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.
Hull Solutions provides cover on an all-risks basis and is written in plain English. It’s an easy-to-understand alternative to traditional Hull and Machinery policies that refer to Institute Clauses.
