Of course there are others but the Craftinsure smallcraft policy for your size and HP is good value and can be arranged online in minutes.

Need? Legally none. Although it really should be......

Mines with John of this parish these days, used to be with Insure my boat with the sib and smaller rib but they didn't seem to like the larger one.

Well now and again we see a claim of unexpected high speeds on here but in general you'd be looking at nearer 15-17Kts with that outfit with an average load.

Hi, glad this post came up, I also would like to insure my boat, it's 4.2 futura air floor with a 25 2s and don't have any idea of the top speed, do I need to insure it as longer than 4m, guessing I do
Cheers A

Best to keep things straight with insurance... if you use Carftinsure their smallcraft with motor class is up to 5m so you're OK.

Re speed depending on your load I reckon you'll be just about at their 23Kts limit.
