What makes marine electronics insurance important?

Electronic equipment is the heart of the ship. They serve a wide range of functions and a comfort plus, which is also of great importance in commercial shipping today. Ship electronics also offer the shipping company or the ship owner and its crew solid protection: the functioning of the electronic systems and devices on board is important for safe ship operation. It is also the proper functioning of the ship's electronics that protects the shipping company from costly failures caused by technical problems which could affect the ability to deliver and make customers displeased. Conclusion: The seamlessly functioning on-board electronics is the key - and it is our motto as an underwriter to consider electronic equipment in a comprehensive insurance solution.

Who benefits from marine electronics insurance?

All ships in commercial shipping do, because in the modern age, every ship incorporates electronic equipment. Both the ship owner with the small fleet and the established shipping company benefit significantly if the ship's electrical system is professionally and, in particular, individually secured. It is our task as an underwriting agent to professionally advise our partners from the brokerage sector in this context and to work with them to find the perfect insurance concept for the customer.
