RIB Insurance - URGENT

Im looking for insurance for my RIB, uses must include diving and voyages as far a field as The Channel Isles and Scilly.

Its not for commercial use, private only.

All the insurance quotes Ive got so far are for only as far as 20 miles from shore.

Any recommendations....

I need to get it asap.

You need to specifically ask for larger coverage area. I think the phrasing is something like 'Brest to the Elbe' ie. coverage for basically all of Europe. This is standard for yots/powercruisers. I had this coverage through Mardon Insurance but any of the specialist marine brokers should be able to offer it, albeit at an additional cost to coastal UK.

Out of the fog......

Talk to the guys at Navigators & General - part of Zurich. Usually exceptionally helpful (they're based somewhere near Brighton I think).

I am with Mardon, and under my policy I have to let them know when I crossing the Channel, and I think there is a limit on the number of days away. If that helps
