QBE Marine insurance

Cover for goods in transit, commercial hulls, carriers, pleasure craft and more.

Your marine clients are exposed to a wide range of risks. Whether they’re transporting goods, operating a commercial hull or private vessel, or providing marine services – they all need specialist cover.

Whatever their needs, our experts have the local and international expertise to design cover to meet them. Risk management advice is also part of the service – our Marine Specialty Risks unit will help your client understand their risks and how to protect themselves. They’ll also benefit from our proactive loss and claims management services.

You can access marine products, view transactions and monitor claims online through c.change. Pleasure Craft insurance is also available through Sunrise Exchange. For Cargo quotes and to place, manage and renew Cargo cover go to Cargo@QBE.
