    Among the common misconception among yacht owners is the lack of awareness. Most of the owners believe, it is as simple as buying a car insurance while completely ignoring the multi-faceted requirements. There has also been a concern among insurance companies that the yacht owners often don’t read the entire policy.This often results in a lot of confusion and argument in the event of insurance claim. A lot of yacht insurance policies, globally are purchased by word of mouth.




    Yachts are becomingly increasingly popular, and are an international status symbol that many aspire to own. Yacht insurance is accordingly a growing market. In most of the cases it’s the accidents followed by fire mishaps which result in an insurance claim. 


    In 2017, there were about ~750 yachts on order which has remained more or less constant in the past 5 years. Expedition yachts have continued their growth story in recent years whereas the sail yachts have been declining. As of May 2018, ~60% of yachts are made to order whereas the rest are speculative.


    In the superyacht segment,as of Feb 2021, ~89% of global Superyacht fleet is under 50M in length and average present market value is $16.2 Million


    The superyacht insurance market had excess capacity which drove down prices. Combined with losses due to natural disasters such as Hurricane Irma and Maria , the market changed rapidly with increasing premiums and the exit of multiple players



    US is still the largest market worldwide, yacht manufacturers are now also investing in new markets globally, especially in Asia. The healthy economy outlook of US is expected to become even better and Russian market tiding over recession will also provide a boost to this market. 


    Marine tourism and peer to peer boat rental will also play a key role in deciding the outlook of this market over the next few years. Super yachts occupy a sizable chunk of this market by value, since their average cost is roughly 10-15 times of an average 26` boat. The travel location and number of crews on a superyacht has always had a major role in determining the premium of insurance policy.


    Boats might seem an odd choice for the peer-to-peer boat rental market but there’s a growing interest in this space. They use it to pay off any debts related to boat purchase and there is a growing opportunity to rent them. Insurance and other guarantees are necessary of course, and it’s thanks to major insurance players that the boat owners are able to insure up to a million dollars in liability coverage, for the company to reassure any frisky boat owners or users.


    The global yacht insurance market size is estimated at ~$8.4 Billion in 2021, growing at 4% CAGR till 2026
