Insurance for Marine Businesses 

Marine businesses are complex and multifaceted, and every marine operation faces unique risks, both on and off the water.  
In today’s insurance marketplace, securing adequate limits for property, excess liability, D&O, and other lines of coverage continue to challenge marine businesses of all types. Marine businesses in CAT-prone coastal locations face additional risks and insurance placement challenges. 

Our specialist marine advisors collaborate with you to create custom insurance solutions and tailored risk management programs that are based on an analysis of your existing insurance protection, a review of your exposures, and an understanding of your future coverage needs. To minimize your ongoing exposure to marine risks, we work with you to develop comprehensive loss control and safety programs. We offer solutions for nearly all types of recreational marine entities, including boat builders, boat dealers, marine equipment manufacturers, recreational marinas, yacht clubs, community sailing programs, yacht brokers, and more.
