Loss of Hire

Ship in yard undergoing repairs

Loss of Hire Insurance covers loss of income following a physical damage to the vessel, recoverable from the underlying hull & machinery cover.

This enables ship owners to protect their income and cash flow in the event of an emergency.

Norwegian Hull Club is one of the largest providers of Loss of Hire insurance worldwide, usually covering 100% of the risk as Claims Leader, predominantly on standard conditions, cf. Chapter 16 of the Nordic Marine Insurance Plan.

Loss of Hire insurance also covers loss of income caused by incidents such as:

  • Stranding of the vessel
  • Physical obstruction (other than ice) preventing the vessel from leaving port or similar limited area
  • Salvage or removal of damaged cargo
  • Events giving rise to an allowance in General Average
