Boat Insurance

Thanks to all who have replied. I don't know what my quote for this year is , but last year was circa 370 yo yo's (Euro) so obviously not too bad by all accounts. It did exclude leaving on the water overnight and the trailer has to be chained to an unremovable point even though its garaged. I recall a pal of mine getting UK insurance for a couple of hundred pounds.

When the quote comes through, and I check out the other players, I'll post the results to the forum

They do tend to think of a number though!

Steve,
What does "left in the water" mean?

Policies I've seen specify that craft must not be left unattanded unless on a non-tidal fixed mooring.

Boat Insurance

Anybody tried Bishop Skinner RYA/RNLI Advantage Scheme?

If my memory serves me correct, for 260 smacker i get;

*Full legal cover (useful if you doing safety cover and some muppet decides to go for the orange target!)
*Insured wherever I want provided wheel clamp fitted or when on the water, must be chained to mooring/pontoon
*Certain named gismos insured on or off the boat up to 1,000
*Personal kit to the value of 500
*Engine 8,500
*Hull 3,000
*Trailer 1,000
*and the excess of 250 (yeah I know bit of a kick in the balls!)

They are one of the bigger yacht brokers and I`ve heard no bad stories about them.

Word of warning though, the cheapest quote doesn't necessarily mean the best cover!



Chris

Boat Insurance

Well, Finally managed to get the boat and bits insured again. Total value E30,000 for E360. E3,000,000 public liability, Coastal waters use and dry stored (secured) with E317 Excess.

Planning a trip to wales shortly, they have agreed to extend the cover for the period to offshore and moored afloat......at NO extra cost. Who said insurance men were not nice people !!

I heard a rumour that an insurance company in one country in the EU cannot/will not insure you if you live in a diferent country? (Any type of insurance).
Huh? Thought that was what the Common Market was all about?
Anyone comment?
