and Marine Insurance in the Bahamas
The use of aircraft as a means of transport is
increasing each year. The buyers of aviation insurance are large
commercial airlines, corporate or business aircraft owners,
private owners and charter services. Usually a comprehensive
policy is issued covering the aircraft itself (hull), the
liabilities to passengers and the liabilities to others.
Commercial Marine Policies relate to
three areas of risk, the hull, cargo and freight. The risks
against which these items may be insured are loss or damage (as
well as liability) caused by 'perils of the seas,' fire, theft,
collision and a wide range of other perils.
The Yacht and Pleasure Craft Policy came about as a
result of the increasing leisure use of small boats and private
yachts. The policy is comprehensive in style, covering a wide
range of perils including liabilities.
