Truly comprehensive yacht insurance goes beyond physical assets – it should protect you from the liabilities associated with operating a yacht, too.

Our Yacht and Superyacht experts deal with all aspects of insurance, always putting your interests first. 

Your requirements are unique, and we strive to arrange tailored solutions to match your needs for your vessel and associated cover. We can advise and protect on a broad range of risks; from new build insurance to war risks and piracy, from fine art and contents insurance to medical and personal accident cover for crew and guests. 

To offer a one broker solution for all your assets or liabilities that require protection, we work closely with our Private Clients specialist team. Our relationship with specialist underwriters allows us to provide the highest level of customer service to meet your needs, all while reducing the time necessary to arrange the insurance or make a claim.

We have more than 100 dedicated, multilingual yacht Protection & Indemnity professionals globally, and have decades of combined experience arranging protection and handling claims for luxury yachts and superyachts.
