Final sailing

Final sailing. A ship has finally departed from the loading port as soon as it has passed the limits of the port being construed in the commercial sense, being ready in every respect to proceed on the contemplated voyage with no intention of returning.


Consequently limits other than commercial limits, such as legal limits (established by port authorities) and fiscal limits, are not significant to the position of the ship far any particular reason, for example, for the payment of freight. In some charterparties freight may become due within a fixed period of rime after “final sailing”.
