Small open motor boat insurance

Why insure your small open motor boat with us?

Do you think paying for repairs after someone damaged your boat is fair? Or buying a new boat because it was stolen? We don’t.  That’s why our insurance is designed to protect your small open motor boat against theft, accidental damage, malicious damage and salvage charges.  

It includes up to £3 million Third Party Liability as standard which protects you if your small open motor boat damages another boat, someone else’s property or causes injury to a person. This is vital as there are many other valuable crafts floating on the UK’s seas and one collision could escalate quickly, leading to a lawsuit or claim costing thousands of pounds.  

You can also add on optional extras to your policy to suit your needs including Winter cover which means you can use your boat on coastal waters from the 1st November – 31st March. You can also add Personal Accident cover, so you’re not on your own if you sustain a serious injury whilst out on your boat.
