  • Integrated risk management

    Traditionally, assessing risk in the yacht market has been challenging because every yacht, crew and cruising pattern is different. But Burgess offers a unique approach.

    We work closely with owners and managing agents to devise a comprehensive risk management package, ensuring that preventative yacht operating policies and procedures are in place. This enables us to secure the most appropriate, cost-efficient, and comprehensive insurance solution for any yacht.

  • Policy updates and making a claim

    • An integrated team ensures no gap in cover. BYFS liaises constantly with our yacht managers regarding changes to the yacht and its day-to-day running. We ensure that underwriters are kept abreast of the yacht’s movements to prevent the yacht breaching a warrantee or condition that might affect its level of cover.
    • A strong claims advocate in the owner's camp. In the event of a claim, BYFS works closely with the yacht’s risk management structure to ensure a swift and fair processing of the claim. We liaise directly with the underwriters to supply all necessary information and keep the yacht ownership updated on the claim progression.
