The Travelers Marine Construction program can be customized to fit each contractor’s needs by combining key marine and non-marine coverages. Some of the available coverages include:

·       Marine General Liability – coverage for products and completed operations liability for work performed from watercraft

·       Marine Contractors Liability – coverage for property damage to marine structures under construction while in the insured’s care, custody or control

·       Bumbershoot – providing excess liability protection over both marine and non-marine coverages, including auto, and general and employer’s liability
