In my experience the charter company will offer deposit insurance at a fee.

The question is a little vague...are you asking about the deposit on your charter before you pay for your trip or the damage waiver for while you're on your charter?

chrondi is an unknown quantity at this point
He is clear enough: he doesn't want to lose his deposit because of boat damage. Damage waiver clauses are not so often practiced in Greece. I live in Belgium and my sailing club arranges the extra damage waiver insurance with our club general activities insurer whenever I charter in Greece with a crew of club members. It costs 3% of the charter fee and it is not linked with the guarantee. I also know that in the Netherlands we pay for the waiver extra clause 20 euro for a ten-meter yacht charter.

In that case, seems like it depends from who you charter. With Sunsail, they take a deposit (actually a swipe of your credit card that doesn't get processed) and you pay a small amount for the damage waiver. The deposit acts as a deductible if there is any damage to your charter. You have the option of paying a higher cost for the damage waiver with a smaller deductible, but most pay less figuring that they won't incur any damage.
