Seacurus specialises in the design and implementation of solutions that protect participants in the marine industry from events that could negatively impact their balance sheets; such events might be a credit default, a hijacking, a charter party cancellation, or disruption to a voyage due to a political event.

Why work with us

As a specialist marine insurance broker, we continue to develop and deliver bespoke insurance solutions including charterers' default. In 2010 we established the first delegated underwriting binding authority for marine kidnap and ransom insurance, and in September 2011 became an approved Lloyd's coverholder.
