THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE ALL RISK COVER

A reliable all risk cover with an agreed fixed value, which covers your sailing yacht including machinery, tender and personal watercraft even during sea transport or worldwide transit. 

WEAR AND TEAR COVER

Especially on the rig, a small defect quickly causes massive damage. This why damage to your yacht caused by wear and tear will be fully covered. Only the defective part itself is excluded.

NEW FOR OLD

A lot of owners spend a little fortune on maintenance and we appreciate that your yacht is your treasure. Our yacht insurance therefore provides New for Old cover for parts and materials of up to ten years of age.

CORROSION AND ELECTROLYSIS

Faulty seacocks or sacrificial anodes can cause serious trouble. Our Hull Plus Cover therefore covers damage caused by corrosion and electrolysis.

AGREED FIXED VALUE

Since 50 years the benchmark for yacht insurance: We agree a fixed sum with you, which is reimbursed in the event of total loss without deductions.

AROUND THE MARK

For those who enjoy the thrill of competitive sailing, the Pantaenius Sailing Yacht Hull Plus Policy includes, as standard, cover for damage incurred during regattas.

BROADER RANGE OF DEDUCTIBLE FREE CLAIMS

Some of the most common claims, such as fire, theft following violent and forcible entry or collision while moored or at anchor, are covered by our yacht insurance without excess.

HIGHER LIMITS FOR BREAKDOWN ASSISTANCE

Should you ever need emergency assistance or towing services for your yacht, these are covered up to £10,000. For such damage, just as for the possibly necessary inspection after grounding, no excess is payable.

THE MOST IMPORTANT INSURANCE PRODUCTS FOR SAILING YACHT OWNERS EXPLAINED

Sailing Yacht Liability Insurance

Even though there is no obligation to take out a sailing yacht liability insurance in the UK, we strongly advise every sailing yacht owner to take out insurance against third party claims. Even a small ramming in the harbour, where the hull of the adjacent berth is scratched, can be expensive. As soon as a third party makes a claim against you - whether justified or unjustified - the insurance provider will take care of the problem. If one of the fellow sailors on board is injured, this is also a case for liability insurance.

Those who take part in regattas are usually obliged to show their liability insurance policy. But also in almost all harbours, marinas and boat stores a boat may not be moored without this insurance cover. The countries around the Mediterranean Sea also require a valid liability insurance.  

Sailing Yacht Hull Insurance

If you want to insure the damage to your beloved sailing yacht, you should also be interested in a hull insurance. It is about total loss, partial loss but also about salvage and wreck removal after damage. Here the conditions of the different insurances are very different, so you have to look very carefully and should ask before you sign something. Especially with regard to exclusions you should read very carefully. A good example: Are the consequential damages of constructive defects and wear and tear also insured?

If you buy a modern racer cruiser, for example, you should always choose a fully comprehensive insurance, which insures the value of the yacht within the framework of the agreed fixed value without limitations after a certain amount of years. These individual parts of the contract, especially "new for old" and the so-called "fixed value", should always be explained in detail before taking out an insurance policy and the small print in the contract should be carefully read. 

By the way- In hull insurance, everything that belongs to the sailing yacht is also insured - including pots and pans, everything that belongs to the floating household.
