"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.”

M Smith - Customer
“Appreciated the follow-up”
“I had a competitive quote the previous year but for various reasons decided to stay with my existing broker. Admiral re-contacted me this year (at my request) with another competitive quote and I decided to swap. Appreciated the follow-up and attention to detail.”

Frequently Asked Questions

On occasion. For instance, for participants of a long distance rally such as World ARC, we prefer a 1st January renewal date allowing for boats to be in St Lucia at the start of the policy and in South Africa when the policy is due for renewal.

It’s perfectly normal for blue water cruisers to be unclear on their cruising plans, particularly in the early stages of a 2-3 year extended voyage. We suggest that if you’re uncertain which areas you need to cover for, opt for a more limited range with an option for extending. This way, you’ll know how much extra premium is required so you can budget accordingly.

Yes. We’re happy to accommodate changes to cruising area or any other aspect of your policy at any time during the year. Adjustments may result in an additional premium, but we never charge administrative fees for mid-term changes.

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.
