Do I Really Need Insurance For My Motor Yacht?
Insurance helps you protect yourself against risks. The types of insurance that you need will depend on what you need to protect. Boat Insurance can typically be split into two types, Hull and Third Party Liability. We generally recommend that boat owners insure themselves against both the liability risks arising from the use of their own boat (Third Party Liability) and loss or damage to the boat itself (Hull). You may, of course, decide not to take out a Hull Insurance and fover the financial consequences of any damage to the boat yourself. In these cases, we would recommend, as a minimum, you take out Third Party Liability insurance.
Insurance for Motor Yacht Owners: The Most Important Policies
Motor Yacht Hull Insurance
This type of insurance protects you against costs arising from loss or damage to your motor yacht. The Pantaenius Motor Yacht Cover Plus policy is based on an Agreed Fixed Value and offers the most comprehensive cover available in the UK and covers your motor yacht against all risks including cover for mechanical breakdown, damage caused by misfuelling and loss or damage to fuel, all included as standard. With an Agreed Fixed Value policy, the value of the boat is agreed between insured and insurer right from the start and that’s what is covered in the event of a total loss whereas some insurance providers will only offer market value or reserve the right to replace the marine vessel with a similar one. Most boat hull insurance policies will have an excess. An excess is the amount you agree to pay towards any claim you make. Amounts differ from policy to policy as does the application – so if comparing two policies, one possibly with a higher excess than the other, look to see what type of claim it does or does not apply to.
Motor Yacht Third Party Liability Insurance
Unlike with motor, there is no legal requirement to have marine Third Party Liability Insurance. However, having this type of insurance for your motor yacht makes sound financial sense as it will protect you against any third party liability for injury or damage caused by you or your motor yacht. The consequence of damaging a jetty, blocking a channel or water pollution can quickly bring a significant financial burden should you not have the appropriate insurance in place.
