Marine Hull and Liabilities

Hull

We provide cover to many of the world’s finest ship owners. We write a core hull account where the owners have a proven risk management strategy, coupled with a broader client base on total loss interests and war risks. We also write a significant portfolio of vessel construction for a number of the world’s best shipyards.

Our expertise in the global marine market, understanding of our client’s businesses, and flexibility on terms and conditions allow us to create bespoke solutions for you. Speedy claims settlement typifies our deep commitment to customer service.

We pride ourselves on being available when you need us, and there is always a member of our team at the box. Our team also travels frequently to meet with our clients and understand their requirements.

  • Protection and Indemnity (vessel liabilities for ship owners)
  • Charterers liability
  • Pollution (including US “Brown Water” tug, barge, offshore supply and fishing vessels)
  • Ports and terminals, shipyard, terminal and port authority liabilities
  • Ship repairers liability

Other classes of business within the portfolio include maritime employers’ liability, cargo liabilities and marine professional indemnity (including shipping agents, ship managers, shipbrokers, marine surveyors and marine consultants).
