  • capture, seizure, arrest, restraint or detainment
  • derelict weapons of war (mines, torpedoes, bombs )
  • strikers, locked-out workmen, riots or civil commotions
  • any terrorist or any person acting maliciously or from a political motive
  • confiscation or expropriation
  • violent theft by persons from outside the vessel
  • piracy
  • misconduct of Master, Officers or Crew
  • Passenger Liability Regulation (PLR War)

Different facilities are available to members on a mutual and non mutual basis.
