Since Kalimbassieris Maritime was established in the late 70's we have acted as average agents for the Norwegian Marine insurance market. As a result we have considerable experience in casualties and complex repair work. Our firm is known for its hands on approach to marine claims, being involved in the early stages of marine casualties. With technical staff with shipyard experience we are able to guide underwriters from the very first assessment of damage and up to the final negotiation of repair bills.

Our involvement includes:
  • Initial assessment of damage
  • Supervision of temporary repairs
  • Guidance in drafting repair specification
  • Assessing capability and availability of suitable shipyards
  • Organising tendering process and evaluating tenders
  • Supervising repairs
  • Assisting with settlement negotiation of repair invoices

Over the years we have acquired expertise in loss of hire cases and with special knowledge of local shipyards we are able to advise on techniques for shortening repair time.

With offices in Greece, Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey we provide full coverage to underwriters in the East Med and Black Sea region but are also appointed worldwide on such cases.
