What inspections of a vessel will time charterers sometimes make?

Before taking a vessel on charter, prospective charterers – especially an oil company and charterers hiring older tonnage – may require a thorough condition survey to be made. Having hired a vessel, in most cases, an on-hire or delivery survey will be required. In some cases, however, there is no survey of any kind.
