What types of claim may be brought in the Admiralty Court by claimants with maritime claims?

Either a claim in personam, i. e. “against the person” (which may be a corporate body or an individual), or a claim in rem, i. e. “against the matter” (which is usually a named ship). Many claimants prefer to make a claim in rem against a ship, especially where the ship’s owner is difficult to identify.
