Tight Yacht Insurance Market. Part 2
A second reason boat insurance premiums are on the rise is that yacht insurance is a costly line of business to write. This is because underwriters, claims adjusters, and surveyors all need to know boats, insurance contracts and be familiar with jurisdictional issues that arise as yachts cruise around the globe. And lastly increases in loss frequency & severity due to damage from hurricanes, lighting strikes, groundings, fires and litigation have affected the bottom line for yacht insurers.
