What is Marine Insurance?

Protection for businesses, such as shipping and transport industries, from loss or damage to vessels, cover for cargo against damage, loss or misplacement, and third party liability cover for the operations of the business. Our insurance brokers can explain how Marine Insurance works and tailor an insurance program that works for you

Marine Insurance Products

Hull Insurance

Protection & Indemnity Insurance

Covering liabilities associated with the operation or ownership of a vessel.

Marine Cargo Insurance

Designed to protect the sender of the goods usually the manufacturer or the seller.
The purchaser may also elect to take out this form of insurance cover.

Marine General Liability Insurance

Third party liability cover which is designed to cover the operations of the business.

Ship Repairer’s Legal Liability Insurance

Provides cover for the legal liability for ship repairers in the course of their business.

Terminal Operator’s Legal Liability (TOLL)

Provides liability cover that a terminal operator has for damage to cargo whilst it is in their care, custody or control during transit or storage.

Seafarers Insurance

Whilst this is not technically a Marine product it is designed to provide cover for employees working in the maritime industry that meet the Seacare scheme criteria. Seafarers Insurance can also be arranged for employees who do not meet the Seacare Scheme criteria but are required to have seafarers cover by virtue of an EBA.
