What Does Third Party Boat Insurance Cover (and What It Doesn't!)

If you are looking at boat insurance, then you will likely have had to consider third-party liability insurance at the very least. Even though boat insurance is not a legal requirement in the UK, it is highly recommended – as many marinas will not accept your boat without any least some form of cover. At the absolute least, third party liability insurance is a wise idea. With more and more insurance claims being made every day, it is always best to ensure that your vessel is protected. So, what is third party liability insurance, and how does it work?

Third-party liability insurance covers you if there is any damage caused to other boats. This type of boat insurance policy should also cover you if the damage caused any physical harm. It will cover the boat owner, crew, and even guests. In total, it will cover:

  • Injuries to the third party
  • Damages to them and/or their vessel
  • Death to the third party

So, what doesn’t third party insurance cover, and what affects the cost of the insurance?

What Is Excluded from Third Party Boat Insurance?

Even though third party cover does protect a great deal, naturally, there are certain things that are excluded from the insurance and that will render the damage uncovered.

For example, even though the policy covers damage to a third party, that only means accidental damage. If it is proven that the cause of the problem was due to malicious damage, then the claims will not be valid or authorised.

Similarly, if it is proven that the damage was caused by wilful misconduct, then the insurance will not cover the damage costs.

Unlike other boat insurance policies (such as fully comp, for example), third party insurance will not cover fire or theft. In order to have those covered, you will need to pay for an additional premium.

Given that fires and theft are more common in cars (and so are generally covered in car insurance), many boat owners do not see the point in having fire and theft covered on their boats, especially as they are not required in most marinas. The choice is yours, of course.

What Factors Affect Third Party Boat Insurance Cost?

From the get-go, it is essential to understand that in order to find the best deals for third party insurance, you will need to compare boat insurance from company to company.

However, generally speaking, there are a few common points for most companies that will affect the cost of your insurance, such as:

Your on-board equipment

Having reliable, present safety equipment on your boat can significantly help you reduce the cost of your boat insurance. Things such as GPS, depth finders, radar, etc, will help to better protect yourself and others aboard your ship, as well as protecting those around you, which will in turn help to reduce the cost of your insurance.

Same-company deals

Sometimes, companies will offer a discount for clients who already have insurance policies with them, be they for cars or other vehicles, homes, etc. Therefore, it could be worth looking at your existing insurance company and enquiring about a discount for your third party insurance policy.

No prior boat insurance claims

As is the case with car insurance, your rates will go up if you have a history of claims. If your boat insurance policies have not been previously claimed upon, then the chances are that your third party boat insurance will be cheaper than it would be if you had.

Your age

Again, the same goes for certain car insurance companies, as your age can significantly impact your insurance policy rate. Generally speaking, the older you are, the more mature the company is likely to consider you to be. Therefore, they consider you to be more responsible and will, in turn, reduce your boat insurance costs.

Boating experience

Whether you have a licence or even have previously owned a similarly sized or even bigger boat will help determine your boat insurance cost. Suppose you have no experience navigating a vessel or have never even owned one (or at least one of the same size or bigger than the one that you are insuring now), then the insurance company will likely give you a higher cost for your boat insurance.

Summary

Given that there is no compulsory insurance for a boat owner in the UK right now, it can be easy to assume that it’s not necessary. However, the benefits that come with ensuring that you and your vessel are covered are essential.

Many marinas and rivers in the UK are tightly regulated and insist that boat owners have at least third party insurance. Therefore, it is wise to have at least this kind of boat or yacht insurance, and at best, a fully comprehensive policy to cover even the most expensive parts of your vessel

Remember to always compare boat insurance online – so you can ensure the details of your policy are to your standard and are at the best price for your needs.

Do you require Professional Indemnity Insurance?

What is professional indemnity insurance?

Professional indemnity insurance is sometimes referred to as PI insurance. It is a form of protection against compensation owed to a client. Compensation can vary depending on the type of claim as well as the severity. A professional indemnity policy will reduce the financial impact on your business by allowing you to recover losses from compensation claims made against you.

What does professional indemnity insurance cover?

