Boat Insurance: Does my boat need a survey to be insured?

Depending on the age, type, and construction material of their boat, some owners may be required to make a declaration regarding the vessel’s state before they can obtain boat insurance. Others may even be required to undertake, or to have recently undertaken, an independent survey to confirm the state of the vessel, and to declare that all work required to make it seaworthy has been completed.

When you enter the details of your vessel for an online boat insurance quote you will be informed whether there is any requirement for either a self-declaration or a survey before cover can be arranged.
