The Shipowners’ Club

About Us:

The Shipowners’ Club has in-depth knowledge of the risks and liabilities you face when operating your fleet, borne from over 160 years of experience in providing Protection and Indemnity (P&I) cover, Legal Costs Cover and associated insurances.

As market leader, we insure over 32,000 small and specialist vessels across the globe. Every year, 95% of our Members choose to stay with us, and our top 25 Members hold an average of 24 years’ continuous entry; testament to our ability to serve Members’ best interests and respond to changing needs.

We have a wide spread of Members across a range of vessel types, operating sectors and geographical areas. This diversification delivers stability, allowing us to enjoy a strong balance sheet and an A rating from Standard & Poor’s.

Referred to as a P&I Club, Shipowners’ is one of thirteen Clubs which make up the International Group, insuring over 90% of the world’s tonnage.

What we do:

Liability insurance for yacht owners, operators and managers.

For over 25 years we have supported the yacht market with dedicated and specialist underwriters who work closely alongside leading brokers.

We are proud to say that we insure the liability risks of a significant section of the luxury yacht market worldwide.

Our specialist insurance policy was developed specifically for the yacht owning community. Traditionally our insurance is based upon our Club Rules, but as the language used is often better suited to the commercial vessels we insure, we crafted a plain language policy to meet the unique requirements of the yacht market. It is one of the most comprehensive yacht liability policies available.

There is no limitation on size, area of navigation or number of crew and, as we understand the needs of owners, captains and managers, we can tailor our insurance to meet specific needs. We provide protection for many different eventualities for liability risks associated with crew, guests, water sports, racing, contracts, pollution, war risks (P&I) and legal costs cover.
