Marine Professional Liability Insurance

Marine Professional Liability Insurance

In a complex operating environment where precision is key, even the best preparation and efforts can go awry, resulting in a loss or a claim.

If a third party suffers loss or damages as a result of a mistake made by a professional or the failure to exercise the required skill in providing a professional service, the financial consequences can be devastating.

Marine Professional Liability coverage protects a wide range of organizations and their professionals involved in marine- related trades. From shipbuilding, marine surveyors and engineers to rig builders, naval architects and oil and gas offshore consultants, a professional indemnity policy covers against financial liability arising from a breach of professional duties committed in the conduct of business. It also covers the costs and expenses of defending such claims.

Types of jobs that are typically covered:

  • Marine engineers
  • Bunker brokers
  • Hydrographic surveyors
  • Crew managers
  • Offshore exploration-related logistics and services
  • Naval architects
  • Project management services
  • Marine pilots
  • Freight brokers
  • Shipyard engineering and design services
  • Average adjusters
  • Classification societies
  • Supply vessel managers
  • Oceanographers
  • Bathymetric surveyors
