Yacht Insurance

Stay afloat no matter what comes your way.

Yacht Insurance customized for your business needs

Spending time on your yacht is a luxurious, relaxing pastime. But, the risks associated with yacht ownership can put a damper on your downtime if you're not fully protected. Our insurance advisors will review your risks and help you decide on coverage that keeps your investment afloat.

Navigating yacht insurance can be as tricky as sailing through stormy seas. You’re risking more than just your vessel without the right coverage. It’s not just about damage or theft; personal injury and liability come into play, too.

Let’s help you chart the best course, understanding the differences between market value and fixed payout policies, and exploring optional extras.

We’ll make sure you’re shipshape and ready to face any storm.

Importance of Coverage

You’ve got to understand how crucial the right coverage is in yacht insurance. It not only protects your investment but helps you manage any risks associated with yacht ownership.

It’s not just about covering the boat; it’s about safeguarding yourself against liabilities. Imagine someone getting injured on your yacht or your vessel causing damage to another. Without adequate coverage, you’d be floating in a sea of legal complexities. Maritime law doesn’t take these matters lightly.

You also need to consider the perils of the sea itself – storms, piracy, even the potential of total loss. That’s where a detailed risk assessment comes in. You can’t predict the ocean, but with the right insurance, you can prepare for it.

Types of Policies

When it comes to protecting your vessel, understanding the different types of policies available is crucial. You’ve got options like ‘agreed value’ and ‘actual cash value’ policies. The former guarantees you a fixed payout in the event of a total loss, while the latter considers depreciation and only pays the market value at the time of the loss.

Another crucial aspect is liability coverage. It’s not just about your yacht, it’s also about other property and individuals you might inadvertently harm. This coverage will protect you from footing the bill if your vessel causes damage or injury.

Don’t forget optional extras. These can cover you for things like towing costs or damage caused by uninsured boaters. All in all, it’s about risk assessment and finding the right balance of coverage for you.

Optional Add-Ons

Consider the optional add-ons that can be included in your policy to enhance your coverage, such as towing costs and damage caused by uninsured boaters. You’re not just protecting your yacht, but your peace of mind too.

You’ll want to look at coverage for moving your vessel due to hurricane warnings. It’s a scenario you can’t afford to overlook, given the unpredictability of maritime conditions.

Additionally, consider the implications of the Jones Act, which affects your liability in case of a crew member’s injury. A policy without protection & indemnity insurance could leave you vulnerable.
