Chris,
We insure our BWM DS 21 through Mardon Insurance Brokers (I think the policy is with GA). I've found them to be competitive on premiums (a shade over 300 for our rig). Not personally ever had to claim from them but a mate of mine recently managed to turn his boat/trailer/Explorer over at 55mph on the A127. That was 3 wks ago - his boat is already being repaired whilst his car insurer's (Norwich Union) are still arguing the toss over his car!

HTH, Alan

I live in Jersey and I pay 135 for insurance on my 6.5m Tornado.

Through a local brokerage I am issured through Nautical Insurance Services Limited, 57 Elm Road, Leigh on Sea, Essex.

I don't know whether I got a very good deal as insurance over here tends to be cheaper anyway, but this was the most compentative price I got, the most expensive being well over 400.

The service appears to be very good and the cover is very good however, I have never had a claim so I don't know what they are like when it comes to getting money out of them.

Regards
Anton

many thanks for the info on insurance,a minefield area and one that i think you have to go with your gut feelings about whichever company etc..i s'pose it's not until you need them till you find out wether they are good,bad or indifferent.
