Charterers face significant liabilities, even where shipowners have their own P&I covers. Liabilities to shipowners, cargo owners and third parties may be contractual (e.g. breach of charterparty) or non-contractual (e.g. pollution).
Our charterers product responds to both, whether operational or catastrophe liabilities, with high levels of cover. It includes those risks specific to charterers as well as those covered by conventional P&I.
