Insurance

Hi, I'm trying to insure a Humber Destroyer 5.5m RIB. Has anyone got any recommendations? What are Craft Insure like?
Thanks

I've used Craftinsure for about 10 years & have been fine had to make a couple of claims one over 5k the other over 10k both settled without a hitch
& a real person to deal with through the claim process

Have a look at Mercia Marine, they are coming in 70 cheaper than A&T for me with the same level of cover.

+1 for Mercia Marine I've swapped to them this year after a set too with Mardon what a waste of time they are 🙄

I used SAGA this year. Very helpful and much cheaper (about 100) than Noble Marine or Towergate. They also covered me for all year use and towing. I appreciate I am over 50 something ! (Got cover for 137)

Thanks for all the advice.
John at Alan Thomas was a top tip, very helpful and saved me 's.
Significantly cheaper than other quotes for similar cover.
Here's hoping I don't have to claim!
