Gemini provides a specialist insurance for tow and voyage cover at delivery or break-up. Other one-off towage can be considered as well, such as a tow to a repair yard or for maintenance work.

Hull insurance will normally be cancelled when a vessel is on voyage for break-up, either under tow or by its own machinery. The Gemini cover is specifi cally designed for such voyages, but also for vessels being delivered before the ordinary Hull and Machinery cover is in place. A towage to a repair facility can also include a port risk cover during repairs.

In addition, the Gemini cover can include limited P&I risks and include both pollution liability as well as liability for the crew on board the vessel.

Gemini gives bespoke cover for risks and the leader, Canopius, has a wealth of experience to provide comprehensive and 'tailor made' cover for the assured. Any combination of any of the above covers can be created for our client's or member's requirements.


Helpline is offered to all clients 24/7 including free advice on technical, engineering and commercial matters. This will also provide a network of 600 correspondents worldwide who can assist locally with authorities, tug assistance, repairs or other matters.
