Marine Insurance

Newfoundland Commercial Marine Insurance

Newfoundland was founded on the basis of the fishery. It was originally settled to land and prepare fish for the voyage back to the old world. Eventually many of the settlers made it their home. The old world then became a trading partner. As trade developed so did the need for insuring the goods that were sent back across the ocean.

Ocean Marine Insurance is perhaps the oldest type of insurance coverage in the world. Today’s insurance coverage includes much more than indemnity for any losses that take place on an international voyage. It applies to coverage in coastal waters or the high seas. It is designed primarily to provide coverage for the vessel or the hull of the ship, freight, cargo and liability that occur during operation of your vessel.

As fish merchants, the Crosbie family recognized the need to insure the boats and cargo. This realization led them to brokering insurance for other merchants. Today in Newfoundland, when people talk about Marine Insurance they are generally referring to Fishing Boats/Trawlers being insured. It’s much more than that, there are many other types of vessels that need insurance.
