Insurance - who do you use ?

A little cross posting but I'd like your input?

So getting close now.. the list is done for what I need to complete before Friday....and insurance is up there.

We use craftinsure for Waterlily at the moment. Costs us about £120 per year. I have just completed the on line quotation for Percy and it is coming out at £225 with a £150 excess, down to £191 with a £300 excess.

The other company I am drawn to is Towergate..... they give options:

The Breakdown option appeals as at the moment we are paying for RCR £155 for their silver cover.

I have just printed off the towergate policy docs so some bedtime reading.

I'd be interested in who you use and why?

We've used Towergate since we started, because they do a good contents policy; never had to claim, but they paid out to Tom Jones when Ben Harp trashed his half built boat.

Nev, Bruce is correct. Towergate paid our claim in full. We've re-insured with them. Funny old world as we've now been insured with them for two years and still haven't taken delivery of Waiouru :-)

Looks like Towergate will be getting the business. They seem to be well regarded and the docs are quite readable. Another tick on the list. Thanks for the responses

Hi Nev
We used Craftinsure for Caxton but moved to Towergate for Yarwood. Towergate has a good rep with boaters and fully grasped 'liveaboard' issues etc. Lesley
