How can we help you?

Exclusively focused on Charterers Liability insurance

Why Charterama?

No conflict of interest

Charterers Liability claims are ALWAYS between Shipowners and Charterers. As opposed to most other providers we are exclusively underwriting Charterers Liability and NO Owners P&I.

Charterers liability is our core business

In many occasions charterers liability is offered as a side product of the core business. Charterama offers charterers liability as their exclusive business. We are fully committed to the Charterers business.


Our senior staff has long term experience in Charterers Liability and all have over 15 years experience in Charterers Liability insurance. But also many years experience on board ships and commodity trade.