Depending on policy coverage you may receive cover for causing a financial loss, or reputational damage, to a customer for:

  • Professional Negligence – this may be due to a mistake on your part, or incorrect advice or information provided to a customer that results in them suffering a financial loss. It may also include your client overrunning on their budget and making a compensation claim against you.
  • Legal Costs – including compensation payments awarded to the defendant. Your defence costs are also paid, including legal fees.
  • Breach of Confidentiality – including sharing information without permission, or infringing any copyrighted material, trademarks, or intellectual property rights.
  • Bodily Injury – if a client is injured due to your negligence.
  • Property Damage – when a building or its contents are damaged due to negligent work.
  • Acts of Defamation – such as libellous or slanderous statements made about a client.
  • Loss or Damage to Goods or Information – loss or damage to stock, equipment, or other belongings, as well as information which could include documents or data..

If you own your own business cover may also extend to include your employees.
Professional indemnity insurance is provided on a claims made basis meaning it will only cover you for claims made during the time you’re insured.

Do I need professional indemnity insurance?

Not every business requires professional indemnity insurance, and it isn’t a legal requirement. Usually, this type of cover is required by businesses or individuals that offer knowledge, skills, or advice as part of their work. Some professionals will need to have professional indemnity insurance if they want to be a member of their professional body, or their industry may have regulations that require this cover. These professionals within the marine industry can include:

  • Designers
  • Engineers
  • Business Consultants
  • Educators & Training Providers
  • Coaches & Trainers
  • Surveyors

If you need more advice about the impact of Professional Indemnity on your business, call the experts at Velos.

What is Directors & Officers Liability Insurance?

Directors and officers (D&O) insurance policies provide liability cover for company managers to protect them from claims which may arise from the decisions and actions taken as part of their regular duties.

Any allegations of wrongdoing need to be investigated and defended, and this can come with a significant amount even if the case does not reach court. This means directors and officers personal finances are at risk, so it’s essential companies provide protection through directors and officers (D&O) liability insurance.

What is covered under Directors & Officers Liability insurance?

The main purpose of a D&O policy is to provide financial protection for managers against the consequences of actual or alleged “wrongful acts” when acting in the scope of their managerial duties. The D&O policy will pay for defence costs and financial losses. In addition, extensions to many D&O policies also cover costs for managers generated by administrative and criminal proceedings or during investigations by regulators or criminal prosecutors.

Who is covered under Directors & Officers Liability insurance?

All current, future, and past directors and officers of a company and its subsidiaries are covered under a D&O policy, which can also include non-executive directors. Cover is usually taken out and paid for by the company.

The Reassurance of Directors & Officers Liability insurance

Directors and officers insurance covers costs associated with the defence of an allegation of a wrongful act. This means it takes away the financial risks faced by directors and officers, giving them protection should an allegation or claim be made against them. Considering that even simple investigations can cost thousands purchasing directors and officers makes financial sense.

What is a wrongful act?

This could be a breach of trust, breach of duty, neglect, misleading statement, error, or wrongful trading, committed or attempted by a director or officer whilst acting in this capacity on behalf of the company.

Why are individuals vulnerable?

  • Legal liability is shifting away from companies and towards personal liability.
  • Regulators are now more proactive in investigating companies.
  • Employees know their employment rights and are increasingly likely to pursue legal action..

If you need more advice about the impact of Directors & Officer’s Liability on your business, call the experts at Velos.

Does Homeowners Insurance Cover Boats? Is Home Insurance Enough?

When looking for a boat insurance policy, boat owners often wonder whether their boat is covered by their homeowners insurance.

So, does homeowners insurance cover boats?

In this blog we explain the liability coverage of homeowners insurance policies vs boat insurance policies and whether it’s a better idea to take out a dedicated boat insurance policy.

Do I Need Separate Insurance for My Boat?

Boats have a high recovery and replacement cost and come with their own risks. So, insuring them makes sense.

You may find that your homeowners insurance policy or car insurance provides a degree of cover, but there are lots of good reasons for taking out a dedicated boat insurance policy or personal watercraft insurance.

Will My Home Contents Insurance Cover My Boat?

