Specialty Coverage

Vessel repairers' coverage

If you fix vessels for a living, you know the types of calamities that can befall a boat. Whether you repair boats full time or part time, you are responsible for the welfare of the craft you are working on until it leaves your premises.

Along with more standard risks such as third-party liability and coverages in case of equipment failure, we know your business and how to protect you. We can even get you coverage in cases where legal action arises out of a repair.

Cargo or transit: if parts or other specialized equipment are needed to fix your vessel, you’ll want to make sure these items are covered during transit to the ship repair yard.

Underwater services: whether it’s propeller repairs, hull cleaning or other types of underwater work, there are a number of risks associated with this type of activity.

Welding work: if your boat needs welding work, particularly if you’re a commercial vessel operator, you can lose a significant amount of income.

Wreck removal: if your boat sinks or becomes partially submerged and needs to be safely moved, this will cover the barges, cranes or other floatation devices necessary.

Let our insurance specialists help you assess your boat and marine insurance needs by contacting us at our Richmond or Coquitlam locations or if you prefer any of our other offices in the Vancouver area.
