RIB Insurance

Hi all, apologies if this is in the wrong place!

As I have said in another post I'm buying my first RIB, which I collect early next week!

Does anyone have any recommendations for RIB Insurance companies? Or potential things to look out for?

I have done a couple of comparison sites that gave me between 96 p/y and 370 p/y, and also "Craftinsure" which quoted around 179 p/y.

It's for a Ribeye 600 with Yammy 115 and trailer, which will be used inland/coastal and kept ashore in a locked compound on the trailer when not in use.

Thanks all!

I recently bought my first RIB and trawled the internet for insurance. In the end the best service and a decent quote came from Towergate.

Easy to deal with, good advice.

Dont forget insurance is only worth it if you actually claim, thats when good service counts, not the fact you saved a tenner.

Thanks everyone - some names to check there. Towergate gave about the most expensive quote from the comparison website and have called/emailed me almost constantly since I put my details in; a little annoying tbh.
