About Shoreline

Shoreline’s innovative solutions meet pressing, specialist marine insurance needs. Working alongside the shipping community and global marine insurance brokers, and as a satellite resource for the International Group of P&I (IG) Clubs, we find answers to complex insurance challenges.

For over two decades, we have been creating tailor-made solutions to specific certification or coverage challenges, always with a focus on quality. Today, our support continues to complement the cover provided by P&I Clubs, addressing the complexities of maritime conventions, regulations and laws, and the evolving risk challenges of modern operations. We foresee, and respond to, the needs of shipowners and operators. We are there to support the IG whenever required. Tomorrow, we will carry on placing innovation, service and value at the center of everything we do.
