Aon and Nautor’s Swan side by side in the protection of the yachts
Tuesday, April 2, 2019 2:39 PM
Aon and Nautor's Swan announce that they have entered into a partnership to offer Swan yacht owners Aon's advice on identifying the major risks to which these iconic yachts are exposed and the best insurance solutions to mitigate and cover the risks identified as most likely and most damaging.
Aon, the leading group in Italy and worldwide in risk and human resources consulting in insurance and reinsurance intermediation, has a consolidated expertise in the recreational boating insurance market, with a division dedicated to boating based in Ancona. As a 360° risk manager, it will offer an ad hoc consultancy service, analysing the different risk scenarios according to the type of boat and its intended use, and the relative insurance coverage for the best mitigation of the risks identified. Moreover, "tailor-made" advice is becoming increasingly important, given the growing number of unpredictable catastrophic events, such as natural ones, resulting from adverse weather conditions.
Aon will also provide a 24-hour service to shipowners, 365 days a year, with the assistance of specialised experts. The insurance covers a multitude of accidents, including: those in the course of navigation/racing, during storage in the water and on land, from impact/collision/incandlement/sinking, fire/robbery, earthquakes/lightness/natural disasters, malicious or vandalism acts/theft, hidden defects, assistance and rescue/removal of the wreck.
Giovanni Pomati, CEO of Nautor's Swan Group, commented: "We are pleased and proud to have among our partners the Aon Group, a world leader in the provision of consulting services in the field of risk management. This new collaboration was born to meet the needs and desires of our owners offering, thanks to Aon, a highly qualified and diversified service for the boats that are part of our three product lines: Maxi Yachts, Swan Yachts and ClubSwan Yachts."
Andrea Parisi, CEO and General Manager of Aon in Italy commented: "We are very proud to have partnered with Nautor's Swan, a company that has been at the forefront of sailing for over 50 years, both in terms of performance and quality, internationally recognised for its iconic Swan yachts. Preserving these "jewels of the sea" from the occurrence of any adverse events, is a professional commitment for those who love sailing and has an importance directly proportional to their value. Aon has long been close to the nautical and sailing world, with which it shares the technical, tactical and sudden situations management, skills of the real risk managers we are.”
