  • Speed Ballast

  • Vessel Name

  • Vessel Type

Changing a Vessel Name

If a vessel has a name change, the vessel details can be updated to reflect the new name. Any past records will still show the old vessel name. For audit purposes, it is recommended to create a new vessel record and set the old vessel to inactive.

*in order to delete a vessel you must ensure the vessel is not used in any voyages, Estimates or Tc contracts.
