Ship Insurance Protection


Ship Insurance Protection

The scope of the boat can range from total ship replacement if destroyed, to personal responsibility coverage, and everything in between. When deciding what policy is right for you, consider what your needs and risks are, and how much you are willing to spend to protect them.

Full coverage insurance is the safest route for shipowners who want to insure their property. With full coverage, ship owners can choose to ensure the cost of replacing the ship if it is completely destroyed. Coverage can also include damage to the structure of the ship, or engine. Coverage for loss or damage to personal property while on board can also be included. Other options can include injury protection, rescue or destruction of shipwrecks, loss of reimbursement of usage fees, towing costs, and even investigation services.

Coverage insurance protects you in the event of accident liability. In general, shipowners can choose one of the ship's responsibilities, also known as compensation insurance, which will only cover damage done by the ship, or personal responsibility, which will cover damage done by the ship owner, regardless of where or how they happen.

Although liability insurance is generally the cheapest, it is important to remember that it will only cover the costs of damage / repairs to third parties. Your own property is not covered by liability insurance. In this way, even though liability insurance often appears to be the cheapest option for shipowners, if the ship is destroyed, replacement costs will far burden the savings on premiums.
