I've just renewed with Towergate Mardon who have seamed quite reasonable for the last few years.

Irish Ribbers Note!

And for all those ribbers over here - Yachtsman Euromarine have dropped their premiums drastically. Worth a call if you passed them up before due to cost.

Towergate Mardon and Porthcawl are both good , Navigators & General can be worth a look to.

My advice - dont try and save 10 and cut the values of your kit down - if it gets nicked you will regret it. Always over value it if anything.

And cheapest is not always best, but it can be if you read the policy wording - make sure you do read it to know what you have cover for & update it if needed.

Over the years I have always found Euromarine excellent both to deal with and their polices.
Hope this helps.

Hi There, as with any insurance poilicy you should ring around every year.

It is common practice to give a great price on 1 st year premiums in the knowledge that over 60% of people cannot be bothered or leave it too late on the 2nd year premiums and that's where they make the money.
