    Question Spanish Insurance

    My UK insurance company is increasing my premium (no claims on it at all for 10 years) yet again by quite a substantial amount and insisting on a survey (with UK accredited surveyor) since it has been 10 years since the last one.

    As my boat is based permanently in Spain, I was thinking about insuring it through a Spanish company. The boat is UK Part I registered and will stay so.

    Any experience? Recommendations?

    Is this a good idea?

    You might want to reconsider using that insurer. Did you do any research before you went with them?

    Thanks for that warning. I have just googl'ed and the results are not at all encouraging.

    I would get in touch with Barry at Y insurance - they are sensible, highly experienced and have the support of a lot on the forum.
    I changed to them a couple of years ago - not particularly to save money (though I think I did) - but just because they were good and understand what we, as yachtspeople, want.

    I talked with them, they wanted me to replace all the standing rigging.

    That is a bit of a bummer on your (lovely) yacht.
    If you think it is in good condition I would have a further chat with them and see what can be agreed. On mine they wanted something done and gave me generous time to do it, I didn't get round to it but discussed with them and they are fine. Depends on whether you have already had the discussion but if not, I would speak to Barry and explain your position.
    I wouldn't want to be within a million miles of the weather that might bring your rig down - I have seen what I believe to be your Captain Aubrey-style additional backstays or preventers !
