Commercial Vessel Insurance

Commercial Passenger Boat InsuranceCommercial vessels are defined as boats that are used in performing a service. Whether it is transporting passengers, fishing, salvage, or pushing other boats, they are performing some form of work. Tug Boats, barges, ferries, tour and salvage boats all fall under this category.

Commercial boat owners incur an enormous amount of responsibility serving the needs of others whether it is transporting passengers, providing food for others or performing tasks that are unique. They are also exposed to increasing liability. As new maritime laws are created or changed, the exposure to liability increases almost daily. Having an outdated or inadequate commercial vessel insurance policy can have disastrous consequences in the event of an incident.

At Douglas Maritime Insurance Brokers Inc., our agents specialize in developing comprehensive insurance policies for commercial vessel owners. While there are the necessary basics such as Protection and Indemnity and Hull and Machinery Insurance, there are also other supplemental policies that might be necessary such as liability coverage if you serve liquor or other circumstances. Since each business is unique, we can create a policy that is tailored your needs so you have the coverage you need to stay protected.

We will take the time to understand the needs of your business and work with you as your business grows to make sure you are always up to date on coverage.
