Project Description

Hull & Machinery claims

When problems of hull and machinery on board ships are present, our captains and chief engineers can identify the causes and consequences, partial and total losses, which arise in the machinery, equipment or on the hull of ships, boats, yachts and generally in any embarkation of navigation.

Our surveyors have experience in a broad range of disciplines. They can advise and conduct inspections into a number of areas to assist with insurance and damage claims and litigation for marine equipment.

Following any case of hull or machinery damage e.g. due to collision or grounding, the ship owner manager’s insurance department will normally immediately inform via the broker, the lead hull and machinery insurer. The lead underwriter will then instruct a surveyor to ascertain the nature, cause and extent of damage, necessary repair and fair and reasonable cost thereof.
