Insurance For Sailing: The Most Important Products Explained
Sailing Yacht Hull Insurance
If you want to protect your yacht against damage and yourself from the financial costs resulting from an accident you should consider taking out a Hull Insurance policy. Hull insurance covers you for damage to your own yacht and is one of the main types of marine insurance policies available. It covers a broad range of damage to a yacht’s hull, machinery and equipment.
However, not all Hull Insurance policies are the same. The devil is in the detail. You will want to familiarise yourself with any policy exclusions before purchasing an insurance for sailing. Insurance is about protecting yourself against the unexpected, so policies generally exclude those things which can be anticipated or prevented. Many of the exclusions therefore come down to things like wear and tear, gradual deterioration or lack of maintenance. If something is likely to fail due to its age or condition, replacement is something you should be considering yourself, and any responsible boat owner will carry out regular inspections and maintenance. But one very important question you need to ask is, if you have an accident because of a part failing due to wear and tear or fault, is the resulting damage excluded, or only the part that failed? And is that really clear in the wording? Consider the consequences.
Sailing Yacht Third Party Liability Insurance
Whilst it is not a mandatory requirement for you to have Third Party Liability Insurance, to ensure you are protected from unexpected financial burden as a consequence of accidental damage or injury to a third party we recommend taking out a Yacht Third Party Liability Insurance policy. In fact, many local authorities and marinas insist upon this type of insurance for sailing.
Even when in storage in the winter and during transport to the storage location there are risks of third party damage for which you, as the yacht owner, may be held liable. It is therefore important to have a liability policy in force.
