self-build rib

I have recently completed a self-build of a 6 mtr rib.It looks fantastic and is great on test in the water. Has anyone any recommendations for insurance cover as my regular broker says they wish to decline. I have a surveyors report and full project record of the build. Any help appreciated

I use Saga, they were happy I built most of mine but required a survey. Give em a try.

But, let us see your boat and build record!

And, welcome to Ribnet!

Just spoke with Saga who use M S Amlin and they will not offer a quote based on it being a self-build despite all info available

That's a bummer. There will be some company that insure self-builds, plenty of folks do it. Have you tried Practical Boat Owner (PBO) magazine? Contact them and ask if they're aware of a suitable insurer.
