Day Sailing Yachts
Comparatively small in size but certainly not small on fun, these yachts are perfect for a relaxing day of cruising your favorite lake, harbor, or coastline. Typically these vessels are not designed for an overnight journey.
While you may not be spending weeks at sea in these yachts, insurance is still necessary to protect your investment from negligent boaters and other hazards.
A step up in size and price from the day sailing yachts, these yachts often check in at under 30 ft (9.5 m) in length. They are capable of operating in shallow waters and can potentially be safely beached in falling tides.
Weekend yacht insurance is important as these vessels can stay on the water with their crew for 2 to 3 days — hence the name “weekender” — which brings owners great relaxation and memories but also exposes the yacht to more potential hazards than simple day sailing or cruising.
The cruising yachts are perhaps the most common privately owned and operated type of large vessel. Typically ranging up to 45ft (7 to 14m) in length, they can be found in a wide variety of designs depending on the owner and manufacturer.
A cruising yacht often represents a significant financial investment for its owner, making a quality yacht insurance policy of paramount importance. These ships can safely undertake long voyages, even for thousands of miles, and therefore are exposed to a number of different risks and threats.
Our yacht experts at Global Marine can help you find a yacht insurance policy that properly insures your cruising yacht. We’ll help you determine, by looking at the design and intended use of your yacht, what type of coverage you’ll need to sail or cruise at ease.
Typically measuring 80 feet (25 meters) or longer, luxury yachts offer an astonishing range of modern conveniences and are capable of travelling for extremely long periods at sea.
For those in position to own a luxury or mega yacht, insurance is absolutely necessary. These yachts represent a tremendous financial investment and need to be protected from a wide variety of potential hazards depending on where they will be navigated. Global Marine can help you quote the most comprehensive, reliable mega yacht insurance package available for your investment.
