Launching Watercraft Cover

that's our new Watercraft Legal Expenses cover!



Life on the ocean waves (or indeed the local river or lake!) can be pleasurable, relaxing and calm.  Navigating your way through marine law is somewhat less so! 

Marine law is complex and many everyday boating related legal disputes are not covered by a typical boat insurance policy.

In the event of a legal dispute, such as disagreements with retailers of goods and providers of services used in connection with the craft, defending criminal proceedings or racing collisions, it is important that your customers have access to the specialist advice and representation that they will need.

From canoes to jet skis and dinghies to yachts, we cover all types of leisure craft up to a LOA (average length) of 24.09 metres (79 foot) long on a scheme basis.


With our Watercraft Legal Expenses policy, your customers will benefit from: -

  • Specialist maritime law advice from LA Marine
  • A network of local agents (advocates) in France, Greece, Italy, and Spain – the most common cruising/sailing jurisdictions in the European Union
  • No aggregate limit
  • A-Rated insurance cover

Our cover includes all the features and benefits that you would expect from a typical marine policy, including £100k indemnity per claim, access to legal helplines and certain fees in the event of identity theft.

Watercraft Legal Expenses  is available as one aggregated net rate applying to all schemes (minimum 100 craft) as an optional add-on or mandatory cover on a boat insurance policy.
