Skippers Choice® Liability Insurance for Mariners

Charter & Delivery Captain & Crew Liability Insurance

Often a Skipper will have an opportunity to work a passage or relieve a buddy for a charter and needs insurance coverage before assuming command or taking the helm.

Skippers Choice® Marine Liability can be customized to cover Your Third- Party Liability…

  • as a delivery skipper or crew, or a captain who drives more than one vessel
  • when the owner requires you to have insurance for a passage, a delivery or charter use
  • when you act as a captain for clients who bareboat charter but want a captain to operate the boat while they enjoy themselves
  • if the owner’s insurance does not cover you when are the operator or in command.
  • if the boat has low limits of liability insurance coverage or a judgement against you exceeds the owner’s coverage (if any)
  • Legal fees related to a covered Liability claim against you
