At sea, comprehensive insurance is especially important.

Comprehensive insurance is recommended for boats

Different rules apply at sea to on land when it comes to insurance liability. That is, when you drive a car you have a statutory liability for damage you cause others. In other words, if a car damages something or injures someone, the car is the cause of the damage or injury and the driver or owner is liable.

It works differently with boats. The one who caused damage to a boat is only liable if they have been negligent or are directly responsible for the damage.

If your boat is damaged, you therefore run a greater risk of having to pay for your own repairs, even if it’s not your fault. This means that it is especially important to have comprehensive cover at sea. This way you are insured against the many different situations that you would otherwise have risked paying for yourself.

Examples may include if your boat is damaged by another boat that capsizes in bad weather when laid-up. Or if someone collides with you due to a technical fault on their boat.
