Default Blue water insurance

Can anybody tell me of good or bad insurance companies that cater for bluewater sailing. i live in England at present but as soon as i mention bluewater they all shy away.

We really like our insurance co. We had a VERY large claim this year as we lost our mast and a chain plate and they were more than fair with us.

International Marine Insurance Service


Good Luck,

Graham, we too are insured thru IMIS via their proprietary coverage, known as the 'Jackline' policy. However, it is only available to U.S. boats and so IMIS will try to source coverage thru a range of carriers like any other brokerage. The main benefits of using IMIS is that they only represent 'A' rated carriers with whom they've had good claims coverage (to your benefit) and the knowledge they bring to insuring blue water boats, which is significant but not exclusive to them.

For European boats seeking BW coverage, many owners end up using Pantaenius (did I spell that correctly?) as their rates are reasonable and they enjoy a generally favorable repuation. You might start with them.
