Aon Offers Strong Insurance Support to Swan Owners
Aon’s office in Italy has teamed up with Nautor’s Swan to offer specialised insurance advice to Swan sailing yacht owners in Europe.
Aon has entered into a partnership with Nautor’s Swan to offer Swan yacht owners advice on identifying the major risks to which the iconic yachts are exposed, as well as insurance solutions to mitigate and cover the risks identified as most likely and most damaging.
Aon, a worldwide leader in risk and human resources consulting in insurance and reinsurance intermediation, has strong expertise in the recreational boating insurance market, with a dedicated division based in Ancona, Italy.
Giovanni Pomati, CEO of Nautor’s Swan Group, said: “We are pleased and proud to have among our partners the Aon Group, a world leader in the provision of consulting services in the field of risk management.
“This new collaboration was born to meet the needs and desires of our owners offering, thanks to Aon, a highly qualified and diversified service for the boats that are part of our three product lines: Maxi Yachts, Swan Yachts and ClubSwan Yachts.”
Aon will offer an ad hoc consultancy service, analysing the different risk scenarios according to the type of boat and its intended use, and the relative insurance coverage for the best mitigation of the risks identified.
Moreover, tailor-made advice is increasingly important, given the growing number of unpredictable catastrophic events, such as natural ones, resulting from adverse weather conditions. Aon will also provide a 24-hour service to ship owners, 365 days a year, with the assistance of specialised experts.
Andrea Parisi, CEO and General Manager of Aon in Italy, said: “We are very proud to have partnered with Nautor’s Swan, a company that has been at the forefront of sailing for over 50 years.
“Aon has long been close to the nautical and sailing world. Preserving these ‘jewels of the sea’ from the occurrence of any adverse events is a professional commitment for those who love sailing and has an importance directly proportional to their value.”
Founded in Finland in 1966, Nautor’s Swan is renowned for building top-quality performance sailing yachts and today offers models in three lines: Swan Yachts (48, 54, 60, 65, 78), Maxi Swan Yachts (98, 120) and ClubSwan Yachts (36, 50, 125).
