Skipper insurances by Yacht Pool

Yacht Pool Logo


Yacht-Pool International is the undisputed professional in terms of specialized skipper insurances in Europe. Here you will find the full list of insurances by Yacht Pool.

Skipper´s liability Insurance

This essential insurance protects you against liability for personal injury to crew members, voyage participants, or third parties. As a skipper, you are personally liable for any damage culpably caused to other people or property with your present and future assets. Yacht-Pool covers even damage to the chartered yacht caused by gross negligence.

Skipper´s accident insurance

The skipper bears the full responsibility for the crew and material on deck. However, the liability insurance does not take effect if there is no culpability or the injured party is a family member. With this insurance, you are covered in all these cases too. Even if you get into distress at high sea, the salvage costs are covered depending on the selected sum insured.

Charter deposit insurance

If any boat damage occurs, the charter deposit will be used by the boat owner to repair the boat and will not be refunded. If this deposit is insured, it will also be refunded in case of damage on board. The Yacht-Pool deposit insurance provides unlimited cover for a whole year – worldwide!

Charter cancellation insurance

This insurance takes effect if the skipper or a crew member cannot start the trip because he or a family member is unwell or if the skipper becomes unavailable and no suitable replacement can be found. If two persons have booked together and one is unable to undertake the trip, the other party can withdraw his or her booking.

Skipper´s legal Protection

This insurance provides legal protection in connection with the assertion of claims for damages arising from private liability claims related to the yacht management and in criminal proceedings arising from a boat accident. Skipper and crew have legal protection worldwide!

Consequential damages

There is a risk that you will cause damage to the chartered vessel, with the result that it is not ready for use in time for the next charter. Regress claims may be made against you for the loss of the charter business either for legal reasons or because of the charter contract.

Confiscation of a vessel

In the event of actual or suspected criminal activities, the vessel may be impounded by the relevant authorities. Our bail deposit of up to €52,000 can ensure a temporary stay of prosecution. Confiscation may have significant financial consequences for you if the boat is not available for further chartering.
