Charter with no worries with Pantaenius

SKIPPER Liability

The yearly cover for the Skipper

Benefit from our most comprehensive insurance cover of all time. The Pantaenius yacht conditions based on our new all-risks cover provide hull insurance, liability insurance and passenger insurance as a package or separately. Clearly defined exclusions ensure the highest degree of transparency.

Our charter packages can be customised to the requirements of your trip. Buy your desired combination of skipper's liability insurance, cancellation insurance, deposit insurance and accident insurance directly online. The above can now be arranged at even shorter notice.

As a skipper, you are automatically liable for damage sustained when using someone else's yacht. Our skipper liability insurance protects you and your assets if you are not covered by the liability insurance of the yacht itself. In the case of gross negligence, damage to the yacht led by the skipper is also insured.





Our portfolio of insurance products features solutions for every situation, customised to your needs and usage habits, ensuring you are covered against the risks and leaving you to enjoy your vessel with peace of mind. In addition to the obligatory liability insurance and hull insurance, Pantaenius recommends that all owners of motor yachts or sail yachts take out passenger insurance. Pantaenius also offers a number of additional insurance products, such as skipper liability insurance or total loss insurance.

Pantaenius sets the highest standards for a personal and competent service. In our call centres, you will find passionate water sports enthusiasts, a team of staff who are at home in the world of sailing boats and motor boats themselves, helping  you to get back out on the water as quickly as possible following a claim. Pantaenius has a dedicated claims department and works together with independent valuers. An emergency hotline is available to our customers 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Whether you are in Switzerland, the Mediterranean or the Caribbean, Pantaenius not only has 12 branches in Europe, Australia and the USA, but also maintains an extensive international network. Our 35,000 contacts worldwide means that we can react quickly and efficiently, even in the most remote corners of the world.
