The UK Club offers a dedicated team and specialist insurance cover for charterers and traders.
The UK P&I Club is one of the oldest P&I clubs in the world. It provides Protection and Indemnity insurance in respect of third party liabilities and expenses arising from owning ships or operating ships as principals. One of the largest mutual marine protection and indemnity organisations it insures over 200 million tonnes of owned and chartered ships from more than fifty countries across the globe.
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.
