Frequently Asked Questions

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 double excess during racing.

Your claim will be assessed on the basis of the ‘agreed value’ – the insured value stated on your policy schedule at that given time and in accordance with the terms of your policy.

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.

We don’t offer no claims bonus on any policy where the insured value exceeds £200,000 and/or where the boat is spending the majority of the policy period outside the boundary of UK and European waters.

Because we’re committed to offering the best personal service and tailored terms, we don’t believe in automatic renewals. Instead, we’ll offer you a renewal quote about a month before your policy is due to expire, and ask you whether there have been any changes to your requirements.

What Our
Clients Think

"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

“Admiral Marine made it easy”

“Admiral Marine made it easy for me to insure my boat. All correspondence was via email so no waiting in long phone queues, and all communication was very prompt. Would certainly recommend Admiral Marine.”
