Rib Insurance

Hi

I'm buying a Ribeye 7.5 with two 115 engines but can't find anyone who wants to insure it !

Is there any insurance company which specialises in Ribs ?

Many thanks

Musk

Have you tried Porthcawl - they do mine and seem to know the RIB sector pretty well - havent claimed yet so dont know what they're like when things go pearshaped, but so far, so good

Do a search - there's lots of threads on Insurance!

Yep, Porthcawl seem to have a good reputation and their MD Steve Knipe is very well informed http://www.porthcawl-insurance.co.uk/.

We use Colin Curtis Marine - http://www.curtismarine.co.uk/

Euromarine have a good reputation too - http://www.euromarine-ltd.com/

R A Carter. Weve insured with them for years, and now on a rib which will end up in the Med
