What Does Ocean Marine Insurance Cover?
Ocean marine insurance provides coverages for several types of businesses engaged in maritime operations. It can protect manufacturers, distributors and vessel owners. Specific areas of coverage include:

It is not limited to ocean-going commercial vessels and may protect other watercrafts such as tugboats and barges. It may also cover other floating equipment and some fixed property, including offshore installations.
Ocean Marine Liability Coverage. Also known as protection and indemnity (P&I) coverage, this helps to cover the vessel owner’s liabilities to third parties that arise during the vessel’s operations.
