What is Hull Coverage?

Hull insurance is a type of Ocean Marine coverage that covers damage to the ship, including its machinery and equipment. Ocean Marine is a broad term for insurance that covers the vessel or hull of a ship, the cargo, and legal liability for any negligence by the shipper or the carrier. It is one of the most important types of coverage, with many businesses relying on vessels and cargo for their profits. Hull covers ships from situations that may occur due to negligence related to the vessel’s operations or the false actions of the crew members or captain.

Marine Hull mainly covers types of damage related to ships used for commercial and private purposes, protecting against risks such as liability or physical damage.
