"The New Zealand Ship Registration Act 1992"

Paul Myburgh, 1993

In a discussion of the New Zealand Ship Registration Act 1992, the author draws attention to section 70, in terms of which “instruments creating securities or charges” in respect of foreign-registered ships, if duly registered in accordance with the law of the flag, will have the same effect as a ship mortgage registered under the Act. The author is critical of the broad range of foreign security interests, each of which may be of a different nature according to the lex causae, being grouped together within the category of a (domestic) ship mortgage.
