Uninterrupted coverage

Specifically designed to meet the need for specialist insurance for maritime equipment, we provide flexible cover on a global basis – whether sub-sea, topside, in transit, in store or in operation.

The policy is written in plain English, with clear, concise extensions, conditions and exclusions, and can be tailored to suit the individual requirements of your customer.

For equipment of all shapes and sizes

Our standard cover includes:

  • Physical loss, damage or destruction to maritime equipment owned, hired, loaned or leased to customer (or for which they are responsible)
  • Loss of revenue
  • Collision liability, including legal costs
  • Removal of wreck and debris removal
  • Liability for continuing hire charges
  • Automatic inclusion of additional equipment acquired
  • Damage caused by latent defect
  • New replacement value on equipment up to five-years-old
  • Airfreight replacement
  • Damage caused by customs inspection and fumigation
  • Exhibitions and loss of exhibition expenses

Cover can also be extended to include goods sold by the customer under the specific cargo section of the policy.