While your boat is stored at your home it may be covered – up to a certain value – by your homeowners insurance policy.

Home insurers, for the most part, do not have any particular expertise in insuring watercraft.

So, you will find that you have limited coverage that is not tailored to your needs.

And if you are in the unfortunate position of needing to claim for damage or an accident to your boat, you may be getting help from someone who does not have a full understanding of what has happened and what your needs are.

It is certainly worth calling up your home insurance company or provider and asking them whether your boat is covered.

But specialist boat or watercraft insurance will give you better insurance coverage, better service and better peace of mind than homeowner’s insurance.

It will provide coverage when your boat is on the water, in a marina or in a boatyard, too rather than the very limited coverage that home insurance policies provide.

Will My Car Insurance Cover My Boat?

While you’re towing your boat to the water, it may be covered by your car or auto insurance if you’ve made appropriate arrangements.

Note that some motor insurances have restrictions about the length of boat you can tow in your boat trailer and are usually limited to small boats.

It’s best to call up and ask before you set out.

Do I Need Boat Insurance?

You probably do need boat insurance, particularly if we’re talking about a larger boat with a high replacement cost.

Insurance may also be a condition of navigating certain waters or taking part in organised sailing activities.

So not having boat insurance can be quite limiting.

Your home insurance might cover your boat while it’s stored at your home.

But your homeowners policy won’t cover your boat on the water, in transit or in a boat yard.

Personal liability coverage is almost always very limited when you have homeowners insurance cover and homeowners policies will have restrictions on many things such as boat size and certain vessels won’t be covered by your insurance provider at all.

Not ideal if you get into a boating accident and need yours or a third parties medical bills covered.

Boat insurance cover will almost always give you better liability insurance and personal property coverage than homeowners insurance.

Is Boat Insurance a Legal Requirement?

There is no UK law saying that you must insure your boat – but you will need, at the very least, third-party cover if you want to access the facilities at a marina or use a boatyard.

And you’ll also need it if you plan to navigate rivers and canals.

Am I Covered by The Previous Owner’s Boat Insurance?

If you buy a boat second-hand, the insurance previously held won’t apply any more. You need to take out a new policy for your boat.

How Do I Cut the Cost of My Boat Insurance?

You can reduce the cost of boat insurance by:

  • shopping around to find a policy that best meets your needs (NOTE: Velos won’t be on any price comparison websites because we offer a tailored insurance service)
  • building up a no claims bonus
  • taking some training (particularly if you are a new boat owner).

How Much Does Boat Insurance Cost?

The cost of boat insurance varies enormously according to what type of boat you wish to insure, where it is stored, your level of experience and competence and what activities you have planned on the water.

At Velos we provide tailored insurance, so the best way to find out the cost of your boat insurance is to use our form to get a quick quote.

Summary

Ultimately, while boat owners have limited coverage of their personal watercraft via their home insurance policy while it is on their property, we hope you’ve seen that a specific boat insurance policy is always the better option to have full coverage for your boat.

More is typically covered than would be on your home insurance policy, especially if a person’s boat is being used on the water, rather than sitting on your drive.

What steps should you take when your boat capsizes?

An accident in which a vessel sinks or capsizes is every boatowner’s nightmare. But it’s something that everyone who goes on the water should consider so that they know what to do if the worst happens.

Boating accidents can occur as a result of striking something – like floating debris or another vessel. They can be caused by bad weather, mechanical failure, poor maintenance, user error or simple bad luck.

Reduce the impact of a boating accident before you sail

The most important thing you can do to protect those you sail with is to insist on everyone wearing lifejackets (or personal floatation devices – PFDs) while on the water. Be sure to keep your PFDs in tip-top shape by checking them regularly, storing them well and replacing them as necessary. The RNLI has some helpful guidance about lifejackets.

Make sure your boat has the right level of insurance. Before you set sail think about whether the coverage you have is right for the activities you have planned. The right insurance policy will help with the costs of recovery and repair – but if you’ve got the wrong coverage, then you may find yourself paying for more than you otherwise might have. If you want to check your coverage with Velos, get in touch on +44 (0)20 7929 4058.

