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
