Re: Types of insurance

Oh yeah if the capt is found negligent and has some worth you can bet the insurance company will go after him. It is rare though and most yacht claims are small even a CTL when compared to commercial loss. I am sure there are cases where it has happened more likely with loss of life. I am not aware of a specific liability insurance for captains such as error and omission for a consultant (or surveyor.) You bring up some good points but are reaching the limits of my knowledge of marine law lol
