SIB insurance

Hi guys

I have just bought a new Zodiac Fastroller Activ-v 360 and a 2004 Mercury 15hp 2 stroke outboard

I'm looking for insurance for this setup,

Any ideas who is good but cheap?

What price should I be looking at?

Cheers

Steven

Hi Fenlander

Thanks for the reply

Do I class it as a rib or small motor boat?

Regards

Steven

Mine have always been under the small motor boat class sfter I emailed them to ask advice and check it was the correct category. The most important thing I seem to remember is a max speed of 23kts (?)... if your setup can exceed that you need to be in the speedboat or rib category. I think with a 15hp you'll be fine to keep under that speed.

I haven't had any claims but just about now I'm doing my 5th policy with them so I'm happy with their service so far.

Same here - ensure it is under a small craft - classing it as a RIB will make it the work of the devil and load the premium by a few hundred %.

I've just done the Craftinsure renewal this morning for my new Zodiac. Premium up to 51 from the previous boat's 42 but considering the outfit value has risen by 2000 that's OK.

Their site is so easy to use. Old policy cancelled and new one set up in less than 5mins. All documents mailed immediately. I print off a spare copy of the cover certificate and encapsulate it for carrying in the boat.

Sorry to bring up an older thread, but im just looking at getting insured with craftinsure after reading this. Im basically looking for a quick answer though.. Does their small motor boat insurance@42 cover theft?
Iv had a look at the site and cant seem to see anything about what it actually covers, unless its staring me in the face & im just too tired to see it!

Yes that 42 does include theft... somewhere (in a sample policy on their site?) it explains which items are covered, conditions and exclusions.

Edit: Just looked... it's on the home page under "summary of cover".
