The Crash Test Boat

The ‘Crash Test Boat Series’ is an initiative launched by Yachting Monthly editor, Paul Gelder, back in 2011. The intention of the series is to replicate a wave of ‘controlled’ sailing disasters. We’ve been involved as a principal participant of the series for the past decade.

Why would Admiral trust a yacht to this lot?

We’ve seen all sorts of yachting disasters – from UK coastal dramas to mid-ocean calamities – and have dealt with many insurance clients who have fallen victim to the unexpected or unavoidable.

We’ve sponsored a series of ‘crash tests’ that were carried out by the daring folk at Yachting Monthly, to help promote safety and good seamanship.
