THE YACHTLINER December 2015
Yachtline's newsletter for clients
Season's greetings! We hope that wherever you will be, afloat or ashore, that you will have a wonderful time at Christmas and new year. On a practical note, we have heard a few forecasts of severe weather this winter, so if your boat is laid up ashore, please remember to winterise the engine. It may be worth checking if your insurance applies any conditions when your boat is laid up, just to be on the safe side.
Yachtline provides cover for sailing the world
Yachtline has a growing number of customers setting off on long voyages, including those wonderful once-in-a-lifetime trips around the world. If you are thinking of taking off with your boat on a long adventure, do get in touch and we'll be happy to provide a quote.
Insurance Premium Tax Rise
Following the spring budget, UK IPT has risen substantially from 6% to 9.5%. While we do our best to provide the cover you need at a sensible premium, sadly, we have no control over the tax that is added. We hope you understand. It may be some small comfort for UK clients, that in other parts of Europe, even higher rates of insurance tax are common, up to 19%.
Yachtline helps educate our kids
Very indirectly, Yachtline is helping to broaden the education available to some children, by insuring the boats they use to learn to sail. The deputy Headmaster recently wrote to say 'Yachtline has been great for us.' It's not the kind of risk many insurers would be willing to take on, but we very happily provided the cover the school needed.
