Cover Your Boat and Marine Activities with Our All-Inclusive Coverage

Charter Boat Insurance

Charter Boat Insurance

Whether your boat is used for a party, a corporate event, or just taking a tourist for a ride, there are always potential risks on the water. As the owner of the vessel, you are responsible for what happens to or due to your boat. This includes any damage caused to your boat due to natural circumstances or vandalism and any damage caused to other people and properties by your boat. This is where our commercial and charter boat liability insurance can come to your rescue and help keep your business stay afloat.

Our commercial and charter boat insurance cover most of your commercial boats, including party boats, bar boats, double-decker boats, commercial fishing vessels, tugboats, passenger charters, and rental vessels.

Marine Liability Insurance

Marine Liability Insurance

From hull damage to lost cargo and liability risks associated with a collision, pollution, and third-party injuries, maritime professionals (ship repairers, charterers, marina operators, and terminal operators) are exposed to numerous risks, which can turn into costly liabilities.

This is where a marine liability insurance policy can help. It protects you against all the losses and liability risks arising from your operations on or near the water, keeping your business afloat.
