Frequently Asked Questions

Any vessel that is over six metres in length and any vessel, irrespective of size, that is mechanically propelled must have, as a minimum requirement in Gibraltar, cover for third party liability.

Argus are one of a few insurers in Gibraltar who handle all claims locally. Our experienced claims team is supported by a carefully selected, network of surveyors and repairers. Decisions are made swiftly, and locally, and are backed by the Argus Customer Charter. Please feel free to complete a claim form.

If the vessel is over 12 years old, we would require an "out of water" survey with a surveyor of your choice. We would be happy to provide details of qualified surveyors operating locally. Otherwise, no survey is required if the boat is in sound, seaworthy condition.

The standard policy covers third-party liabilities of £250,000 but coverage can be arranged for higher limits where necessary.

It is similar to a motor policy in the sense that it can be arranged to cover damage to your boat, as well as protecting your liabilities to third parties against damage or injury, for which you were responsible. Coverage can be tailored to your individual needs; and we would be pleased to provide further details.
