Marine Contractors Insurance

Many potential exposures exist for marine contractors when engaging in commercial and residential construction activities on and around the waterfront.  Large-scale weather events and fire are just two of the major and common perils that can halt business and sink profits. With 40% of all business owners failing after experiencing a disaster1, it's important to protect your business.

Travelers understands the marine construction business inside and out and will be responsive to your insurance needs. We can provide tailored protection for your marine and non-marine exposures as well as specialized Risk Control and Claim services to ensure you’re protected before, during and after a loss.
