It's unlikely your yacht is a standalone asset - it's part of a lifestyle, which may involve regular travel, properties in a range of locations, and a wide range of luxury assets and collections. So it makes sense to work with an insurance adviser who can make sense of all your personal insurance, pulling everything together into a smart portfolio of protection to keep you and your family safe from financial and administrative impact when the worst happens.
...Your machinery breaks down – is any consequential damage covered?
...A water leak from hotel services causes interior damage?
...You need towage and the vessel is rendered ‘not under command’ - are emergency expenses covered?
...Crew are injured and you’re deemed negligent as owner of the work place?
...The vessel is out of action after an accident – can you claim for lost charters?
...Your tanks leak and you're fined for water pollution or a spill fllowing a collision?
...You encounter a contract dispute over the sale of your vessel?
The La Playa Marine Team is on hand with answers and solutions.
But it's not just about yachts. As Private Client experts, we know there's a certain fluidity to your lifestyle - and our wraparound care can make sense of all your personal insurance, pulling together yachts, prestige cars, homes and collections policies into an easy-to-manage portfolio.
La Playa is a registered broker at Lloyd's of London, an elite status which gives us direct access to the world's premier specialist insurance market.
Our Marine team has decades of experience in yacht insurance – we can guide you through the decision-making process, providing personalized risk advice and protecting your precious downtime. We provide a human face to make sense of marine insurance – real people who work with you at your pace, providing as much (or as little) detail as you wish.
But what makes us unusual is our “portfolio” approach, allowing you to combine your marine, home and vehicle insurance needs. This is no “bolt-on”: by streamlining specialist marine insurance with high net worth home and motor cover, we present an overall more attractive risk package to the insurer. This can mean better rates and time savings - just one payment and a single policy anniversary, minimising the possibilities for gaps in cover and maximising your peace of mind.
