3.   OV is only a Venue

3.1 OV is not a ship broker.

  • Sale, Purchase and Swaps of merchant vessels;
  • Shipyard services;
  • Vessels for Scraps;
  • Freight services;
  • Maritime Directory open for any entity involved in the Maritime   industry;
  • Maritime news;
  • Other marine services. 


 OV only provides a website platform which enables its Members to get into contact. OV is not involved in in the discussions, negotiations and contractual relationship between its Members. OV shall not be liable for the creditworthiness of its Members and does not give any warranty on the Members' ability to fulfill their contractual obligations. OV shall not be liable for the quality of the Items and services displayed on the Site by its Members and for any loss or damage incurred as a result of any transaction.

We do not review listings provided by Members, we never possess the Items offered through the Site and we are not involved in transactions between our Members. As a result, we have no control over the quality, safety or legality of the Items listed, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of Members to sell Items and propose services or the ability of Members to pay for Items and/or services. Do not assume that the offer, sale, purchase, services of any Item is valid and legal simply because it is listed on the Site. We are not responsible for ensuring that buyers and sellers actually complete a transaction. You accept sole responsibility for the legality of your actions under laws applying to you.
