Why get a quote from Baileys?

At Baileys we believe there are definite advantages in boat owners placing their insurance cover through us as their Broker, compared to placing cover direct with the insurer
The relationship is quite different. When you deal direct with an insurer, you are dealing with those who “hold the purse strings”, and therefore it is in their interests as a business to minimise any claim settlement.  We’re not saying that they try and get out of claims at all (although we all know one Insurer that does!!), but it is just natural that they will pay the minimum applicable, in order to improve their bottom line. We have been in this business now for over 30 years, and we’ve seen it first hand – many, many times.
As a Broker, we are acting solely in the interests of our client.  We are on your side, and are there to keep the Insurer honest, and to maximise any claim entitlement.  I can honestly say that we have had many claims paid over our 30 years, that wouldn’t have been paid without our input – and some of these claims have been millions of dollars (not marine related on those ones).

Travel Insurance

*Get 10% off the premium when you purchase the Topsail Yachtsmans Gold Policy when purchased with a Topsail Marine Insurance policy via Baileys.*Down Under Rally participants only

Not all Travel Insurance is created equal, especially for the offshore cruising sailor find out why....

When private vessels are involved, you do need to be very careful as to what cover the Insurer is actually providing. Some Insurers exclude ANY cover whatsoever when on a private vessel, no matter where you are. Also be careful of some policies that say you are covered within a certain distance from land – this will only apply if you are no more than the stated mileage from land for the whole voyage. For example, if you were heading off on a blue water passage, you are sailing beyond the usual limit (say 10 miles) so at no time will you be covered aboard your vessel, even when you are just cruising within sight of land. We’ve thoroughly researched the market, and can recommend the specialist Yachtsman’s Travel policy through Topsail Insurance, UK. Topsail provides cover on private vessels anywhere, and includes $25,000 benefit for search and rescue operations.

The thing to remember is where were you at the time the event or loss occurred. If you were outside the 10 or 25 mile limit for example, and suffered a severe stroke requiring medical attention and repatriation, you wouldn’t be covered under most other policies. You couldn’t then head in to land and claim whilst you were within the limits! In addition to the cover whilst on a private vessel, all policies include the usual benefits needed as part of a travel insurance package, however Topsail do not include cover for any rental vehicle excess, as some policies do.
