Thanks -

Sounds fair, if not good, although depending on what value you assign to your boat I think you could get fully comprehensive for about the same price. Try Bishop Skinner.

I have just insured my fleet!11 of Merlin, RS 400 and Enterprise with Red Insurance for a total Prem of £224. Noble's Quote for the Merlin alone was £170.(Reason for both RS and Merlin is my club only sails handicap Wednesday nights and occasional trophy races)

Hi Mike

There was a thread run a while back regarding boat insurance. Our Web man might be able to find the link, or you could trawl through the forum to find it.

The £42 you have been quoted by Craft Insure with ncd is right for 3rd party. I doubt if you find anything cheaper!

Just bought my first Merlin, NSM2 worth £1800. Not owned a boat for 8 years so no NCD. Bishop Skinner quoted a very reasonable £72 fully comp. This covers the boat on the water and in transit, along with the trailer, 2million liability and full race cover. I have phoned 5 companies so far and this is the best quote.

Red Insurance is worth calling, especially if you have a fleet.
