Insurance

Can anyone recommend best insurers for a RIB? Are there any particular points to take in to account to keep premium down?

Rodin , Use the Search facility

There are lots of threads about this. Towing toys / waterskiers can double your premium ! We use PIC ( Porthcawl Insurance ). Never had a problem , but never made a claim !

Robin hi, it would be worth having a good read through Ribnet and use the search facility as there are lots of good info on here. Also worth thinking about is are you going abroad with her.

Send a message via MSN to boatbuoy
- Tell them of your RYA qualifications & experience.
- Storage: Locked in a secure compound, or use of insurance approved branded wheel clamps and hitch lock.
- Locking bolts on the engine
- Make sure it covers you whilst it's on the trailer in transit, because your car insurance won't.

Have a look back as this one pops up a lot. Click on search then insurance.
My company asked about locks, training, fire extinguisher and storage. Good luck.

Very helpful and seems to be a comprehensive policy... none of this 'boat must not be used in water....' etc

Porthcawl - v helpful, competitive and a "can-do" attitude.
