Part IDetermination of Open Market Value

1(1)The open market value of any vessel or other structure and its fittings and equipment shall be taken for the purposes of section 2 of this Act to be the price which they would fetch at the time of their delivery pursuant to the contract in question on a sale in the open market between buyer and seller independent of each other.

(2)The said price shall be determined on the assumption that the buyer will bear freight, insurance and all other costs, charges and expenses incurred in respect of the vessel or structure and other items in question after their delivery as aforesaid or, where delivery is to be effected outside the United Kingdom, after their departure from the United Kingdom for the purpose.

(3)For the purposes of this paragraph, a sale in the open market between a buyer and seller independent of each other presupposes—

(a)that the vessel or structure and other items in question are the sole consideration for the price paid, and

(b)that the price is not influenced by any commercial, financial or other relationship, whether by contract or otherwise, between the seller or any person associated in business with him and the buyer or any person associated in business with him (other than the relationship created by the sale of the said vessel or structure and other items), and

(c)that neither the seller nor any person associated in business with him has provided any part of the price, and that no part of the price will be returned to the buyer or any person associated in business with him.

(4)For the purposes of the last foregoing sub-paragraph, two persons shall be deemed to be associated in business with one another if, whether directly or indirectly, either of them has any interest in the business or property of the other, or both have a common interest in any business or property, or some third person has an interest in the business or property of both of them.
