Marine: Cargo, Hull, Liability

Led by Simon Schnorr, a recognised market leader, StarStone has an experienced team of Marine underwriters operating across Lloyd’s, the London market and Continental Europe.

In line with StarStone’s overall ambition to add value for insureds through a flexible and technical approach to risk, the StarStone Marine practice offers differentiated products that meet the changing needs of today’s globalised market, providing bespoke solutions across various Marine lines either on a standalone basis or within multiline packages.


We provide a broad range of Marine and Energy Liability products to Ship Owners, Cargo Owners, Charterers and those Assureds involved in oil, gas and sulphur exploration, drilling and production in the field, both offshore and onshore.

We provide coverage for both physical damage and liabilities arising from war, terrorism, strikes, riots, civil commotions and piracy on a standalone basis. We also insure the consequences of arrest or detainment as a result of drugs, illegal munitions, or other smuggled goods being found on board a vessel.

We provide insurance for goods in transit by sea, land or air including storage during the ordinary course of transit. We also provide protection for loss of or damage to project cargoes and subsequent DSU/Consequential loss.

We provide cover for Hull all Risks, Increased Value, Mortgagees Interest and Builders Risks.

We provide a full range of insurance coverage to the transport and logistics sectors. We offer combined property and liability policies for Port Authorities and Terminal Operators and liability protections for Freight Forwarders, Stevedores, Wharfingers, Ships Agents and Logistics companies.
