A boat insurance proves a sense of responsibility

By tradition, a captain is responsible for himself, his ship and his crew. Therefore, every boat captain should also take out a solid boat insurance as fully comprehensive and liability insurance. In Germany the boat insurance is not a legal obligation. However, with all our professionalism and expertise we can only advise you to do so. In § 823 Section 1 BGB is regulated: "Whoever wilfully or negligently violates the life, body, health, freedom, property or any other right of another unlawfully, is obliged to compensate the other for the resulting damage". This means for you in concrete terms: If you cause damage to a third party with your boat, you are fully liable with your entire assets. It is better to take precautions right from the start!

Comprehensive organization - also for private customers

We at the HKVA are not only specialised in competently protecting you and your ship against financial shoals. We also offer a first-class organization around the perfect insurance protection. This starts with our boat insurance calculator, which filters out the best possible offers for you individually. We also offer you well thought-out services as well as professional advice and tips. This also includes advising boat owners to let us know when they sell their boat, because we will not receive an automatic message when they deregister, register or change their boat. The pleasure craft comprehensive insurance must be cancelled upon presentation of the purchase contract, otherwise it will be transferred to the buyer of the boat. The boat liability insurance expires automatically. This is important for you to have complete insurance protection!

Our speciality is shipping. The HKVA has been insuring ships of all kinds for decades.
