Charterers Liability cover

The relationship between a Charterer and an Owner is generally defined in the charter party. Certain liabilities remain with the Owners whilst others are transferred to the Charterers. The legal responsibilities and liabilities under the terms of a charter party are significant.

Insurance needs to differ considerably depending on the charter party (e.g. NYPE | GENCON | TANKVOY | SUPPLYTIME), the cargo shipped, the trading area, the operations etcetera.

Our cover caters for the full range of chartering operations. From single ship charterers to large operators, from dry bulk to tankers, from containers to specialist craft: we handle all types of enquiries. We offer fast turnaround times and competitive rates, maintaining the highest service standards.
