It's one that has been discussed a few times. May I suggest you do a search.

Match, to be honest, there are loads of insurance companies out there, as yet in 15 years of having a boat, I have been lucky and never had to claim, so I do not know if the companies I have used are any good.

So in short, I cant answer your question, however I am sure someone will soon.

Steve

Again same answer as above, you never know how good an insurance company is until you need to use them by way of a claim.

If it helps I am with craftinsure they are well priced and flexible I had problems last year getting cover to go in convoy to the channel Islands this company covered it. HOWEVER, thank fully I have not made a claim so proof is in the pudding.

I know there are a few guys with them. Craftinsure Boat Insurance | Compare Yacht, Narrowboat, Dinghy, RIB, Speedboat, Canoe and Kayak Insurance

PeterM can advise who not to insure with

CRAFTINSURE were good for me, I had to claim last year and they paid out with only one quotation from Menai Marine and didnt even send a surveyor out, policy has gone up a bit this year but still stook with them for their previous service

Craftinsure.com

are susspiciously cheap used them for ages & always thought this could be difficult if I had to claim but had a claim of several thousand pounds a couple of years ago & they couldnt have been better

I'm always suspicious of companies like them that do all there business online & expected to have to do all the claim online too but it wasnt they were always there at the end of the phone & returned calls if they didnt have the answer straight away

highly recomended
