As one of the London market’s leading marine brokers, our highly developed knowledge of the sector and reputation for innovation and collaboration has been built up over a century. 

Whilst blue water (or ocean-going) hull and liabilities have traditionally been Miller’s principle marine focus, we are now working closely with specialist markets to increase our focus on ‘shallow water’ green and brown water risks for vessels and craft found in coastal waters, navigable rivers and their estuaries.

Miller can handle the full range of covers, from primary protection and indemnity to high limit hull and machinery or excess liabilities.

We have access to underwriters that can replicate the traditional structure of domestic alternatives and also provide other more specialist required interests and complementary covers.

By packaging multiple interests, opportunities for economies of scale are provided for insureds and brokers alike.

Main areas of cover include:

  • Hull and machinery, including excess hull
  • Port risks
  • Disbursements and/or increased value
  • Primary and excess P&I, including crew, pollution and removal of wreck
  • War risks
  • Excess liabilities and/or bumbershoot (marine umbrella)

Vessels and craft considered in scope

Dedicated markets will consider a wide variety of vessels and craft that are owned, managed or operated worldwide, including but not limited to:

  • Tugs, barges and dredgers
  • Bunkering and product tankers
  • Offshore support vessels
  • Small general cargo vessels
  • Floating leisure facilities
  • Tourist and sightseeing craft
  • Buoys and pilot boats
  • Emergency response vessels
  • Research vessels
  • Floating drydocks
  • Historical ships
