Marine Insurance Sectors
We will always do our best to help as many businesses as we can. This includes, but is by no means limited to:
Private & Personal Craft
Our marine specialists will be glad to quote for a veritable fleet of pleasure craft from dinghies and rowing boats, to motor boats and speed boats, not forgetting narrow boats, barges, yachts, canoes, kayaks and jet skis.
Our marine trades cover can be extended to protect your business against the unique risks that face the industry. From chandlers to electricians, shipwrights to mechanics, or offshore oil riggers, if your trade is related to the water we’ll have a policy for you.
If you’re running charter vessels for divers or anglers, stern trawlers, wind farm supply vessels, netters or potters, in fact any waterborne vessel relating to your business, our marine specialists will be able to match an all risks policy to your specific needs.
Boat & Yacht Clubs
As with all our insurance cover, A-One’s specialist cover for boat clubs, sailing clubs and canoe clubs is all about you and the protection that’s right for you. Clubs cover can include property, vessels and the range of general liabilities required by law.

Your policy will be tailored to your needs. Some covers will be included as standard, others are optional and completely up to you if you take them out. Here are a few of the insurance covers that we will look at for you, to ensure you and your business is fully covered and risks are minimised – allowing you to focus on what you do best.

Our in-house claims department
Here at A-One, we benefit from an in-house claims department.

See what our clients think
Des in the Marine team looked after us from the start. Giving various policy options to cover our pride and joy! Nothing was too much trouble and she even highlighted something that we were paying extra for unnecessarily on our existing policy. We felt the integrity shown by A-One is something that’s hard to come by, which is why we changed to them – and we’ve never looked back!
