Regular Fishing Boat Insurance Queries

Do I Need Fishing Boat Insurance?

It’s a sensible question and since it is not a legal requirement on many waters, appropriate cover makes good sense. Firstly it'll protect your capital investment (plus if you have a mortgage on the vessel your lender may insist upon it) and secondly it'll protect against any potentially unlimited claim by a third party (e.g. for injury or damage caused by you/ your vessel).

Is Boat Insurance a Legal Requirement?

No, not in the UK, but you may need 3rd party cover to access private boatyards or marinas, alternatively is you have a boat mortgage the lender may insist upon this.

Can I Buy Insurance Online Immediately?

In most instances, yes. Abnormal vessel value, recent claims, vessel age above 25 years (without a recent survey), risky mooring locations and vessels undergoing major refit/ repair are the only major exceptions.

How Can I Reduce My Premium?

More risk AND a higher vessel valuation means higher premiums. Therefore first ensure your vessel valuation is accurate! Secondly, certain factors are statistically known to increase the risk of claims: non-private/ unprotected moorings, older vessels. Inevitably also fully comprehensive insurance (i.e. covering your and the other party's vessel instead of just a single vessel) costs more. You can also option for an increased excess.

What Does It Typically Cost?

We classify private fishing boats under the vessel category "dayboats", there are two maximum design speed categories (0-17 & 18-35 knots), listed below are the current prices
