Start the new sailing season the right way

As we look forward to the arrival of a new sailing season, there are a few things that are important to consider. From preparing your boat after being laid up for the winter, to checking your safety equipment. It is also important to ensure you have the right insurance in place for the season ahead.

Bishop Skinner Marine have worked alongside the RYA for more than 30 years, providing boat insurance that suits the needs of our members. Whether you own a dinghy or a yacht, cover can be arranged to suit your requirements, and as an RYA member you can enjoy a number of additional benefits including discounted premiums.

Bishop Skinner Marine boat insurance could provide protection from accidental damage, including fire and theft, as well as up to £5 million third party liability cover (depending on your policy), which offers protection should a third party make a claim against you for damage caused to themselves or their property. Many marinas require a minimum amount of third-party liability cover to use their facilities, so this is definitely something to consider.

When buying insurance, we hope you never have to use it, but should the worst happen and you need to make a claim, Bishop Skinner Marine will work hard to resolve your claim as quickly as possible. With 24/7 claims support, it is a goal of theirs to get you back out on the water as soon as they can.

If you have any questions about an existing policy, or would like a quote, please contact the Bishop Skinner Marine team by calling 0800 783 8057 or send an email to, and they will get back to you.
