Who is liable for vessel collisions?

A: The owners and operators and the captains of the vessel are responsible for the safe operation of the vessels. If there is a collision between vessels, both parties, one party could be responsible. It really depends on the facts of the collision and which vessels violated rules or rule of the road.
