Additional covers

Cover for Additional Equipment and Personal Effects

Just like home insurance is split into buildings and contents cover, yacht insurance covers the yacht itself but also the items onboard such as fish finders, fishing gear, diving equipment and even clothing such as expensive sailing jackets. For this cover your excess will be different to that of the rest of your policy. It’s usually lower but will vary depending on the amount you need to claim for. On that basis it’s best you check your policy documents to be sure which excess will apply.

Personal Accident Cover

Of course your yacht is important to you but so is your personal safety. When you select a yacht insurance policy with personal accident cover included, you’ll be covered for medical expenses and emergency treatment. If you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs when an accident occurs your cover will be invalid.

Extra Geographical Area cover

Broad navigation limits are designed to meet each owner’s own cruising needs, always subject to International Trading Warranties and Joint War Listed Area exclusions.

Waterskiers and Other Towed Items

You can add options to the policy to cover any person waterskiing, kneeboards, wakeboards or whilst being towed on tubes.

Land Transit Cover

Contingency Land transit cover for the vessel from the assureds residence to Marina in Qatar and vice versa.

Uninsured Boater Coverage (for Mega Yachts)

Pays for bodily injury to persons aboard the insured watercraft who are injured by an uninsured owner or operator of another vessel.

Protection & Indemnity Cover (for Mega Yachts)

The cover protects owners against losses and liabilities towards third parties where the amount of insurance under the liability to third party section under the yacht policy is insufficient.
