Benefits of our Broads Boat Insurance

  • Simple to buy 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's falling to bits!).
  • Generous No Claims Bonus Can build up to 25% discount.
  • Multi-vessel discounts Available for two or more boats.
  • Repair clause Policy will pay 125% of the sum insured for repairs (to recognise that old boats are often more expensive to repair than simply buying a replacement).
  • Racing cover Automatically included for all sailing boats (so you can compete in the annual regatta without fear of being uninsured).
  • Fixed policy excess The amount you pay is not a percentage of the loss.
  • Reduced excess If approved repairers used.
  • Keen pricing Reflects the unique risks presented by Broads-based craft.
  • A local team All administration handled locally by knowledgeable staff with experience and familiarity of the Broads.
