Rib insurance

My latest premium landed on my doormat the other day, and it prompted me to do a bit of research.
I found this thread and tried them.
My current premium is 342 and the new agents can do it for 219. A bit of a saving. But you never know how good it is until you put in a claim.

Nick.

I have not used Mardon but had a couple of quotes, I still use Porthcawl Ins and they have been very good for last four years, but I suppose it all depnds when a claim is made at the end of the day. People at Porthcawl always helpful and competative too. Hope this helps

We changed from Marden and now use Euro Marine Services.

They gave the same cover for less money may well be worth a call to them for a quote.

All the best

Nobody could match my Porthcawl insurance renewal, I tried everyone! The nearest was 50 higher

Hi
I have used Euromarine for the last 5 years and find them very good both in terms of the premium and there service. I had asked for a quote from Pothcawl last month and there service was very attentive but there quote was 10 dearer. I suppose the real cost is when you have to make a claim and thankfully I have not done so and would like to kept it that way.
Happy ribbing
J

Cancel that, it seems an error was made regarding the top speed of my boat, (about 35 knots).
If the speed is over 30 knots, the premium goes up to 400.
Ho hum.

Nick.

Any advice for a company who insure for all year round use?

Our policy is for this. It's with Haven Knox Johnston and was taken out through Colin Curtis (http://www.curtismarine.co.uk/). We have compared with other insurers and found them the most competitive for our needs - in commission all year round and full continental cover including the 'open sea' bits (e.g. when going across the channel) which many policies do not cover, as they do not provide cover beyond 12 miles offshore (IIRC). You also need to be careful about top speed (as Nik has found out!) - remember it's design speed, not necessarily actual speed achieved with your particular engine choice! Our policy also allows us to act as a safety boat. HTH.
