Water Craft Insurance


Water craft insurance from Compendium is designed to give owners of small craft supreme peace of mind. Coverage is thorough and easy to make even more comprehensive thanks to a list of special policy extensions. Enjoy sun, sea and surf – we have you covered!

Water craft / Small craft insurance covers any vessel meaning a pleasure craft having a maximum designed speed of one hundred (100) kph specified in the schedule. This comprises the hull, superstructure, fittings, machinery, engines, motors, boats, gear and equipment that would usually be sold as one unit. The trailer needs to be specified in the schedule.

Calculating the sum insured: The current purchase price of a new vessel of the same or a similar model if the vessel is less than 4 years old must be noted as the sum insured. Alternatively, the current market value if the vessel is older than 4 years, or the limit of indemnity shown in the schedule will be paid out, whichever is the lesser.

Important note: Cover applies to any body of water within Southern Africa, and extends as far as 12 nautical miles from the coast of South Africa, Namibia and Mozambique.

Our boat insurance coverage includes:

• Accident
• Fire, lightning, explosion, earthquake, volcanic eruption
• Malicious acts
• Outboard motor damage or loss, provided it is securely fastened to the vessel
• Negligence of any person
• Theft or attempted theft including machinery, outboard motors, gear or equipment if stolen with the vessel or following forcible or violent entry into or exit from the vessel or place of storage.
