Boat Insurance: Are there special cover needs when taking a boat abroad?

The insurance requirements of different countries vary based on factors such as the size and type of boat involved and what it is being used for. These requirements can also vary over time so if you are intending to cruise in the waters of another country, please check with them what their minimum boat insurance requirements are before you depart.

Some countries (e.g. Greece, Italy and Spain) may require you to produce evidence that you hold appropriate insurance that meets their minimum requirements. If you have included the territorial waters of any of these countries in the cruising area for your policy, we will automatically produce a certificate as part of your policy schedule to provide such evidence.
