Design fault – marine
We acted for the manufacturer of a fibreglass hulled catamaran which was used for fishing and diving and other recreational trips around Lord Howe Island. It was claimed that the design of the vessel, in relation to the exhaust system of the on board diesel engines, caused the engines to seize. We successfully defended the claim.
