We are an international team of reputable, dedicated and knowledgeable marine insurance professionals, proud of delivering high quality insurance products and advisory services to companies that charter vessels to carry cargo by sea.

With the creation of the Charterers P&I Club in London in 1986, we set up the first vehicle dedicated exclusively to charterers and rapidly established ourselves as a respected market leader. Since then we have consolidated this position and our international team of maritime professionals can offer clients unrivalled levels of expertise and experience in this specialised and technical field. This formidable resource is backed up by an insurance policy underwritten by one of the world’s largest insurance companies, with a market-leading financial rating.

Our comprehensive charterers’ liability cover and freight demurrage and defence insurance are available to all charterers and traders. Currently, the Club has insured over 400 charterers and 16,000 vessels. Our client pool includes clients from large shipping companies and cargo interests who might only have a few requirements for a handful of fixtures per annum.

THE CHARTERERS P&I CLUB

CLAIM EXAMPLES

Exclusively for Charterers

divider

The shipping industry operates in a liability environment. These days, it has become more legislative thanks to the increasing amount of regulations on pollution and safety.

Charterers are exposed to different risks, either through contractual indemnities and liabilities or to other third parties. For these reasons, Charterers P&I as part of the MECO Group offer liability insurance exclusively for charterers.
