Towage contract liabilities
We provide cover in respect of liabilities that may be incurred during ordinary harbour towage and may, by special arrangement, offer you cover on appropriate terms for situations beyond harbour towage. We also give cover for liabilities under the terms of the usual contracts for towage by your ship or another ship or object. However, some contracts are unusual or have indemnities which cannot be Pooled and require additional covers. The Club has worked with owners signing onerous contracts which are not on knock for knock basis.
