Marine & Cargo

Shipping is exposed to many risks arising from the perils of the sea and also from the quality and age of a vessel itself. Hull insurance provides protection against loss or damage to the vessel itself, its machinery and its equipment.

We can source on your behalf a broad range of policy coverage tailored to your client’s level of risk exposure:

  • All risks including machinery breakdown
  • Total loss only
  • Increased value
  • Restricted conditions excluding partial loss for machinery and heavy weather damage
  • Loss of hire
  • Mortgagees’ interests and mortgagees’ additional perils
  • War
  • Reinsurance: both proportional and non-proportional

The key benefits of this product include:

  • Worldwide comprehensive all-risks coverage for all equipment owned or operated
  • Flexible underwriting and pricing to cater for use and geographic location
  • Automatic coverage for additional equipment
  • 24/7 coverage – protects equipment in storage, in transit, onboard vessel or in operation
  • Coverage for equipment at exhibitions or events
  • Loss of revenue coverage or continuing expenses following damage or loss of equipment up to a maximum aggregated value of GBP50,000
