Previous to starting Hanham Insurance Agency, he worked in Lloyd’s Insurance Market in London advising and negotiating insurance coverage for some of the world’s largest Superyachts. During his time in London, he noticed the lack of client service available for the smaller yachts and boats. With this in mind, he returned to the States and to found Hanham Insurance Agency with the following vision:

To Provide Yacht, Boat, and Marine Business Owners with:


The Best Coverage

Hugo grew up in Charleston, where he found a passion for sailing and boating. He worked as seasonal first mate for 5 years on a 100 ft. classic sailing yacht “Belle Aventure”. When not in the office, he can be found working on and sailing his 1968, Ohlson Sailboat, “KELPIE”, spending time with his family and friends, or out on the water fishing.
