Boat Insurance

That time of year again......the insurance man cometh.
Anybody got boat insurance at a good rate. Last year left it too late to look round and the few I did get varied by hundreds of pounds / Euros

Hi, i have used www.craftinsure.com for the last few years and found the premiums very competetive. You can do all of the proposal online, pay monthly etc etc. I have never had to make a claim though and that is really the acid test.

They might, but they wanted the earth to insure my formula.

I found Porthcawl to be the cheapest by a lot

Careful with Craftinsure if you've got a fast boat...

50mph (43kts) maximum.

Do a search as this has come up loads of times before.

I use Colin Curtis & Partners 01752 664649

PIC (Porthcawl) were a tad cheaper but Colin Curtis were v helpful with customised policy.

I visited craftinsure at the boatshow. 50mph is an absolute limit, they will not negotiate. They also assume that boat owners all over estimate their boat speed and therefore don't really want to insure a true 50mph boat.

I also visited craftinsure's underwriters and they were very honest in stating they are mostly interested in big slow gin palace type stuff.

Craftinsure

But still OK for smaller RIBs - they quote quite competitively for boats that meet their criteria. As with all policies, check the Ts and Cs as there are a lot of exclusions! ('specially anchoring and mooring).
