THE YACHTLINER March 2014
Yachtline's newsletter for clients
Sunshine, daffodils, light evenings, and there is an outbreak of scraping and polishing in marinas all around the UK. It's a real pleasure to see yachtspeople anticipating all the fun of taking to the water again and getting all their kit into shape in good time.
Yachtline's first insured boat in Florida worth over $1m
We were delighted a short time ago to confirm cover for our first client in Florida with a boat valued at over $1m. She's a 55 foot catamaran cruising in Florida and the Bahamas. It sounds wonderful, we can almost hear the water lapping peacefully on the hull......but no, that's not for us, unfortunately. For us, it's back to work on all those lovely policy renewals.
No more surveys for boats up to 27 feet long
Yachtline is now able to insure boats up to 27 feet long cruising in Europe, Scandinavia and the Mediterranean WITHOUT a survey report. That's a significant potential saving for clients and particularly welcome to owners of lower value boats. Do please tell your small-boating friends that we?ll be delighted to provide a quote for cover.
Word of Mouth is always the best way
Isn't it great when a recommendation leads to a win all round. Our client, let's call him Richard sold his boat and recommended Yachtline to the new owner, Brad (thank you Richard). So here we are, win-win all round. Brad has sensibly priced insurance for his new boat, Richard has some premium returned and Yachtline has a new client. Couldn't be better!
Lightning strike delay minimised
Imagine our client approaching the Panama Canal on his round-the-world sailing trip. Lightning strikes and he loses all his electronic kit. Despair sets in at the thought of the delay, but with prompt payment of the claim by Yachtline, and replacement electronics he is still aiming to reach Australia before the end of 2014. He declared himself 'very happy with Yachtline's service'.
