Gunster and Shay & Partners resolve a dispute over a sailboat transaction
Gunster, Florida-based Globalaw member, represented two individuals purchasing a 62-foot sailboat from its original owners towards the end of 2016. The sold article had been manufactured by a Taiwanese company. Having sustained damage to the yacht’s hull as well as steering defects, these issues were at the forefront of the article’s sale. The negotiation for settling a claim made under certain warranties that run in favour of a “subsequent buyer” stated in the contract encountered significant obstacles in processing the repair of the yacht. Gunster suggested to the client that Shay & Partners, Globalaw member in Taiwan, could provide local assistance. This would be the best means of delivering a positive result for all parties. The manufacturer and purchaser eventually reached a monetary settlement and cordially resolved the dispute.
