We handled a claim for the owner of a known luxury yacht under a marine insurance policy, following damage to the yacht during its ocean crossing.
The insurance policy was subject to English law and to the jurisdiction of the English courts.
The claim raised a number of evidential issues in relation to the damage that was suffered, including the legal question whether certain provisions under the policy exempted the insurers from paying under it.
The claim was eventually resolved amicably, without the need for it to proceed to a court judgment.
We are well-versed in claims under hull & machinery policies, war risk policies, cargo insurance policies and other marine insurance contracts. If you have a marine insurance claim, feel free to reach out to us – we are just a call away.