Keep your vessel in good repair. Take steps to maintain your watercraft to a good standard. This will reduce the chances of an accident.

Carry a communication device. Look into the different options, including handheld VHF; personal locator beacon; EPIRB; SART.

Talk with your passengers and crew about what to do when things go wrong. It might put a bit of a dampener on the launch – but it’s a conversation that could save lives.

What happens when a boat starts to sink?

A boat can start to sink very quickly once it starts to take on water. So, make sure everyone is wearing a lifejacket.

You will want to have your communication device and your ditch bag handy in case you need to evacuate.

Once everyone is as safe as they can be, call for help. The coastguard will want to know your location, boat name, number of people and situation. They may also ask how long you can stay afloat.

While you wait for help to arrive, start work on some self-help. It may be possible to plug a leak with anything soft like bags of food or bedding. Think about whether you can shift the weight in the boat to raise the leak above the water line. Use bilge pumps to remove the water, and think about whether beaching the boat is an option, as this will prevent the boat from sinking.

What should I do if my boat capsizes?

Stay with a capsized vessel. It is easier for rescuers to spot a vessel in open water than the head of a swimmer. You can also stay dryer and warmer for longer, even in a listing vessel.

What should I do if my boat collides with another vessel?

In the event of two boats colliding, you must stop and identify yourself, your vessel, your home port, your ports of origin and destination. You are obliged to help the people on board the other boat – as long as it’s safe to do so.

You will need to report the collision if there are extensive damages or the seaworthiness of the vessel is affected or if it’s resulted in death or injury that requires more than first aid.

If you are racing: protest the third party if they do not accept the penalty.

Finally, you should get witness statements and details from everyone involved.

What should I do once I’ve been rescued from a sinking yacht?

Once help arrives and you and your passengers are safe, you may be able to negotiate a tow if your boat is not completely sunk. Take steps to safeguard the vessel, then let your insurers know. They can advise on salvage and repairs and will tell you what estimates to get. Gather witness statements, and details of any other vessels involved.

At Velos, our claims are managed by trained, UK-based claims handlers who are experienced in marine insurance.

What should you do if you get stranded on the water?

Dead batteries, soft grounding, empty fuel tank… Whatever the reason, your boat is dead in the water, or unable to attain a good speed and you need to get back to a safe harbour or mooring for repairs. A breakdown on water is stressful wherever it occurs, and it will certainly be expensive. But insurance coverage can help reduce the impact.

Do I have to pay to get my boat towed?

The cost of getting your boat towed to safety will vary by the distance you need to go and the conditions. You may be lucky and find someone to help you for free – but you may have to pay, and it is decent to give a donation if a voluntary organisation comes to your aid. The price will depend on the time of day (according to the marine breakdown service SeaStart, 80% of pleasure craft breakdowns occur at the weekend or in the evening when recovery may be more expensive).

Many boat owners opt to pay for an annual breakdown and recovery service. That way they can be sure of priority attention and a predictable bill.

How do I call for assistance when my boat is broken down in the water?

In the UK, at sea, if you don’t have a breakdown policy, and you can’t fix your craft, you can put out a pan-pan call on your radio, or contact the coastguard on channel 16. The coastguard will ask another boat in the area to help you. If there is an immediate risk, make a mayday call.

On an inland waterway, in an emergency when lives or property are at risk, call 999. The Canal and River Trust has boat service listings to help you find a nearby boatyard that can help with a tow.

What information should I give the coastguard during a breakdown?

Ideally, you should be able to give an accurate position. This shouldn’t be much of a problem on inland waterways. But at sea it is very difficult to judge distance by eye, and interpretations of ‘just off’ or ‘not far from’ can vary. Make sure your radio is GPS-enabled so you can get your position quickly and easily.

As well as your location, you should also tell them what type of craft you are in, and briefly explain your problem.

Do I have to accept the tow company’s fee?

If you want to get back to a safe harbour from a breakdown at sea, it’s as well to check where whoever comes to your aid is towing you to, and what compensation they want. In some cases it may be enough to agree to buy them a beer, or pay for fuel, but a professional boat breakdown service will send you a bill.

