SEAFAR is an insurance pool not a fleet insurance policy. See the insurance brochure below for more information about SEAFAR. We do carry reinsurance to minimize risk to the insurance pool. SEAFAR insurance pool provides P&I coverage with hull insurance (minimum 33% of the hull coverage).
All SEAFAR members are also members of SEAFA. General membership dues are $200 plus $25 for each of the four ADF&G Divisions (salmon, crab, shrimp and longline) for which a member holds a permit. SEAFA is a non-profit Alaska corporation governed by a 12 member Board of Directors, 4 elected by the general membership and 2 from each of the fishery divisions. SEAFA seeks to preserve and protect the Southeast Alaska commercial fishing industry while promoting legislation, resource conservation, and at sea safety practices for the general welfare and benefit of the membership.
If you are not already a SEAFA member you can still submit an insurance application and get your approval status, though before you will be able to start the insurance you will be required to join SEAFA, the membership application is available at the bottom of the page and is labeled as “SEAFA Membership Application”.
