The Shipowners’ Club has in-depth knowledge of the risks and liabilities you face when operating your fleet, borne from over 160 years of experience in providing Protection and Indemnity (P&I) cover, Legal Assistance and Defence cover and associated insurances.

As market leader, we insure over 32,000 small and specialist vessels across the globe. Every year, 95% of our members choose to stay with us, and our top 25 members hold an average of 24 years’ continuous entry; testament to our ability to serve Members’ best interests and respond to changing needs.

We have a wide spread of members across a range of vessel types, operating sectors and geographical areas. This diversification delivers stability, allowing us to enjoy a strong balance sheet and A-rated financial security from A. M. Best and Standard & Poor’s.

Referred to as a P&I Club, Shipowners’ is one of thirteen Clubs which make up the International Group, insuring over 90% of the world’s tonnage.
