship was rapidly refloated with tug assistance.

It is expected that there will be claims for salvage. Claims for GA are also possible.

It is carrying a cargo loaded in the UK and was bound for Antwerp and other European ports.

If you would like assistance in dealing with any potential claims for salvage, GA and recovery of your losses, please do contact us.

Our in-house master mariners are part of our service and their assistance, together with our extensive track record in marine matters (over 1,000 years of collective experience) are key resources in dealing with cases such as these.
