Mariners General Insurance

Founded in 1959, we at Mariners Insurance over the years have maintained our shared commitment to provide both the best and right insurance protection for our boat owners and marine business clients. Mariners Insurance was formed by Byron Chamberlain, a boating enthusiast, and has expanded throughout the decades to serve the marine industry throughout the country. Headquartered in Newport Beach, California, we have additional offices located in San Diego, the San Francisco Bay area and Bradenton, Florida.

At Mariners Insurance, we insure boats in every ocean of the world. Wherever you are on your boat, one of our representatives can be reached by phone, fax, or email. We can be reached via email 7 days a week.

We’re also avid boaters ourselves, and love boating as much as our clients.

Additionally, our staff has extensive offshore experience, which enables us to identify and anticipate potential exposures boaters and the marine business community may face. Whether motoring a 27-footer through the Sacramento Delta or cruising a 200-foot mega-yacht through the Mediterranean, you can depend on Mariners Insurance.
