Located in Fort Lauderdale, the new location houses Suisscourtage's insurance brands OnlyYacht, OnlyYard and OnlyJet.
Suisscourtage, a subsidiary of Monaco-based Pastor Group, has announced the opening of its first US office. Located in Fort Lauderdale, the new location houses the company’s Only insurance brands consisting of OnlyYacht, OnlyYard and OnlyJet.
Headquartered in Monaco with offices in key global yachting, aviation and wealth hubs, the group has been operating as an independent insurance broker for more than 25 years.
The new location in Fort Lauderdale joins the firms’ network of offices in Antibes, London, Luxembourg, Monaco, Rotterdam and Viareggio.
Suisscourtage advises and assists high-net-worth private clients on all insurance needs offering made to measure solutions for yachts, private aircraft and other luxury assets.
“Since our opening, we already are seeing a need being filled in this market,” says Vincent Huens de Brouwer, executive director of OnlyYacht US.
“As an independent Lloyd’s broker, we have direct access to the world’s largest insurance market which gives us the opportunity to place and renew our client’s policies at constantly improving terms and rates. This direct access is also the guarantee of high confidentiality appreciated by our clients,” he adds.
OnlyYacht provides superyacht and crew insurance protection, including superyacht loss or damage, liability protection, crew and guest welfare and claim services.
The company says it currently insures 370 yachts including some of the largest superyachts in the world, more than 3,000 active crew members, and protects more than $6 billion of assets.
OnlyYard covers shipyards and owners against risk of physical damage to superyachts under construction. OnlyJet insures private aircraft for damage to hull, liability to third parties and injury to crew and passengers.
The Pastor Group spans construction, real estate, the restaurant industry and most notably insurance through Suisscourtage Assurances, an independent insurance broker servicing international clientele since 1988.
