Suits: UK Corporations

Give your customers the right cover for their vessels.

We are able to provide tailored cover for UK domiciled customers using either of the following options.

Hull Solutions

Our new policy provides cover on an ‘All Risks’ basis and does not incorporate any Institute Clauses within the wording. Written in plain English, the Hull Solutions policy provides a clear and effective alternative to the traditional Hull and Machinery policies that refer to ‘Institute Clauses’ which can be difficult for non-specialist marine brokers to decipher.

Institute Time Clauses

This is our traditional Hull and Machinery product with cover based on the Institute Time Clauses and can be tailored to the needs and requirements of clients.

Both options include physical loss to the vessel cover as well as cover for liability to third parties on request.
