How you use your boat will affect your risk and when your boat is your home, even more is at stake. We’re here to make sure you have the financial security you need to live your life, hassle-free.

With permanent mooring in a marina, we’ll assess the risks at your specific mooring location – taking into consideration security, amenities and how often you take your boat out on the water. You can rest assured you have the cover you need while not paying more than you need to.

As a continuous cruiser, we understand your specific set of circumstances. Moving along every 14 days means you’ll be mooring on towpaths all around the UK, sometimes in unfamiliar neighbourhoods and canals. We’re here to make sure you have the help you need should you run into trouble.
