RightShip may require a physical inspection of a vessel by experienced inspectors before it will consider recommending the vessel to our customers. The inspection result informs the vetting and selection process of our customers.Read More
A RightShip inspection provides a validation of a vessel’s condition and the application of its management system. The observations of Inspectors feed back into the vetting process, providing critical control to improve safety and inform the vetting practices of RightShip customers.Read More
A vessel inspection will be required for:
Please note that an inspection has a 12 month validity – so from 14 years of age a vessel inspection is required every 12 months.
A vessel inspection may also be required when:
At customer request (normally associated with term charters), a RightShip dry inspection is undertaken to obtain first-hand validation of a vessel’s condition and operational capability, and complements the scope of Port State Control, International Safety Management and Class assessments.
As of January 2018, all RightShip dry inspections now include a voluntary Health & Wellness Assessment, which considers the living and working standards of the crew and the influence this can have on wellbeing, safety and performance at work.
The RightShip global team of inspectors are DNV GL certified and trained to look at the overall safe working condition of a vessel and whether it adheres to industry best practices.
The list of deficiencies and recommendations provided to an owner at the conclusion of the inspection is not a definitive list on all matters requiring attention, but provides a list of examples that present an overall impression about the management of the vessel.
Deficiencies that are considered to be of a serious nature and a safety or environmental risk are reported to the relevant classification society or flag by the ship owner for review. When class or flag are satisfied with the action taken by the ship owner to close the deficiency, evidence will be provided to RightShip.
An inspection usually takes approximately two working days (1 – 1.5 days for Handy size vessels) and a dry vessel inspection will cost approximately US$7,500 (US$6,500+/- for Handy vessels). The benefit of a RightShip inspection accrues across all customers and is typically undertaken at the discharge port to minimise disruption to the vessel.

From the 01 January 2018, a RightShip dry inspection will include a voluntary health and wellness assessment.Read More
Supporting the Sustainable Shipping Initiative (SSI) social responsibility agenda and based on industry best practise, the Health & Wellness Assessment considers the working and living standards provided to seafarers aboard a vessel, understanding the influence this can have on wellbeing, work performance, safety and employee retention.
This self-completion assessment aims to recognise and reward ship owners & managers who go beyond compliance with the Maritime Labour Convention (2006). It does not yet form part of the RightShip Qi vetting platform, however charterers may choose to use the information gathered from this assessment in their decision making.
Available here, the Health & Wellness questionnaire can be downloaded and completed within 24 hours prior to inspection and e-mailed to RightShip at email@example.com, or handed to the Vetting Inspector at the time of inspection. The ship’s Master is required to complete the assessment, which will then be validated as part of the RightShip inspection procedure.
