Carina is a fixed premium facility, managed by Tindall Riley & Co Limited, trading as Carina Managers, offering P&I cover for owners and charterers of smaller ships up to 5,000 GT operating domestically and on inland water ways, worldwide.

Carina's policies provide cover up to US$ 500m and are backed by Lloyd’s A+ security.

Similar cover is available for charterers up to US$ 50m.

Legal defence cover is also available together with all the ancillary covers required by owners and charterers operating in this market.

The smaller ships market is a specialised field, distinct from the world of large ships trading internationally. Understanding the needs and demands of shipowners and charterers operating in this sector is essential. Carina is committed only to this market and is focused on delivering a tailored product to meet the needs of the Insured.
