Great savings on your boat insurance premiums with Bishop Skinner Marine

Darker evenings, stormy weather and the slow changing colour of the leaves means autumn is here. For some boat owners, autumn is the time to lay up your boat in the run up to winter.

Whilst boats are laid up during winter, incidents such as collisions and groundings are significantly less compared to the rest of the year. However, winter brings a number of other perils for boat owners; winter storms can cause damage to boats, equipment and motor theft risks rise and fires caused by dehumidifiers and heaters left to run over the winter period are also an issue. So, it’s vital that boat owners don’t forget the importance of having correct insurance in place during the colder months.

Whether you own a dinghy or a yacht, a motor boat or a super yacht, Bishop Skinner can arrange comprehensive cover that gives you peace of mind, all year round. 

Bishop Skinner are proud to be insurance broker partners of the RYA since 1987. And, as an RYA member you benefit from a 10% discount on your insurance premiums.

For those of you lucky enough to escape to foreign seas for some winter sun, Bishop Skinner can also arrange single or multi-trip, yachtsman travel insurance. RYA gold members also receive enhanced levels of cover.