On an inland waterway, it may be possible to shop around, but if you do not take action to move your boat you risk the waterway authority acting on your behalf.

How do I get ready to have my boat towed?

While you wait for your rendezvous with the rescue boat, set up lines and fenders. The skipper may have their own lines and fenders, so don’t deploy yours until you are asked to. Yachts should lower their sails, unless they think they might need to manoeuvre before the tow-boat arrives. The skipper may try to call your phone, or contact you by radio to let you know help is coming. So keep an eye on your communications devices.

How much does it cost to get my boat towed to my home mooring?

Many watercraft breakdown policies will include recovery to the nearest safe mooring or haven. This might not be your home mooring. You will have to pay extra if you want your boat taken to your home mooring, and you may not be able to arrange this immediately.

What should I do once my watercraft has been towed to safety?

Once you are in a safe haven and your craft is protected from further damage, contact your insurance company and find out what the next steps are.

Will my boat insurance cover me if I need towing?

At Velos we tailor our policies to our customer’s specific needs. Contact us today to find out how we can help you with pleasure craft insurance.

Practical Boat Owner: British Sailing Team sailor Elliot Willis is cycling 250 miles this September for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity: ‘Because they got me to this point where I feel I can do it.’

 

The Team GB-selected sailor who was forced to drop out of the Rio 2016 Games line-up after being diagnosed with colorectal cancer is getting back on his bike for charity.

Elliot says: ‘I was diagnosed with colorectal cancer in November 2015. Due to the amazing doctors, nurses and surgeons at the Royal Marsden and the world class treatment I have been and continue to receive, I am starting to live my life again, and feel able to support this amazing trust by doing something that I used to enjoy so much.

‘Let’s see how it goes as I haven’t had the opportunity to do much riding yet. Thank you for your support.”

Last December it was confirmed by the British Sailing Team that following medical tests, 470 Olympic campaigner Elliot had unfortunately been diagnosed with bowel cancer.

Willis, 32, from Sevenoaks was among the first athletes in any sport to be selected to Team GB for the Rio 2016 Games, alongside 2012 silver medallist Luke Patience.

Elliot said at the time: ‘It’s still my dream to win Olympic gold but right now my focus and energy needs to be on getting better.’

Luke went on to regain selection for the Games with crew Chris Grube and achieved fifth place overall after a whirlwind eight month campaign together.

Meanwhile Elliot has been undergoing ‘world class treatment’ and now wishes to undertake the challenge in support of the ‘amazing doctors, nurses and surgeons at the Royal Marsden.’ who have ‘got me to this point where I feel I can do it.’

Elliot added: ‘The Royal Marsden have been amazing and their pioneering work has led to me receiving a newer type of treatment, immunotherapy (Pembrolizumab), for my type of cancer. The approval for this was made possible by BUPA through UK Sport and I cannot thank them enough for their continuous support on multiple levels, and for enabling and allowing me to receive this new treatment. I hope it can help other patients in the future.

‘I’ve have set up a fundraising page to raise money for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, so they can continue to do the great work they do, promote early diagnosis, provide the very best treatment and care for cancer patients in the best way they can.’

Yachting Boating World: The yacht suffered major damage after it drifted onto the rock armour at Rosslare Harbour in Co. Wexford, Ireland. The RNLI rescued the two people on board.

 

Rosslare RNLI launched its all-weather lifeboat at 3.45am on 14 September following a distress call from a yacht with two people on board.

The eight-metre vessel had suffered engine failure and drifted onto the rock armour at Rosslare Harbour.

The crew were seeking shelter from the weather, which had worsened to a strong force seven north westerly gale. The RNLI says the wind was blowing into the mouth of Rosslare Harbour.

When the lifeboat crew arrived, they found that one of the yacht’s crew had been able to leave the boat and make it onto the rocks.

However, due to high waves and the rocks, it was not possible to attach a towline to the yacht from the lifeboat.

Two of the RNLI crew successfully managed to get the remaining occupant off the boat from the land side of the harbour. The lifeboat remained offshore providing cover.

