CRUISER
Insurance


Boaties are a passionate lot. Our boat insurance is designed by insurance professionals with real boating experience and offers cover options to suit a variety of boats, boating lifestyles, and on water activities.

Cruisers vary widely in shapes, sizes, options and fit out, but we have cover to suit you, and depending on your boat we offer a choice of agreed or market value cover.

Our liability cover, with options up to $20 million, automatically includes pollution clean-up costs ($500,000, with options to increase if necessary) and liability accepted under a berthing agreement.

Our policy wording includes cover for your tender, and if you use it for waterskiing, wakeboarding, wakesurfing and aquaplaning, we can include liability cover for that as well.

All that fun requires equipment - Club Marine’s cover for equipment and accessories is broad enough to include the wide range of safety and sporting, fishing and recreational equipment which you use on your boat.

COVER FOR YOUR CRUISER

We provide cover for accidental loss or damage, malicious damage and theft. We understand that every cruiser is unique. Depending on your boat, you can choose between agreed and market value, and your pride and joy is covered by policy benefits that are designed with cruisers in mind. Salvage costs and emergency costs are covered in addition to the sum insured.

COVER FOR PARTS

Large vessels have complex needs and repairs may also be more complex. Club Marine offers access to our list of approved repairers (or you can choose your own repairer) and cover for parts and repairs that are damaged as the result of an insured incident, so you can get back out on the water, faster.

LIABILITY COVER

With options from $2 million to $10 million, Club Marine covers your third party liability. We also include cover for accidental pollution and liability under a berthing agreement and optional waterskiing cover, including for your tender boat.

COVER FOR YOUR TENDER

Club Marine cruiser insurance automatically includes your cruiser’s tender, including your choice of optional covers like observers’ and water skiers’ liability cover.

COVER FOR GEAR

Often, your sports and fishing gear can be as important to you as the boat itself. Our cruiser cover automatically includes fishing gear, diving equipment, tools and personal effects. Cover starts at $1,500 per item, up to $10,000 total, but higher limits can be discussed - just call us!

Before making a decision, please consider the relevant Product Disclosure Statement (PDS)/Policy Wording, which is available on this website, your printed quote, which may list additional terms and conditions specific to your Policy and other Policy documentation including the Schedule.
