Extended Third-Party Insurance for private Skippers
As a skipper of a foreign yacht you will be shown the greatest confidence by the crew and the yacht owner. Both, your competence as well as your sense of responsibility are the prerequisite for the job.
While others relax and enjoy the cruise, you must always be concentrated or remain witted. Cool-headed you need to make quick decisions in precarious situations, which can also end up determinded in many situations.
The lake has sometimes its own laws, but also human errors by third parties can not be influenced by the responsible skipper.
Boats usually have liability insurances. Nevertheless, it often happens that a yacht liability or comprehensive insurance does not pay in certain cases or are inadequate amounts of coverage or the scope of the contract. To be on the safe side, we recommend that you take an extended skipper liability insurance from the group of EIS charter insurance. From our own experience we know what the skipper and his crew in the worst case can come during the charter trips.
