What if...

  • Your arrangements for financial responsibilities to crew are not MLC compliant?
  • A crew member under contract is injured whilst on holiday and needs treatment?
  • A water leak from hotel services causes interior damage?
  • Your tender is lost or damaged?
  • You need towage and the vessel is rendered ‘not under command’ - are emergency expenses covered?
  • There’s a collision while your craft is safely moored alongside?
  • You encounter a contract dispute over the sale of your vessel?
  • Your vessel causes damage to someone else's property?
  • Your water craft activities cause injury to a third party?
  • Your tanks leak and you're fined for water pollution or a spill following a collision?
  • A guest slips on deck, injuring themselves?
  • Crew are injured and you’re deemed negligent as owner of the work place?

Some problems are worth losing sleep over. Insurance needn’t be one of them.

About La Playa Private Client

Specialist & Independent

Specialist & Independent

La Playa Private Client creates a safe space for you to live life to the full, enjoying your family, friends, and assets wherever you are in the world - without worry or hassle.

We can make sense of all your insurance needs - property, yachts and superyachts, high-performance and classic cars, private jets, art, wine and jewellery collections – and your liabilities too. We can pull multiple assets together on a single “portfolio” policy – or if you prefer, take care of each item separately. 

Amid the impersonal and automated world of large insurance corporations, La Playa provides a refreshingly boutique-style service, with individual advice, and cover based on in-depth understanding of your specific situation. After a detailed and confidential review of your needs and priorities, we’ll structure your insurance arrangements so you know you and your family are protected, come what may.  

In-house Wealth Management

We also offer Investments & Pensions and Financial Planning: a joined up approach with a team of advisers working for your best financial interests - all under one roof.
