Reardon Smith Line v Yngvar Hansen-Tangen, [1976] 1 WLR 989


Involved sale of ship – When delivered one party didn’t want it so said it didn’t correspond w/ the description


A buyer can only reject goods where they fail to conform to description in that they are a “different kind of goods” than what the buyer contracted to buy.


Argument – the ship was too big to built a yard specified in the K, so it was subcontracted out – when it came time to deliver the ship buyer rejected it because said it didn’t match description in the K. This is not a SGA case – the sale of chartering a ship is not a good.


P failed to prove that this case was a description case
