Why choose Admiral Yacht Insurance?

Admiral Yacht Insurance was launched in 1991 when its Boat Insurance Policy was created. Managing Director Robert Holbrook who was previously a partner in a firm of London Insurance Brokers, and a keen yachtsman himself, recognised the need for flexible Yacht Insurance that met the needs of both sailing yacht and motor yacht owners.

We specialise in Sailing Yacht Insurance and Motor Boat Insurance for boats based in the UK, Northern European waters, the Mediterranean, South East Asia and the Caribbean as well as bluewater cruisers undertaking long distance voyages. Our long-term involvement with the World Cruising Club has given us a wealth of knowledge and experience for insuring ocean crossings.

We are committed to providing the very highest standards of personal service. Our clients like us so much that not only do they stay with us for many years, but they also go on to recommend us to their friends and family, which is great.

I approached Admiral because they came recommended as a company which could provide a robust insurance policy which would be suitable for my somewhat ambitious global sailing programme. I am very happy with the insurance cover that Admiral provides and I've been with them since 2004. So far I have not had to claim yet! I know Admiral to be an excellent choice for long distance sailing yachts and they were also recommended by Discovery Yachts. The annual premium is surprisingly competitive for such a comprehensive policy.
