Financial Strengths Ratings
Marine Builders Risk covers the building of ocean-going vessels in specialised yards worldwide. Our Marine Builders Risk appetite effectively emulates our Marine Hull strategy and we look to deploy our capital against a traditional, long-established array of yards throughout Europe and the U.S.
Marine Hull and Total Loss is generally written on a direct basis and covers marine risks on a worldwide basis, primarily for physical damage. In Marine Hull, Lancashire targets larger, higher quality fleets with newer tonnage, which typically outperforms older tonnage, as well as liquid natural gas tankers, cruise lines and high-profile market risks.
Marine War is direct insurance of loss of vessels from war, piracy or terrorist attack and is written packaged together with the Hull exposures, or as a standalone placement.
We are a market leader in this segment and maintain our strict guidelines in supporting modern assets for Marine and Energy with reputable finance houses through our key market producers.
Marine P&I includes the reinsurance of the IGPIA and covers a select number of non-poolable market facilities.

The Marine book in Lancashire Syndicates is written by the main Lancashire Marine underwriting team and follows a similar philosophy in terms of risk selection, albeit to fit the Lloyd's market.
The business profile consists of a blend of our core classes of Marine Hull, IV, Excess Hull, Builder Risk and Marine Liabilities. The typical vessel types match the Group's preferred tonnage of gas, cruise and other specialist vessels.
