Public liability insurance
Solent Rib Charter carry high quality public liability and employer liability insurance. This cover extends to Rib passengers although please note that passengers do not include those 'working' such as photographers, race officers, journalists, surveyors, engineers, divers etc.
If your journey on a Rib involves undertaking any form of paid work and potentially even unpaid work, then you are unlikely to be covered by conventional 'passenger' insurance. SRC have a seperate full commercial policy that covers everybody on a boat for any reason.
The SRC insurance cover extends to the whole fleet. You can be certain that the cover for your event is complete. On the rare occassions when boats are contracted in by SRC, they are either added to the SRC policy or insurance documents are checked for suitability.
For bareboats, you will be asked about your qualifications, experience and local knowledge to help build a picture of your suitability for insurance cover. It is unlikely that cover will be available to anybody under twenty five unless in exceptional circumstances. It is not possible to buy additional cover similar to hire car 'collision damage waiver'.
We are perhaps a little fussier than many about operating within the letter of the law thus safeguarding the likelihood of a claim being settled in the unlikely event of something going wrong!
Full details of our insurance cover are available on request.
Solent Rib Charter own a fleet of Ribs available for Bareboat Rib hire or Bareboat Rib charter (without a skipper) anywhere in the UK or Europe.
