  • Looking for Yacht or Motorboat Charter Excess/Security Deposit Waiver? Topsail can help.

    Monday, 18 August 2014

    When hiring or chartering a boat you may be required to pay an excess or security deposit – this means that should the vessel suffer damage or theft whilst in your care, you will lose your deposit. Yacht Charter Excess Waiver cover is an additional cover that protects you from these costs, which can be thousands of pounds.

    Usually, in the event of a claim, you would pay the excess to the Charter company and their insurance would cover the rest of the costs, however if our Excess Waiver cover is in place you would not have to pay anything other than the standard travel policy excess.
