New medical insurance for crew begins

ADVERTISEMENT

Superyacht Insurance Group is the exclusive insurance broker for Global Mariner, a new crew medical policy designed exclusively for yacht captains and crew.

“There are two things that set this plan apart,” said Maria Karlsson, president of Superyacht Insurance Group. “It has a simple and easy-to-understand design that will not overwhelm captains and crew. And there is one low price for all nationalities without gender and/or age discrimination.”

Developed by Azimuth Risk Solutions and Superyacht Insurance Group, the plan is underwritten by Lloyd’s of London.

Crew are covered while working onboard as well as while on vacation and between jobs under Global Mariner. The plan is primary to the yacht’s protection and indemnity policy and can be set up for worldwide coverage or can exclude the United States and Canada, Karlsson said. There is an optional dental plan and a sports rider that includes scuba diving and other sport coverage.
