RIBs – Rigid Inflatable Boats – are probably the safest form of boating particularly for the family. Just think for a moment why the RNLI use them. Worldwide, the use of RIBs has outgrown all other forms of boating and in Ireland it has become increasingly popular. If you visit most marinas and harbours throughout Ireland, there will most certainly be a number of RIBs moored there. We have over 10 years experience using RIBs for family fun and doing long haul trips with RNLI crew. We have seen many types of claims and know the level of cover required.
Yacht and sailing boats
As with RIBs, most of the covers required are similar for yachts and sailing boats because the general risks remain the same. Again we use experienced underwriters (who normally sail themselves) to provide the all important cover. Sails are covered as is underwater gear and transit by road. The policies offered are underwritten on an ‘all-risks’ basis so most eventualities are covered.
Other Pleasure Crafts
We are happy to quote for any sea-going vessel. Apart from RIBs, Yachts, Motor Cruisers etc., we also insure higher value boats such as ‘Grand Banks’ ‘Nordhavn’ etc which are regularly used outside the UK/ EIRE jurisdiction.In addition, we can insure boat builders, marinas, boat clubs etc. We are always keen to talk about all things boating, so give us a call today to discuss your needs.
