About Us

Beale Marine & Casualty, Inc, an Independent Marine Insurance Agency, was established in 1986 to offer superior service & representation to the marine industry.  We specialize in placing coverage for:

Yacht Owners



Commercial Hull   &  P&I


Terminal Operators

Jones Act Coverage

Boat Builders


Charter Boats

Passenger Vessels

Vessel Builders Risk

Workers Compensation

After working for stevedoring firms & running passenger vessels we saw a need for a truly independent agency that believes in service after the sale.  Anybody can sell you an insurance policy but do they truly know what coverage’s are needed?  Do they know what underwriters are competitive?  Last but not least do they understand the Marine Business?  We were blessed with being raised in a Seafaring family where boats were not a hobby but a way of life.  All this adds up to one thing, expertise and superior service for our clients.

Beale Marine & Casualty handles all types of marine coverage from Maine to Brownsville, Texas including the Caribbean.  We represent all the major American insurance companies with A.M. Best ratings of “A” or better.  We also have a Florida surplus lines license which enables us to place business with Lloyds brokers and underwriters directly without having a middleman involved.  Our nearly twenty years of placing business with underwriters guarantees competitive pricing without sacrificing coverage.
