Glossary of Marine Terms


A glossary of marine insurance and shipping terms to help you get across the complex marine terminology.

Marine insurance is a particularly specialist field, so we understand that you may not be across the intricacies of the terminology. 

If you're not sure what something means in our Marine Protect PDS or are confused on some wording, you can use our Glossary of Marine Terms. 

This handy tool explains international marine terms and is designed to be a reference in helping you speak the language of marine insurance - especially if you aren't an expert in the industry.
