We know, we know: you don’t want to think about it. But the unavoidable reality is, death comes to us all—we just don’t know when. But you can give you and your family financial peace of mind should something happen to you.

What is life assurance?

Designed specifically with yacht crew in mind, Waves Life term life assurance offers worldwide protection and can cover periods of 1 to 30 years. It is a comprehensive expat life assurance policy, whether you’re abroad temporarily, or setting up a new life overseas after yachting.

Providing financial security for your family

A death in the family is a terrible event with which to have to come to terms. But what if that death occurs to one of the main income providers? That means you. The loss can have an even more significant effect on those left behind.

Level term life assurance protects your family from the financial loss that they would suffer in the event of your death. The policy pays a lump sum, which is determined by you at the outset, in the event of your death occurring during the term of the cover.

Level term life assurance provides cover for a fixed annual premium for the duration of the cover. You can select cover for a term of 1 to 30 years.

The sum insured remains fixed for the period of cover, so the full amount of the sum insured would be payable regardless of when a death occurred during the cover—on the first day, or on the very last day of your cover.