The couple were brought to the lifeboat station to get warm and recover from their ordeal. They were also provided with dry clothes. They are currently being looked after by villagers at Rosslare Harbour.

Speaking after the incident, the Rosslare Harbour RNLI volunteer lifeboat press officer, Jamie Ryan, praised the efforts of the lifeboat crew.

“It was a challenging rescue in the early hours as the boat was getting dashed against the rocks and we needed to get the two crew members to safety,” he said.

“The best way to recover them was from the land side, with the lifeboat providing cover from the sea,” continued the press officer.

“The boat has suffered major damage, but the two people are recovering well from the incident. The couple, who are not from Ireland, are being looked after by the people of Rosslare,” concluded Ryan.

Yachting Boating World: The Canal & River Trust has announced that a survey amongst boaters has shown demand for pre-bookable moorings on London’s waterways.

 

The Canal and River Trust says short-stay, pre-bookable moorings are in demand from boaters visiting London.

It is now trialling pre-bookable, short-stay mooring spots at Rembrandt Gardens, where the Regent’s Canal meets the Paddington Arm.

The trust carried out a survey over the summer as part of work towards its mooring strategy for the capital.

It found that perceived pressure on mooring space was putting some boaters off visiting London.

Of the 27% of respondents who hadn’t visited the capital by boat, 85% said it was because they weren’t certain they’d find a place to moor.

Those who took part in the survey also wanted an increased range of mooring options, with 59% of all respondents saying they’d consider paying for a reserved mooring.

Of the 1,400 boaters surveyed, 73% had visited London by boat, of which 45% had visited in 2016 and 18% in 2015. 10% had visited before 2010.

Most visiting boaters moored on general towpath moorings (64%) or visitor moorings (63%), with 14% stopping on paid private moorings.

59% of respondents said they would consider paying for a reserved mooring, with most boaters saying they’d pay £10 a night.

One of the most important aspects of cruising into central London was security.Having a safe and secure place to moor was important to 92% of respondents, while having a guaranteed place to moor was important to 74%. 63% wanted to moor close to local services, attractions or transport links, while 50% thought it was important to moor close to boat facilities.

The boating strategy & engagement manager at the trust, Matthew Symonds, said he was pleased that boaters got in touch to share their views, both positive and negative, of boating in London.

“Our job is to manage the finite space on the canals so that all boaters have a fair chance of finding somewhere to moor up, and in popular places like parts of London this becomes even more important,” he explained.

“It looks like being able to guarantee a mooring spot will give many boaters peace of mind and encourage them to visit. Taking this into account we’re planning to trial pre-bookable short-stay mooring spots at Rembrandt Gardens which will begin later in the year. We will be announcing more details soon,” he continued.

Symonds said the trust had also received a lot of feedback on how to improve boating in London.

“It’s no surprise to see that boaters want to see more facilities, and we’re doing what we can to find suitable places to put them. Boaters also want to see more mooring spaces and rings and we’ve worked hard to get funding to install around 3, 500 metres of rings over the past two years, creating or improving around 195 mooring spots,” he explained.

“We will continue looking for opportunities like this. Also high on the list were requests to reduce overstaying and better enforcement of the rules. We’re going through the comments carefully and they will prove really useful in the development of our wider London mooring strategy, which seeks to meet the needs of boaters and others who enjoy these historic, popular waterways,” concluded Symonds.

The survey ran from 30 June to 26 August, 2016.

The Canal and River Trust will also be carrying out further engagement work including surveys of boaters and other stakeholders in London over the coming months to help inform the wider London mooring strategy.

“As well as the more relaxing activities with our fashion shows and fabulous bars, the show provides a host of opportunities to get out on the water for free,” he adds.

Ladies Day is sponsored by Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth, one of the UK’s leading private wealth firms.

A partner in the company, Ursula Danagher, said: “Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth is proud to be sponsoring Ladies Day at the Southampton Boat Show. It is one of the most prestigious events on the south coast and highlights our commitment to the region.”

“We are already one of the biggest private client businesses in the UK and sponsoring the show highlights our plans to grow our business in the south of England,” she added.
