Our fishing boat insurance policies aren’t listed on any price comparison site, as we create coverage that is tailor-made to each customer’s requirements and their individual fishing boats.

As such our fishing boat insurance policy is a fully comprehensive, all risks product, based on an agreed value which is shown on the policy paperwork, so if your fishing boat is lost, this is what you will get back for your vessel.

The policy covers you for, amongst other things, theft, accidental damage and Salvage charges.

It also includes, as standard, Third Party narrowboat Liability up to GBP 5m and Legal Expenses.
