Productions that use aircraft, boats and ammunition including guns and blanks are also excluded from these programs. We do however have a special program available at a higher price that would cover the above restrictions.
If you are shooting on a boat, barge, platform, marina, dock, wharf or pier, our Movie Boat Insurance provides a comprehensive insurance program to cover marine property like hull and machinery. It also protects your production against any liability including Charterer's Legal Liability, Towers Liability, Wharfinger's Liability, and other excess liability.
