insurance

I've jsut bought my first rib (4.9m Bombard, Suzuki DF50) and will be launching it mainly from the hard in Brightlingsea (no jokes please!). I need to get 3rd part insurance. Any clues as to good cheap insurance? How much should i expect to be paying.

It's you who must be........

Joking. Third Party Insurance with a nice bit of kit like that, come on don't penny pinch at this stage in the game.

Most I know tend to use Mardon Insurance on 01743 232688. Good, reliable, competitive and well versed with all things nautical.

If you want 3rd party only, http://www.basic-boat.com may be worth a look. Otherwise, fully-comp "off-the-shelf" policies like Craftinsure look like good value, as long as you fit the criteria (basically under 50mph) - I guess your boat does. For other recommendations do a search as this has been discussed many times before.

Meme, why shouldn't someone consider 3rd party only? If the loss of the vessel is acceptable/affordable then 3rd party is the way to go... but then for a few extra 's you can cover several k's worth of craft.

Insurance

I called Mardon Insurance in Shrewsbury recently and they informed me that they no longer insure RIBs!

Well I'm unsure........

who you spoke to because I just called them, spoke to a very nice chap called Andy who advised they continue to insure RIBS - No Problem !
