Marine Project – Security Deposit Insurance

Deposit Insurance for Chartered Yachts

The phenomenon of forgetfulness occurs when you are sailing with your chartered yacht and your friends who even make the cruise special, on the waters of your dreams. It is the feeling of freedom which makes us forget that the chartered yacht is not our own.

And how quickly it can be happen? A sail breaks, the screw touches the ground or our holiday yacht gets a few scratches. Understandably, the yacht owner secures himself/herself against unpleasant surprises and charges a nominal fee, the deposit. If he/she will find only the smallest damage after your return from the dream vacation, he will partly or fully retain this deposit. For this case you are well protected by a charter deposit insurance. Take advantage of our attractive deposit insurance for Skipper and Crew.

Covered is the partial or total withhold of the charter deposit by the owner/charterer due to loss or damage at the yacht culpably caused by the policy holder or the crew.
Insurance benefit: The compensation of the damage in money not exceeding the insurance sum. The deductible is 10 % of the deposit however, at least 100,- EUR. If the regatta risk is included the deductible is 15 % of the deposit however, at least 300,- EUR.
