We know that all whiteboats are white but not all brownboats are brown!

Benefits of our Broads Boat Insurance

  • Specifically designed for broads based boats.
  • Onerous survey requirements replaced by simple condition report, including option to self-certify (just because a boat is 50 years old it doesn't mean it is falling to bits!).
  • Generous 'No Claim Bonus' building up to 25% discount.
  • Multi-vessel discounts for 2 or more boats insured on the same policy.
  • Repair clause – policy will pay 125% of the sum insured for repairs (to recognise that old boats are often more expensive to repair than the cost of buying a replacement).
  • Racing cover included automatically for all sailing boats (so you can compete in the annual regatta without fear of being uninsured).
  • Fixed policy excess (not a percentage of the loss).
  • Reduced excess if approved repairers used.
  • Keen pricing to reflect the unique risks presented by broads based craft.
  • Simple to arrange – no long winded proposal forms.
  • All administration handled locally by knowledgeable staff with experience and familiarity of the broads.
