Boat insurance is compulsory in most ports and marinas in Cook Islands and around the world because of legal liability (bodily injury and material damage that you could make to third parties). Therefore, it is important to subscribe at least to the minimum cover called “civil liability” or “basic insurance cover”.

We offer 2 types of insurances for Cook Islands; BASIC INSURANCE & TOP INSURANCE. It is very important to understand that the BASIC insurance we offer is similar to the “all-risk” insurance that is offered by many other insurance providers’ but at a price that is comparable to what most insurance provider’s offer liability insurance. Our BASIC insurance is actually; third-party liability insurance + fully comprehensive insurance at the price of a partially comprehensive insurance!

The TOP insurance is all-risk cover at top conditions such as payment for consequential damage, guaranteed fixed tax, no deductions “new for old” and many more.
Our TOP cover is the all-round carefree package for demanding clients. The third-party liability insurance includes a broad cover also for the use of foreign yachts. With its proper all-risks cover the fully comprehensive insurance offers a really wide-ranging product at a guaranteed fixed tax.
