For the last 130 years, the UK Defence Club has built a reputation for superior maritime legal costs insurance. As an independent specialist provider, we provide our Members with comprehensive cover and ensure that they have access to advice and assistance in any jurisdiction, anywhere in the world.
Unlike our international competitors, our cover is not part of your P&I cover. We are focused solely on the provision of legal costs insurance to shipowners and operators. Our independence has a number of advantages:
Since 2015, our Members have benefited from Continuity Credits. Members with three and five years of entry benefit from premium reductions, with an additional discount for those Members entering their entire fleet with the Club.
At the 2021 renewal Continuity Credits are being given to those Members who have been with the Club for a complete policy year applied as follows:
2% for Members who have had an entry for 3 or 4 consecutive policy years;
3% for those Members having had an entry for 5 or more consecutive policy years;
an additional discount of 2.5% is available to those Members entering their entire fleet with the Club.
The application of Continuity Credits is reviewed by the UKDC Board on an annual basis at its November Board meeting.
