Customised, reliable & seaworthy cover for







Shipowner’s Liability

Operating a vessel requires solid and reliable protection to cope with the risks involved. P&I insurance covers the third party liabilities of shipowners and, unlike other classic insurance covers like H&M, LoH etc., comprises a wide range of perils.

Hanseatic P&I Shipowner’s Liability offers shipowners full third party liability coverage in line with the needs of this very specific business.



Charterer’s Liability

Hanseatic P&I Charterer‘s Liability offers classic P&I protection including the typical perils of charter circumstances like, amongst others, “damage to hull” which covers any damage to or loss of a chartered vessel and is therefore especially important for the charterer.

A shortfall of cover – especially for the cargo claim liability in case the charterer issues his own Bills of Lading – may lead to considerable costs and should be avoided by all means.



Inland Craft Liability

Hanseatic P&I for Inland Craft is tailor-made for owners, charterers and shipyards in the very specific business of inland navigation and for the units they use.

The operation of river vessels does not only require special expertise to fulfill the manifold requirements, but particularly also solid and reliable protection to cope with any risk involved. Hanseatic P&I for Inland Craft covers the costs, expenses and damages connected with legal and contractual liability towards third parties.
