Ship’s expenses depend on critical factors, principally her type, her age ,utilization and machinery. The Author points out that ships of the same types and sizes can differ in OPEX based on the machinery fitted on them.• while ships of the same size and identical machinery can differ on OPEX based on their utilization. He also explain the basic principles that surrounds a good OPEX budget which includes
Competition: The Ship Manager should sell on a “value-for-money proposition”. Fierce competition in the marketplace has a way of driving costs down/south, and this is not good for OPEX.
Realistic: OPEX should be developed based on information on the vessel and experience of the manager in running a similar ship. These two elements must be combined to produce a realistic OPEX.
