"Handled with ease"
“An unusual set of circumstances due to distance and awaiting a survey report were dealt with without any problems at all. A smooth change of vessel handled with professional ease and helpfulness. I have used Admiral Insurance for a good while, including several long distance voyages including a circumnavigation which all were handled with ease.”

Mr Emery - Customer
“Great service, good value marine insurance”
“Cristelle helped me to insure our new (to us) 44 year old boat, a SHE 36'. An old boat always has a few wrinkles and Cristelle made the process easy and straightforward. This is the second boat we have insured with Admiral Marine and I wouldn't go anywhere else. You get good value for money and an excellent, personal service. What more could you want from marine insurance?”

Mrs Ginny Kidd - Customer
“Returning to Admiral”
“We returned to Admiral after a short hiatus. As per our previous experience, the service was efficient, effective and met all our requirements. We would be hard pressed to choice another insurer over Admiral. Many thanks once again.”

“Appreciated the follow-up”

Frequently Asked Questions

Your policy covers the liabilities of your skipper and crew to third parties while they are operating your boat, but it does not include cover for liabilities of paid crew. That said, we can arrange separate Employers Liability insurance for you with a specialist provider.

Our standard policy allows you to take part in any race or regatta, but does not cover for the rig unless it is damaged by collision, stranding, sinking or fire. The hull is covered, but with a double excess during racing. Additional cover for the rig is available while racing, and the cost depends on replacement costs and the amount and type of racing. 


Contact us as soon as possible to inform us of any changes. We’re happy to accommodate changes at any time during your year, whether that be changing contact details or an aspect of your policy. Adjustments may result in an additional premium, but we never charge administrative fees for mid-term changes.

We have chosen to remain a specialist insurer and can’t quote for commercial vessels or boats valued over £1million. However we can refer you directly to Hayes Parsons Insurance Brokers, our award-winning sister company, who may be able to help.
