West P&I: Stowaways – Problematic Ports

The issue of stowaways onboard entered vessels is a perennial problem for the Club, with 60 cases involving 220 stowaways in the past 12 months, costing over USD 1.6 million to rectify and occupying a considerable amount of time to bring to satisfactory conclusions.

An analysis of the Club’s stowaway claims experience for the past 12 months has been carried out to identify those ports that are, in the experience of our Membership, stowaway hot spots. A similar exercise was undertaken a few years ago with the results contained in the Club’s Loss Prevention Bulletin on Stowaways.
