Marine Hull insurance covers nearly everything that floats and moves, starting with rowing boat to huge ocean going tankers. Besides that, hull underwriters will not hesitate to insure non-propelled objects, which may occasionally move such as floating docks, buoys, transshipment barges and even floating hotels. Furthermore we can say that vessels under conversion or construction are also dealt with by marine hull underwriters.
