        2. Development of the doctrine of seaworthiness in maritime law. In marine insurance, seaworthiness had its origins in the common law at the beginning of 19th century, at least. In the case of Christie v. Secretan, the court held that compliance with a requirement of seaworthiness is a condition precedent to the underwriter's liability for a loss. In order for a cause of action to be brought under the doctrine of unseaworthiness, the injured party must show the proximate cause of the injury was by a defective condition of the ship or her equipment. The duty for seaworthiness is absolute and independent of negligence. The warranty of seaworthiness is owed to those claiming seaman.

      Seaworthiness is a concept of vital importance to all those contracts related to vessels, for examples charter parties, Towing, transportation of goods. Under the Italian Doctrine developed by. Warranty of Seaworthiness and Absolute Liability Although, as has been observed, there has been a substantial modification in the law of warranty, and perhaps an even greater one in the law of tort, holding the manufacturer, the vendor and others in "the distributive chain" 7" liable for injuries to .

        The breach of this implied warranty at common law has been held to be regarded as a breach of an innominate term. When there is a breach therefore, the remedy will depend on the seriousness of the breach. [20] The only way out of this implied term of seaworthiness is by contract. This has to be clear, express and unambiguous. [21]. For example, the doctrine of seaworthiness as applied in personal injury situations is not the same as the doctrine applied to damaged cargo ship-ments under the Harter Act, 27 Stat. (), 46 U.S.C. §§ (). The warranty of seaworthiness was first applied to seamen by implication in early cases of wage forfeiture for aban-.

Seaworthiness is a concept of vital importance to all those contracts related to vessels, for examples charter parties, Towing, transportation of goods.

Under the Italian Doctrine developed by Crisafulli Buscemi, the concept of seaworthiness may vary depending on weather it is considered absolute, “In abstracto”, or relative “In concreto”.
