Helpful Claims Advice

  • When loss or damage occurs you should act as if uninsured. This may seem unusual advice but it is most important that in the event of any incident involving your vessel, you must take all reasonable steps to minimise the loss.

Own Damage

  • Take immediate action to safeguard and protect any property from further damage or deterioration (this may include first aid to the engine).
  • Enlist help (professional if necessary) if immediately required to safeguard and protect your boat and equipment.
  • Try to agree a realistic charge or fee if a tow is required before acceptance.
  • Retain and look after all broken/torn/damaged items for inspection.

Damaged by a Third Party

  • If racing, protest the Third Party if they did not accept a penalty. Obtain witness(es) statements.
  • Obtain details of boat type/class/number/name/club and any witness(es) details in addition to the name(s) and address(es) of the helm and boat owner.
  • Road Accidents - obtain details of the driver, vehicle and insurer and any witness(es), and/or call the Police to the scene. If possible write down all the details and make a sketch of the site.

Damage to Third Parties

  • If a Third Party wishes to hold you liable for damage, provide them with our details, your name, policy number and boat details. You should acknowledge any correspondence and pass it on to us immediately.
  • Do not make any admission of liability and do not make any offer of payment.


  • Any theft or malicious damage should be reported to the Police promptly.
  • Keep a note of the Police Crime Reference Number.
  • We will also need the serial numbers of any engines, tenders etc.
  • Notify your club and local harbour master with full details of the theft/vandalism.
  • This Helpful Claims Advice section is intended to provide some guidance should you have to submit a claim under your policy. It does not form part of any policy wording or give any indication of acceptance of a claim

Useful Information

  • Please remember that the repair contract is between you and the contractor. Any instructions regarding either repair or replacement must come from you. However you must seek our agreement in the first place.
  • The claim may be subject to deductions in addition to any policy excess and the clauses in your policy wording should be read carefully so that you are fully aware of these (e.g. sails, covers and outboard motors).
