A person or company owning a ship or a share in a ship.
- ‘On the one hand, a shipowner could send his ship without convoy and make a good profit but at the great risk of its being captured.’
- ‘The family became influential shipowners and traders.’
- ‘One was a charge over uncalled share capital; the other was a shipowner's lien on subfreights.’
- ‘In a letter received by shipowners, shipmanagers and shipbrokers earlier this week, the sea school said it needed outside sponsorship to help cover the expected cut in funding.’
- ‘One calculation indicates that under the 1992 Protocols the shipowner's average share of the amount payable for pollution damage will rise from 47 per cent to 68 per cent.’
- ‘Are not sections 259 and 261 only concerned with apportionment of liability between ships, or shipowners?’
- ‘Copies were e-mailed on Thursday night to shipowners and ship managers.’
- ‘The defendants' position involves serious criticism of numerous shipbuilders and shipowners over the years.’
- ‘The package is one of the largest investments ever made in newbuildings by an international shipowner.’
- ‘During this busy and expansive time, shipowners frantically sought cargo for their empty ship on the home run.’
- ‘The purpose of this act was to encourage American shipowners to build their vessels in domestic shipyards and operate them under the American flag.’
- ‘The labour exerted upon the ship has been adding to the shipowner's capital throughout the process of construction.’
