Maritime ship detention occurs as a kind of last resort when a port authority finds that some sort of deficiency exists on board the ship that is not in compliance with required regulations. Some examples of non-compliance might be safety violations, pollution standards, credentialing of officers on board, etc. Often the authorities will allow a certain amount of time, either in port or at the next destination port, to rectify the issue of non-compliance, but in the most extreme cases, a ship can actually be detained.
Ship detention represents lost time – time during which the ship is not earning revenue by the transport of goods, so this is lost income to the ship owner.
