About Visicover's Yacht Insurance
Whether you just enjoy leisurely cruising or love competitive racing, getting the right type of yacht insurance is important.
Not everybody’s insurance requirements are the same, so unlike some policies which charge you for cover whether you need it or not, at Visicover we believe you should only pay for the cover you want.
Our yacht insurance, winner of the 2022 'Broker Innovation of the Year Award', is designed to be flexible, letting you tailor your cover to your precise wishes. Among the options available are:
