Croatia is one of the most popular destinations chosen for summer holidays. No wonder, the Adriatic coast delights visitors with beautiful beaches, crystal waters, good weather conditions and numerous attractions. An undoubted advantage of Croatia is its atmospheric cities with rich architecture, such as Split, Dubrovnik, Sibenik, Kastela, which can be easily reached during a cruise on the Adriatic Sea.
When renting a motor yacht in Croatia, you can choose luxury boats without crew (bareboat) if the guest has a valid motorboat licence. To make your sea voyage safer and more comfortable, it is worth opting for skipper’s liability insurance. In this way, unpleasant situations can be avoided in the event of dangerous incidents during the cruise.
Skipper – what does he do?
Skipper is the term used to refer to the captain of small and medium-sized boats. To become a skipper, you need to learn how to operate a yacht and gain the necessary experience at sea. The skipper is responsible for the voyage, dealing with weather monitoring and anchoring the yacht.
Yacht insurance – skipper’s liability insurance
When going on a sea trip with a hired motor yacht, it is worth taking out skipper’s liability insurance. The policy will protect you against various incidents and damages that can occur while steering rented yachts at sea. These include:
- any damage to the rented boat (including that caused by negligence),
- covering the costs of hotel accommodation and travel to the charter base in the event of cancellation of the cruise due to damage to the yacht making it impossible to return,
- deposit in case of seizure of the yacht in a foreign port,
- claims by the yacht owner in connection with damage to the boat,
- claims against the skipper.
Skipper’s liability insurance – why is it worth it?
What are the benefits of taking out skipper’s liability insurance? Most of all, it provides protection against material, financial and personal damage (destruction of personal belongings, bodily injury, protection against theft of property, etc.).
The policy protects against unjustified claims. It also covers damage caused while sailing and using the water equipment available on the motor yacht. Those looking for insurance can opt for skipper’s third-party liability insurance from a recommended company: EIS.
