    Default Drascombe Longboat Insurance

    GJW have just quoted me 50% more than last year, despite no accidents or claims. Can anyone recommend a Drascombe insurer?

    Dunno about Drascombes, but you could try Craftinsure and Dinghyinsurance.com (who don't just do dinghies).

    Have you asked them why? My insurance was cheaper this year.

    French insurers are just as bad. My (compulsory) boat insurance has just come in and is up by 30% or so.
    This is across the board with all our other ones for the house and cars. Looking elswhere, with reputable outfits.. I can get it for far less. So a stiff letter going out ( to AXA). If they come back with a lower offer, my answer will be.. TOO LATE; You have racked up the premiums on the basis that I am a happy customer.
    I must be unusual that I have never claimed on an insurance policy..Ever.

    I insure my Anderson with Haven /Amlin, they seem as reasonable as anyone and helpul if say I have to delay lift out by a couple of weeks into October - a descendant of St Margarets & Newton Crum, ( cruisers & dinghies respectively ) I'd imagine they would cover a Drascombe.

    Having said that, just had my renewal this afternoon, it has risen from £160 to £190 which may not be 50% but I'm not chuffed - if I hadn't heard Jumbleducks' OP I'd be looking around but seems not worth bothering.

    Try Y Insurance … many on here use them and are happy. I've been with them for years without a problem. You can probably get a quote over the phone and they're very friendly! I would think a Drascombe Longboat would be one of the cheapest boats afloat to insure!
