Our Boat (Hull & Machinery) & Third Party Liability Motor Boat Insurance has been designed to protect you and your Motor Boat against theft, accidental damage, malicious damage and salvage charges.
Our policy includes £3 million Third Party Liability cover as standard. If you’re using your Motor Boat on inland waterways, a minimum of £1 million Third Party Liability is a legal requirement.
Our Third Party Liability cover protects you if you have an accident on the water and you cause damage to another boat, someone else’s property or injure another person.
Motor Boat Insurance covers a wide range of boats, from Inland Crafts to Motor Cruisers. Motor Boats can be covered up to maximum speed of 50 knots. The following mooring types are also covered; marina, ashore and swing, trot or pile, fore, aft, and pontoon. Motor Boat Insurance is there to protect you, your boat and other boat users as a result of theft or damage to your boat, or protecting your liability in the event that your boat causes damage to another boat, property or injuries to a person.
The cost of your Motor Boat Insurance will vary, depending on a number of factors, including; the type of cover that you opt for, the maximum speed of your boat, its value, its age, the mooring location of your Motor Boat and your own age, marine experience and claims history.
