RIB Insurance

My RIB Insurance is due up soon. Currently with Royal Sun Alliance through Marldon. Quoted 387 with 1 years NCD.
Who do most RIBnet members insure with?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Had my last RIB insured with the same company again through Mardon. About 250 for a RIB valued at 12k. Didn't find anywhere else cheaper.

rib insurance

One of the best i have found is

http://www.divernet.com/westfield/boats.htm

and most of the boats the insure are dive ribs but the cover is comprehensive . When i had a claim last year you could not fault the service and they paid out very quickly

RIB Insurance

You could try Giles Insurance (Marine Section) on 01294 274629. Always been good for me with very low premiums and very good comms.

link: www.thebroker.co.uk

Jim Bell was the man to talk to but I suspect he may have left the company as his name isn't appearing on letters anymore.

However I haven't had to make a claim (yet) so cannot comment on that side of it.

I use http://www.porthcawl-insurance.co.uk/ haven't needed to claim, but always answer the phone if I need to change / add cover. Also offer legal protection for 10. I pay 300 for 5.6m rib with 90hp, trailer and 1000 of electronic bits.

I also use PIC above. Competitive rates and good advice - particularly with regards to the application of policy wording. For me the big benefit is a declared value cover - not some loss adjusters view of " market" worth if it is lost.
Thankfully I have not had to make a claim to test how reaaly good the cover is .............

Insurance

Having just had the misfortune to have to make a claim I cannot speak highly enough of Heath Lambot Insurance services. I paid 380.00 for a years insurance on 38,000.00 After having the covers slashed and CD player stolen the claim was dealt with and paid out within 4 weeks. Contacts below www.heathlambot.com tel. 01512274321
good luck
