INTER OFFICE EXPERTISE

Yacht Insurance requires insight into multiple areas that make up the insurability of a yacht, the “risk”. Our multiple departments and inter-office expertise enable us to properly assess a yacht’s exposure. One must understand how a yacht is used, what regulations are in place, crew composition, the sales process and exhibitions as well as charter process and contracts. Our company works together to ensure we are up to date with any changes and evolvements that surround our yachts and our clients. Our vessels are all reviewed in their entirety by our team of experts as a proactive approach to ensure our clients protection.

COMPLIANCE & REGULATION

Through our in-house team of experts we are always aligned with Flag State and Coast Guard authorities to ensure that a vessel’s documentation is up to date and in compliance with the latest laws and regulations.

AVAILABLE TO CONSULT 24/7

We are available at all times to consult our clients on daily matters and ready to fully manage the claim process from the moment an incident occurs until the final settlement.

OUR PRODUCTS for charterers:

Trip Cancellation Insurance

Despite our best intentions, sometimes life gets in the way and we need to cancel our holiday plans. Trip Cancellation Insurance helps to protect a charter travel investment from the unexpected, with affordable premiums and minimal paperwork. Some examples of situations where this cover is necessary include trip cancellation due to sickness, injury, or death of the insured/family member/business partner; theft of passports; natural disasters; jury duty, and many more. As a charterer and/or guest you may cancel your booked trip for any reason and may be reimbursed for part of your pre-paid fee.

Charterer Liability INSURANCE

Accidents may happen when it’s least expected so it’s always best to be prepared. The Charter Liability insurance provides cover for situations where guests are liable for damage caused to their charter yacht – including the hull, tenders/toys, interior furnishings and other equipment – or to third parties. While as charterers and / or guests you may be covered under the yacht owner's liability policy, this extra cover allows you to completely relax and enjoy your holiday, knowing you are fully protected when chartering an expensive yacht.
