Maritime Agency Expands Charter Boat Program to Include Small Boats

October 27, 2005

Maritime General Agency in Westbrook, Conn.has expanded its Charter Boat Program to target small charter and guide boats, ranging from 16’ to 25’.

The Small Boat Charter Program is in addition to Maritime General Agency’s existing Charter Boat Program, in which they write charter, sightseeing and excursion vessels that range from 6 to 18 passengers.

“We have seen increased requests from brokers seeking a reputable market for boats that are smaller than the typical 6 pack charters,” said Chris Pesce, managing partner. “Due to an increase in fuel prices and anglers seeking a more personal fishing experience, smaller charter boats are becoming more popular nationwide.”

Available coverage in Maritime General Agency’s charter boat program includes: hull on agreed value basis; machinery coverages; P & I up to $1 million (higher limits available where required by contracts with cruise lines); crew and Jones Act liability coverage; personal effects; fishing tackle; catch and sell coverage; war and terrorism coverage

The program is available in almost all states, including Hawaii and Alaska.

Maritime General Agency is the program manager for American Home, an AIG member company, for writing charter boats. Maritime General Agency also has programs for Private Pleasure Boats, Mega Yachts, Marinas, Yacht clubs and Boat Dealers.
