Marine Liability Insurance

Marine liability insurance is designed for marine operators including ship repairers, yachting and boating clubs and freight forwarders to protect their marine business against legal liability and property damage claims.

Unfortunately shipping accidents, cargo loss, vessel damage and injuries happen more often than you might imagine, so it’s important to take the appropriate precautions and get the right cover for your marine business.
