Apart from being a generally good idea, many harbours require that boats have a minimum of GBP 3 million third party liability insurance. Many inland waterways require a minimum of GBP 1 million of third party cover.

The quotes below will rapidly go out of date, but the idea is to make a list of insurers that will insure Corribess and Coromandels for trips short and long and to get a feel for the premiums charged. Quotes below are for a vessel valued at GBP 5000 unless otherwise stated. Prices with RYA after them are discounted prices for RYA members.
