Risks covered

  • Crew managers, acting as principals, opt for standalone crew risk insurance to handle claims directly. They may be barred from co-insuring under owners’ P&I insurance, necessitating separate crew coverage.
  • Gard’s crew cover is developed for these situations, and responds to the traditional crew liabilities, including costs and expenses arising under a crew employment contract and/or collective bargaining agreements.

Other risks covered

  • Liability for other people on board
  • Diversion costs
  • Life salvage
  • Fines
  • Disinfection and quarantine expenses
  • Conditions: Crew manager must be contractually or legally liable in these cases.
