Yacht & Pleasure Craft Insurance

Specialized coverage for smoother sailing

We’ve helped yachts and pleasure crafts around the globe set sail with our underwriting expertise behind them.

We insure everything from small pleasure crafts to harder-to-place yachts almost anywhere in the world, protecting the vessels of sport fishing enthusiasts in Central America, to passionate day sailors in New England, and recreational cruisers in Italy. Taking great care to meet the varied needs of our highly valued clientele, we look for constant innovations to our approach to risk and tailoring coverage.


Tenders and Trailers

Tender coverage is available for any vessel that is capable of storing a tender onboard or where an underwriter-approved, professionally manufactured towing bridle is used. Trailer coverage is available for any vessel capable of being transported on a trailer specifically designed to be used with that vessel.


Coverage is available for full-time, part-time, contingent (relief) and trip crew members. Crew coverage is typically offered at a limit equal to the third-party liability limit, but sub-limits of coverage are available.

Uninsured Boaters coverage is offered at no additional premium at a limit equal to the Hull Sum Insured or $100,000 USD, whichever is greater.
