Inland Craft P&I

Inland waterway craft – including barges, narrow boats and cruisers – face many of the same legal liabilities, including barges, narrow boats and cruisers, as seagoing ships. Our specialist P&I offers support in the event of a claim and protect you financially if you incur costs as the result of an accident or error in judgement.

About the product

All of our policies are matched to the unique specification of your inland craft, based on age, size and purpose. So, whether it is used as a dry cargo vessel, a tanker, or pleasure craft, we can build the cover around your individual needs – up to a maximum limit of USD 1 billion.

Typical clients

Our Inland Craft P&I policies are suitable for owners of all types of inland craft vessels, including barges, narrow boats and cruisers.

Core areas of cover 

While much of the market is concentrated in the north of Europe (particularly in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany), we welcome owners from any European country who wish to insure their vessels. Typical cover includes:


Issues with cargo including loss, damage or late delivery.


Other marine liability risks:  including death, injury or illness suffered by the crew or third parties, collision, pollution, wreck removal or fines.

Marine defence cover

Our Inland Craft P&I cover can be taken out together with our additional Marine Defence (FD&D) Insurance, which covers your legal costs in the event of a claim. It also covers the legal cost of defending a dispute arising from charter parties and other contracts.
