Marine Hull

We offer protection for port and terminal property, business interruption and vessel construction risks. We also insure marine war risks and ancillary hull risks.

Shipyard, port and terminal property written includes physical loss/damage to piers, jetties, wharves, dry docks and handling equipment, and to port craft (such as pilot launches and tugs). Packages can include business interruption including loss of revenue arising from port blockage, loss of insured property or denial of access. We underwrite vessel construction on many of the world's premier shipyards, as well as one-off conversions.

The marine hull war book provides cover to vessels on a worldwide trading basis, subject to a list of excluded areas. We do not write war on land or political risks. The balance of our current hull book is often written as part of a package policy and comprises hull all risks, port risks and mortgagees' interest. Multi-section insurance packages are available which can include a broad range of coverage, including liability to cater specifically for clients' requirements.
