Pantaenius Yacht Insurance opens new branch in Poland
On 1 January 2018, Pantaenius opened the doors of its new branch in Gdansk, Poland. Until now, Pantaenius products have been exclusively sold in the country through a local broker. For Polish customers this means an even more efficient service by Pantaenius specialists and an expansion of the product portfolio for the Polish market.
For more than 50 years Pantaenius Yacht Insurance has stood for the best possible coverage against the financial risks of water sports and reliable service in the event of a claim in Germany and the world. The tailor-made products of the European market leader for boat and yacht insurance have also been offered in Poland for around twelve years. In order to expand the product portfolio and services in Poland and to meet the country's growing water sports sector, the decision was now made to support Polish customers through its own local Pantaenius branch.
Michael Korneszczuk, who successfully managed the business of the responsible broker agency Nautica Nord in recent years, took over responsibility for the Gdansk-based Pantaenius office at the turn of the year: "Our goal is to consolidate Pantaenius' role as Europe's leading specialist for yacht insurance in Poland as well. With the opening of our own Pantaenius branch we confirm this claim and are now in a position to provide the former Nautica Nord customers with even more comprehensive support in all matters of boat and yacht insurance".
Martin Baum, Managing Director of the Pantaenius Yacht Group, commented: "Maritime shipping has always played an important role in the history of Poland. The promotion of recreational shipping and young water sports enthusiasts is now slowly but surely gaining more and more momentum. As pioneers of boat and yacht insurance, we are pleased to be able to accompany the dynamically growing water sports sector in Poland from year to year in this important development and to set new standards with the availability of our complete product range on the local market. Come what may!“
