New RIB needs insurance

Hi All,

This is my first post. I've just bought a used 2006 Avon Adventure 400 with Suzuki 25hp 4 stroke. It's my first toe in the water with a RIB having had sailing boats for years. Can anyone recommend a good insurance company for RIBs please? I paid £4.5k for the package and want to insure for around that value.

All advice welcome!

Cheers,

Paul

Porthcawl have always served me well on Price and service on a recent claim. I have my 2006 Adventure 400 in Chrstchurch too( among other things) - is yours the one that was outside 'the boathouse' ?

An ideal boat for round there

Porthcawl for me too. I Insure for total cost rather than market value.

Well I'll be different Euromarine for me I have had a good service from them for many years. But it is all down to personal needs and wants so do a trawl on the net and see who meets your needs and couple that up with the feedback from the guys on here and make your choice.

I did look at that one but decided the engine was a bit more than I needed (it has a 50hp two stroke). Thanks for the advice.

Out of interest, how many people have their RIB insured for total cost? And how many for market value? I got quite a few quotes in August and none could offer Total cost insurance for anything near Porthcawl's policy and many of the market value policy's quoted were higher.

Total cost may be that on the boat, but very very very few will give that on the engine. Porthcawl didn't on my tender OB.....but I did know that.
