    Default Insurance without survey?

    My boat is now 31 years old and my current insurer (Craftsure) won't renew the policy without a new survey. As the boat is not of high value I'm not keen on paying for a lift out and survey every couple of years.

    Does anyone know of an insurance company who will insure for inland waterways, with third party to about 1million, without a current survey (I do have a BSS certificate)?

    Try this site:-

    I got insured online with them, with no problems.
    When in danger or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout.

    That's who I'm with at present. But I would have to get a new survey done before renewing due to the age of the boat. Lift out, survey and lift back in is fairly expensive (probably about 1000) compared to the insured value (10k).

    The website form says I need a survey due to the age of the boat.

    Try:
    - GJW
    - Bishop Skinner
    - St Margarets
    - Pole Star

    Some might say they require a survey, but this isn't always the case depending on age, size, and value. Some just require a report from you, or maybe a set of photos.

    PM me if you want any more info.

    We can, in many circumstances, offer a third party only policy without the need for a survey. I am pleased to confirm that we would be able to offer a liability only policy to you.

    I'll revise the wording on our web site to clarify this point.
