Hull Coverage

Cargo Coverage

Freight Insurance

Protection and Indemnity (P&I)

Implied Warranties that are not written in the contract, but carry the same value and weight are...

Seaworthiness: The vessel must be in seaworthy condition and not overloaded, and have a competent captain and crew

Conditions of Cargo
