Insurance services and technology provider Charles Taylor has expanded its marine capabilities by integrating Bowditch Marine, Pilot Marine, and the marine surveyors of Charles Taylor Adjusting, under a new brand, to be known as Charles Taylor Marine Technical Services.

Charles Taylor purchased Bowditch Marine in 2018 and acquired Pilot Marine in 2020 to service the marine industry. Charles Taylor Adjusting has been providing full-service adjusting and surveying services, including marine surveying, since 2001. By combining its marine surveying experience, the newly integrated team will provide marine and cargo surveying and consulting services to assist vessel owners, reinsurance and insurance underwriters, and other maritime interests. Charles Taylor Marine Technical Services will offer the full spectrum of technically advanced surveying services from pre-voyage inspections to post-damage surveys, enhancing the range of marine insurance services provided.

Charles Taylor Marine Technical Services enables the expansion of technical surveying capabilities with specialised professional expertise focusing on risk management, loss mitigation, damage repair and remediation.  Survey competencies for commercial vessels, mega-yachts and ports include Hull & Machinery, Ocean & Inland Cargo, Warranty, and Marine Property.  Charles Taylor Marine Technical Services will address the interests of vessel owners, vessel charterers, hull & machinery underwriters, P&I Clubs, insurance pools, cargo owners and re/insurance underwriters.

“The creation of Charles Taylor Marine Technical Services, through bringing together our highly skilled industry professionals, will enable us to centralize technical expertise under one brand, streamline client responsiveness and leverage operational scale,” said Christopher Schaffer, Head of Charles Taylor Third Party Administration.
