Nautilus Marine Now Covers Trimarans

Owners of multi hull sailing boats know only too well the difficulties involved in obtaining insurance coverage. Now, thanks to Nautilus Marine, the dark days of getting adequate insurance cover on multi hulls, including trimarans, have passed.

Nautilus Marine has announced that its boat coverage has been expanded to now cover all sailing multi hulls, including trimarans, when used as private pleasure craft. Owners can obtain a comprehensive policy and third party cover.

According to Mark Crockford, National Sales and Marketing Manager of Nautilus Marine, the multi hull market has changed considerably and for the better over recent years.

“As a specialist marine insurer, we saw a real need with a segment of the sailing market where boaters needed professional insurance support,” said Mark Crockford. “Gladly we found a way to step in and assist most owners of multi hulls that satisfy our underwriting criteria.”

“Due to developments in the market, we are now able to cover most multi hull yachts when used in a private pleasure application.”

“All of the standard requirements of a Nautilus Marine policy that apply to a conventional yacht, are applicable to a multi hull yacht.

Some of the features of a Nautilus Marine yacht policy include: new for old on equipment up to 10 years old; $2,000 repatriation costs to home city; $5,000 ambulance cover; nil excess when third party is at fault; marina liability cover and temporary emergency accommodation. Third party cover of up to $10,000,000 is also available.
