Yacht P&I

British Marine has been managing the liabilities of ships and smaller vessels since 1876, that includes managing the complex needs of the yacht industry, for which we have built a dedicated proposition to secure the risks of professionally crewed yachts.

With no lower or upper tonnage restrictions, and limits of up to US$500m, we provide all ancillary liability covers, from overside activities and water sports, to the use of drones.

As part of QBE, one of the world’s leading marine insurers, we are confident that we have the appetite, reach and expertise to provide your yacht – wherever it is – with the security you need.

Your protection

At British Marine, buying the policy is just the starting point. When you partner with us, you will gain access to some of the broadest, most comprehensive and competitively priced insurance in the market.

Highlights of our yacht cover include:

  • Guests
  • Crew
  • Charter
  • Water sports/overside activity
  • Tenders
  • Contractual
  • Legal expenses

Our flexible proposition means that whatever your needs, we have a risk solution that fits.

Our promise to you

At British Marine, we believe that the claims service is every bit as important as underwriting. That’s why we have built a team with decades of experience in insurance as well as knowledge drawn from a broad range of other sectors, including International Group Clubs, fixed-cost providers, ship owners, engineers and law firms.

Our dedicated claims handlers are supported by over 480 correspondents in more than 230 ports, meaning we can provide quick, local and effective support, whatever your needs and wherever you are in the world.

With that breadth of expertise at your disposal, you can be confident, should the worst happen, that you have a partner with the ability and financial means to get you back on the water as soon as possible.

Our approach to risk

Prevention is, of course, better than cure. Which is why, at British Marine, we make our loss-prevention team’s expertise available to all our customers, in a way that suits them and their needs.

We combine our own risk expertise with that of our carefully chosen partners to ensure that you get the best advice and support from experienced mariners and engineers – people who know exactly what it’s like to be in your shoes.

Your risk is our risk, and we will work hand-in-hand with you to stop the worst from happening, in every way we can.

With British Marine, you don’t just have a risk partner. You have one of the most experienced, financially robust and open-minded insurers ready, willing and able to put the wind in your sails, wherever your yacht is headed next.
