YACHT CLAIMS

A major claim is often the consequence of several technical minor failures or lack of maintenance which if they have been treated first could have been avoided the incident

NEVER UNDERTAKE TECHNICAL MODIFICATIONS ON HIS YACHT WITHOUT WARNING THE INSURANCE COMPANY 

Always warn the insurer when you go to the shipyard

On a Sailing Ship : Check the rigging every 2 -3 years by a professional. Whatever the insuruance company, they may refuse the reimbursement if the rigging failure is the cause after a lack of maintenance.

Maintain regularly your engines. Insurance companies cover “Machinery breakdown” but not if the surveyor note the breakdown is due to a lack of maintenance or a normal wear.
