Many vessels. Diverse businesses.

Our Hull and Machinery products are designed for a broad spectrum of businesses that own or operate commercial vessels.

We provide multiple cover solutions for a wide range of customers and vessels – from craft operating on inland and coastal waters of the UK to oceangoing hull trading internationally. All policies include physical loss to the vessel cover, and can include cover for liability to third parties on request.
