Insurance company recommendations please

We are just about to take delivery of our new RIB, and would be grateful for any comments (good or bad ) about who to use (or not) for insurance.

I have insured my sailing boat with GJW before, and have found them to be a great company, but I don't know yet whether they insure RIBs.

Someone who handles claims well and does not try to wriggle out of everything is more important to me than saving 50 a year!

I look forward to your comments...........

I am still fighting with Norwich Union over the theft of my Scorpion a year ago. They wriggled on a technicality.

A lot of my customers are with Mardon, and seem to say good things about them!

I was with Bishop Skinner, and I found them to be really good. They paid the one theft claim I had to make no questions. They also offer a discount if you are an RYA Member or an RNLI Offshore member.

Nav and Gen seem very cheap compared to many others. I've skimmed through the policy summary and it seems similar to many others, but are you aware of anything that they obviously don't cover that others do? Have you ever had to make a claim with them?

Cheers

Andrew
