Chartering

Chartering

If as an owner you're chartering a yacht or superyacht, having the right insurance in place is essential.

Any vessel chartering is considered a small or large commercial yacht, and aside from complying with the Flag State rules, the owner will also need to meet the requirements of the Maritime Labour Convention MLC2006.

What if...

  • Your arrangements for financial responsibilities to crew are not MLC compliant?
  • Charterers under an MYBA or similar contract cancel at the last minute?
  • The vessel is out of action after an accident – can you claim for lost charters?

What's covered?

To charter a yacht or superyacht you'll first need a private policy. Chartering can then be added as an extension, to cover:

  • Cancellation of charter or hire
  • Loss of charter income
  • MLC certification via P&I club entry
