Insurance Guide

Your boat is fully insured for loss or damage, however we recommend you consider taking out Third Party Public Liability Insurance to cover for other events.

Third Party Public Liability Insurance:

This policy is designed to protect you from claims made against you by others for Property Loss, Accidental Death, Bodily Injury or Illness to them caused by (or as a result of) your negligence.  We recommend Oceanic Marine Risks and applications can be made online through this link.

Damage Waiver Insurance:

We will request payment of a Damage Waiver being one of the following a $250.00, $350.00, $450.00 or $550.00 per charter. This is non-refundable and covers minor loss and damaged/lost items on the vessel. A security bond of $550.00, except the Cumberland 46, Maestro 37, Dufour 56, Seawind 1160.3 Lite, Lagoon 450 and Catana Bali 4.3/4.3 Luxe which is $2000 and the Lagoon 421, Seawind 1260 and Catana Bali 4.0 which is $1000, is authorised on your credit card on your arrival to our office. If the vessel is returned with no loss or damage, the authorisation is released within 7 days completion of your charter.

The security bond covers for insurable incidents. *Please refer to clause 3.3 and 3.4 in your Charter Agreement. Also payable on arrival is a Marine Park Fee (reef tax) of $32.00 per person per charter (includes an $12.50 admin fee).
