PreInformation in accordance with §15 VersVermV (German Insurance Brokers and other Intermediaries Act)


Our company, Hamburger Yacht-Versicherung Schomacker Versicherungsmakler GmbH, has since 1997 as the legal successor to the company Hamburger Yacht-Versicherungs-Vermittlung Erich Schomacker Versicherungsmakler, specialised in the brokering and administration of insurance policies in the private customer and medium sized commercial sector. Staffed by highly qualified employees our company services customers in Germany and the European Economic Area. Our main area of activity concerns yacht and charter insurance and special cover concepts in the water sports sector.

As your insurance broker, we are happy to advise you in all insurance matters on the basis of an all-encompassing brokerage contract. The remuneration - called brokerage - for our advisory, brokerage and support activities is normally borne by the insurance company. The courtage is part of the insurance premium. Deviating from this must be expressly agreed on between us and the client. In rare cases and up to a small extent, special reimbursements for insurers may occur in the event of a very good claims experience. A conflict of interest does not occur as a result.

We are a member of the Bundesverband Deutscher Versicherungsmakler e.V., BDVM (German Insurance Brokers‘ Association). The required quality standards of the BDVM are significantly higher than the admission requirements for insurance brokers pursuant to the Gewerbeordnung (German Trade, Commerce and Industry Regulation Act) and the Versicherungsvermittlungsordnung (German Insurance Brokerage Ordinance).
