New to RIBs Insurance?

Hi All

I'm a proud new owner of a Humber Attaque 5.3 (Clam Chowder)!

I want to get insurance sorted before I collect it later this week, so require recommendations for insurance?

Many thanks
Nathan

Too many people to list, however I am with Porthcawl Insurance.

I have a good renewal price, but never needed to call on them

I use craftinsure, which seem reasonable but should probably check to see if anyone else is cheaper.

Hi
I am also with Porthcawl and have been so for about 10 years mostly with Humber destroyer 5.5
Just had renewal in 203 not too bad as paying bills goes.The thing is never had to make a claim.And last year had a service at a boat yard got talking and he was telling me the differculties in claiming
It is all hearsay but he told me Porthcawl proved differcult when making a claim so I would like to know any company that is should we say Fair
Can anyone recomend a company or warn to stay away from please tell all
Stuart

I have now taken out a new policy with Alan & Thomas. for my searider.
After speaking to John Friendship I felt he offered a more personal service than the online only companies I had previously dealt with. Also I found it quick and simple to get all my questions and concerns dealt with instantly over the phone.
A little bit more than my previous premium but well worth it for the personal service and peace of mind this brings.
Worth a quote at renewal time.
And they have an office in Poole if I need to have a word in person

Maybe I will get a good discount now
Oh too late I already agreed the price

I've had similar experience dealing with Jim Bell at AJG International. Nice to deal with a human being and worth a few extra quid IMHO. Never had to make a claim though so the proof of the pudding and all that. AJG are a broker to I suspect the claim process is more to do with the insurer than anything.

He's quoted me 296 for the new boat, fully comp. I have not shopped this figure around so don't know how competitive it is.
