How much is it to insure a yacht?

The price of yacht insurance will depend on the policy type or level that you choose. For example, a fully comprehensive policy will cost more than a third party only, albeit there will only be a couple of hundred pounds difference. As you get much better coverage with a fully comprehensive policy, it is wise to choose this cover type. 

For more accurate costs, please fill the enquiry form with more information on your policy requirements and a member of our team will be in touch. Alternatively, you can give us a call on 01948 820 000.

Do you need insurance for a yacht?

It is not a legal requirement to have yacht or boat insurance, however, many marinas will request that you have at least third-party level cover to use their facilities. Despite this, given the high value of yachts and the associated costs, it is highly recommended that you have a good policy in place so that you are protected in the case of any unforeseen events.
