Marine Hull and Watercraft Liability Insurance

Extreme weather, an accident or collision can put your valuable vessel out of commission. Travelers Commercial Hull provides coverage for physical damage to the hull, machinery and equipment of commercial vessels. We also cover property damage resulting from collision with other vessels. 

Written in conjunction with commercial hull, protection and indemnity (P&I) coverage protects the vessel owner against legal liabilities arising out of negligence in the operation of a vessel. Coverage includes liability for both property damage and bodily injury.
