Cover is automatically extended for up to 30 days in Europe. Your marine insurance will also cover your stern drives and outboard motors whilst in use.

FISHING BOAT INSURANCE FAQs

Please find below details of the questions usually asked by our fishing boat customers.  If you cannot see the answer to a question you have please do not hesitate to call our marine insurance team on 0344 892 1321


Q. Am I covered if I take my fishing boat outside the UK?
A. You are covered for up to 30 days whilst in Europe. If you have the opportunity to take your boat out for longer, please speak to one of our specialist advisors to ensure that you get cover for the period you require.

Q. My policy has an excess, does it increase if I damage my boat’s underwater stern gear?
A. If you choose our Platinum cover there is no increased excess for this type of claim; the excess is double for claims with Gold cover.

Q. Do I need a specific wheel clamp for my trailer?
A. Your marine dealer or chandler should be able to recommend a secure product. We do not insist on specific manufacturers, but it should be a recognised make, preferably with a "Sold Secure" logo.

Q. I have a second home in Spain. Can I leave my fishing boat there all year round?
A. As long as you tell us and we approve the security arrangements, your boat will be covered – this would usually attract an increased premium.

Q. What's the policy excess?
A. You can choose the excess you want to meet your needs. Just ask us for details.

Q. Where can I find more information about payment options, including paying for my fishing boat insurance by direct debit.
