Yacht Insurance from Club Marine


Yachties 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.

Yachts vary widely, so 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 up to $500,000, with options to increase if necessary, and liability accepted under a berthing agreement.

You have the option of social or extended yacht racing, depending on whether you are into recreational racing, or prefer more serious competition.

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 YACHT

We provide cover for accidental loss or damage, malicious damage and theft.
We understand that every yacht is unique. Depending on your boat, you can choose between agreed and market value, and our policy contains policy benefits and options that are designed with yachts in mind.

COVER FOR INSURED PARTS

Complex 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).
We also cover masts, spars rigging and sails, so you can get back on the water faster.

RACING COVER

When you're racing, you don’t have time to worry about insurance. Club Marine's yacht insurance automatically covers you for social racing.

No forms or extra fees required. For serious racing, you need serious cover. We offer optional cover for extended and offshore racing, including loss of entry fees up to $2,000.

LIABILITY COVER

With options from $2 million to $10 million, Club Marine covers your third party liability. We also include cover for accidental pollution clean-up costs, and liability you may incur under a berthing agreement.

COVER FOR YOUR TENDER

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

Any advice here does not take into account your objectives, financial situation or needs. Terms, conditions, limits and exclusions apply. 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.
