Mexican Liability Coverage
Does Your Yacht Insurer Provide the Coverage Required to Cruise to Mexico? Pantaenius Does.
Did you know that yachts entering Mexico must have local liability coverage? This type of yacht liability insurance (in addition to your regular liability coverage) covers damages and injuries to third parties. Even if your U.S. policy includes extended coverage to Mexico, the Mexican authorities do not recognize it as valid.
Most Mexican marinas require proof of this coverage to even dock or moor—and if you don't have it, your vessel can be seized! It is also legally required by Mexico's Federal Article 502, which states that a minimum Liability coverage must be provided by an insurance agency registered with the Mexican Department of Insurance.
Beyond the possibility of incurring out-of-pocket liability for third-party damages, penalties for not having this required coverage can be severe—including possible fines or imprisonment.
