Uberrima Fides or “Utmost good faith” – Why Is It Relevant?

The principle of uberrima fides or “utmost good faith” began in British maritime insurance law many centuries ago and is a principle foundation of all insurance. It was first formally recognized in 1766 and later adopted into English maritime insurance law and subsequently incorporated into American maritime insurance law. The U.S. Supreme Court stated, “the contract of insurance, is one of mutual good faith; and the principles which govern it, are those of an enlightened moral policy.” This principle’s enforcement has become somewhat watered down in personal lines, but is rigorously enforced and therefore of particular relevance in marine insurance.

An anti-theft system will alert you when suspicious activity is occurring on the boat. Smartphones and sophisticated apps have simplified monitoring a boat’s security. If a sensor is triggered, the anti-theft system will automatically send an alert to your smartphone or tablet.   

Some systems are also able to respond to a possible theft with an audible alarm, disabling the battery, or recording video through an onboard camera. Critical boat systems, such as bilge pumps, battery levels, and high-water pumps, can also be monitored.
