Yacht Insurance | UK-Based Pleasure Craft Insurance | Velos

Yacht Insurance & Pleasure Crafts Cover


Owning your own boat is a dream for many, but our competitive, all-risk yacht insurance and pleasure craft insurance policies can help turn that dream into a reality.  As leading marine insurance experts with over 50 years’ experience in the industry, let us create the best possible policy to suit your individual needs from our panel of first class insurers.

Our policies aren’t listed on any price comparison site, as we create coverage that is tailor-made to each customer’s requirements.

Our all-risk yacht insurance policies include as standard everything you could ask for, including covering your yacht or pleasure craft against:

  • Fire, lightning, explosion
  • Theft, malicious damage or vandalism
  • Accidental loss or damage
  • Personal accident cover
  • Third party cover for incidents

Our competitive third party liability and fully comprehensive boat insurance policies not only insure the boat and associated property (such as water skis, personal belongings and toys), but also includes liability cover for you as the boat owner, and personal accident insurance for emergency medical expenses for yourself and your guests should the worst happen.

Should you wish to race your yacht, we can also include specific coverage for the risks involved in racing, just let us know when asking for a quote so we can make sure all your bases are covered.

Get no claims discount on your yacht insurance policy

We also offer a No Claims Discount scheme which gives you a 25% discount on your policy (available to both existing and new customers, subject to proof) and if, unfortunately, your boat is damaged whilst in a marina, your No Claims Discount will be unaffected, and we won’t charge you an excess. All of this at no extra charge for boat owners on your yacht policy.

Claims handling

If you do have to make a claim, you can rest assured that our UK, London-based, helpful and efficient claims handling team will be able to take you through the process, painlessly and worry-free.

All of our marine insurance claims are handled in-house on behalf of our world-renowned underwriters, giving speedy and effective resolution to all claims on boats and yachts.
