Yacht and Motorboat Owners

Yacht and Motorboat Owners

Some problems are worth losing sleep over. Insurance needn’t be one of them.

Your boat may be your largest purchase besides your home. But it’s so much more than just an asset. At La Playa, we share your passion for getting afloat and we understand the time cost and inconvenience that insurance paperwork and claims can present.

That’s why we take the time so your time is spared. As Marine specialists, we can guide you through the decision-making process, providing personalised risk advice and protecting your precious downtime. We provide a human face to make sense of marine insurance – real people who work with you at your pace, providing as much (or as little) detail as you wish.

Every vessel has its quirks and personality, that is why we offer individualised cover no matter your draft.

  • Property: hull, machinery, war risks, tenders, personal effects and agreed value settlement 
  • People: personal accident cover for you and your guests, crew, medical and accident needs, legal expenses 
  • Liabilities: third party, general or UK flagged crew liability, water-skiing and water toys
  • Activities: planning passages out of cruising area, skipper chartering
Our “portfolio” approach allows you to combine your marine, home and vehicle insurance needs. This is no “bolt-on”: by streamlining specialist marine insurance with high net worth home and motor cover, we present an overall more attractive risk package to the insurer. This can mean better rates and time savings - just one payment and a single policy anniversary, minimising the possibilities for gaps in cover and maximising your peace of mind.

Have you considered the following...

  • What if your “market value” claim settlement leaves you out of pocket? Should you be looking at an “agreed value” basis?
  • Does your insurer have an approved repairer network?
  • Upgraded your boat recently? Have you made the necessary changes to insure crew liabilities?  This is especially important when sailing under a UK flag, where cover is a legal requirement.

We know you want to get afloat with as little fuss as possible, so we provide a human face to make sense of motorboat insurance – real people who work with you at your pace, providing as much (or as little) detail as you wish.
