Hi I called Mardon yesterday to renew my insurance with Boat at 8,500
I can leave it on a tidal marring without chaining it up & I have also added a 2.65 Yam SIB + a Yamaha Malta fouled at 600!
Which gave me a total to pay of 241.16 not bad me thinks.
Nick

Just had a quote from craftinsure.com - 200 cheaper than one quote. I can't believe how easy it was to get covered - they didn't even want address! Has anyone had any problems claiming and back up service? Seems too good to be true - which is usually true!!!

I have just had a few quotes for my Crompton 7.8 mtr. Best was from Porthcawl Insurance Consultants Ltd: www.portcawl-insurance.co.uk

Good luck

My rib

You lot have an advatange and I guess you would not insure me for love nor money given my lack of expereince and developed death wish....

however.....

for 6.5m and 150 optimax on trailer in locked Berthon Marina in Lymington with no no claims bonus can anyone tell me what I should be paying?

The three quotes I have all come out at around GBP (can't find a pound sign, am in Prague on a Czech keyboard!) 340.
