This is the vision that has inspired the launch of Crewsure Marine, a composite insurance policy paid for by the Employer and which provides insurance personally to seafarers for medical care, personal accident, loss or delay of baggage, and includes the cost of repatriation in the case of abandonment as required under MLC.


Crewsure Insurances are underwritten by Globality Health and KA Köln.Assekuranz Agentur GmbH on behalf of Great Lakes Reinsurance (UK) PLC – all part of Munich Re Insurance and Reinsurance Companies with over 47,000 staff. Munich Re's premium income for the year 2011 was around Euro 50 billion.
