Boat insurance is often cheaper than car insurance. The cost will vary depending on the age and type of boat.
Specialist marine insurers are easy to locate via the internet, adverts in the waterway press or from your boat builder or broker.
You need third party insurance cover for at least £2,000,000. This will safeguard the owner or person in charge of the boat from claims made against you for injury or damage in the event that your boat is involved in an accident. You may also choose to take out a comprehensive policy to cover your own boat and crew.
