Shipowners P&I

Owning a vessel involves some serious responsibilities in today’s complex market. Our Shipowners’ P&I product is specially designed to cover your legal liabilities, so that you are financially protected and fully supported in the event of a claim against you.

About the product

Rather than adopting a one-size-fits all approach, our policies are tailored to the type of vessel you own, what it’s used for and the nature of the risks involved. We accept fleets or singletons and have no restrictions on the age or class of vessels we insure – up to a USD 1 billion maximum.
