To throw my two penneth in, i too have just taken out insurance with Porthcawl. Really helpful and significantly cheaper than other quotes I received (for the same level of cover as far as i can see).

You can't moan at 135 either can ya mate?
Mine covers me for it being left on a mooring from April to October too. I'm already insured with another company but when I asked for a price to update my policy for it to live on it's new mooring the price increase made it cheaper to give Porthcawl a bell.

Just hope if the worst happens (touch wood) that they pay out!

I'm with em too. My little SR4 left on a mooring fully comp during the season then third party fire and theft in the winter and fully comp if out of the water, can't remember how much but were the cheapest and actually had an idea what I was talking about.

Hi I am glad some folks are getting good deals from them but I have tried them twice over the last two years latest last month an they are no cheaper than Euromarine who I have been with for six years now. is there a secret to your quot info thats allowing you to be quoted such big reductions?

Don't think so J.
Think it's down to location mostly?

They? Just think about who handles the claim if you're unfortunate enough to have to make one. The broker? (in this case Porthcawl) - No. The Underwriter? - Yes. Who's underwriting these policies? I hope for your sakes it isn't Aviva.
