Riva’s elegantly styled models – with hulls and superstructures made of fine mahogany and fitted with flashing chrome fittings and instruments – are sought-after luxury goods worldwide. In the event of damage, Riva yacht owners should be well insured, because damage to the paintwork and scratches on these noble runabouts can happen quickly and are particularly annoying. 

BAVARIA AG has been the leading insurance partner for Riva yacht owners in Europe for many years. Among other things, BAVARIA AG’s involvement in the Riva clubs of France, Germany and Italy, as well as their events, creates a steadily growing customer base that appreciates BAVARIA AG’s excellent service.

Versicherungen für klassische Riva Yachten

Comprehensive insurance

24/7 all-round protection

BAVARIA AG offers transparent and reputable conditions and works exclusively with German insurers. With us, a competent contact person always answers the phone, there are no waiting times and advice is always given by experts in their field. With BAVARIA AG you can insure your yacht with complete peace of mind.

Fixed rate

The value of the yacht is predetermined and will be compensated in the event of a total loss. This value applies for the entire term of the contract.

All risks cover

The best possible protection without any question. Everything that is not expressly excluded is covered here. In addition, there is no reversal of the burden of proof; the insurer is obliged to provide evidence in the event of a claim.

No deductions “New for old”

With BAVARIA AG, there are no deductions for new parts to be purchased. No current value is deducted.

Recovery and wreck removal

Whether ordered by the authorities or not – salvage and wreck removal are included in the BAVARIA AG insurance free of charge.

Paint, scratch and scuff damage also insured

Unfortunately, these damages happen quite quickly and are excluded by many providers. With BAVARIA AG, they are also insured.

Construction and material defects also insured

This recurring annoyance is also insured with us, provided that no claims can be made against the manufacturer. BAVARIA AG can provide supportive advice here as part of its customer service.

24/7 claims service

In the claims department of BAVARIA AG, a team of skilled boat builders, lawyers and experts process every claim unbureaucratically and, above all, particularly quickly. You can reach our team around the clock, even at weekends.

Transport and winter storage also insured

A yacht insurance policy from BAVARIA AG is also valid on land. As part of the all-risk cover, winter storage and transport within Europe are also insured.

Dinghy and trailer insured

BAVARIA’s all-risk cover includes the dinghy and trailer. Since theft is not uncommon, this part is an important component of a good yacht insurance policy.

Liability insurance

Worldwide cover

It doesn’t matter where in the world you are: BAVARIA AG protects you against damage to third parties. All personal injury and property damage can be insured up to an amount of 30 million euros.

Best prizes

A motor boat with 750 hp and a sum insured of up to 10 million euros costs only 188.70 euros (net) per year with us.

Dinghy included in insurance

The dinghy of your yacht is also insured with BAVARIA AG without limitation of benefits and free of premium.

Rental property damage/default cover

If the opposing insurance does not cover these damages, the liability insurance of BAVARIA AG will take effect.

Environmental and water damage also insured

Environmental and water damage caused by you is also insured up to the flat-rate sum insured. Fire brigade operations are also covered.

Trailer insurance

When detached, the trailer is also insured with BAVARIA AG. After all, it is always possible that minor injuries or damage, e.g. to other cars, may occur.

No health check required

With BAVARIA AG there is no restriction due to a health check, but instead quick cover.

Costs covered of searching for, rescuing or recovering

BAVARIA AG shall bear all costs for search, rescue and recovery measures in the amount of the agreed sum insured.

Cost coverage of cosmetic surgery

If injuries occur as a result of damage that necessitate cosmetic surgery, BAVARIA AG’s passenger accident insurance will also take effect here.

Reimbursement of repatriation costs

After an accident or damage, repatriation costs, also by helicopter or aeroplane, are also insured up to an amount of the agreed sum insured.

Insurance cover in case of death or disability

In the very rare cases of death or disability, BAVARIA AG’s passenger accident insurance will cover up to an amount equal to the agreed sum insured.

No limitation on boat size

BAVARIA AG passenger accident insurance is not tied to the size of the boat. Only very large yachts require special insurance and an adjustment of the sum insured.
