Dealt really well with a claim and when I came to cancelling my policy after I sold my boat, they refunded me fairly and quickly. Will definitely use them for my next boat

Simon Firth gave us a really fast response. He understood the damage to the engine, processed our claim in days and offered to settle upon receipt of the estimate. We could not ask for a better service.

What is the very worst thing that can happen to your boat? Well, it happened to us! Our much loved Nauticat 33, for 17 years, sank peacefully at her Marina berth one Sunday morning. A contractor, who had removed the water trap silencer for repair had jammed the exhaust pipe above the water-line, but a week later it came free, fell into the bilges and the rest was history. By coincidence, the Pantaenius Claims Manager was in the vicinity and we met at the boat 90 minutes later. Where do you start? I had no idea, but Pantaenius did. Within 48 hours, she had been recovered by crane/barge and put ashore at a local yard. There, she was met by a team who pressure cleaned, got rid of diesel contamination and cleaned her out, working until midnight. Sails were sent for laundering, a survey carried out and estimates for repairs obtained. In the event, Pantaenius declared her a "Total Constructive Loss". They picked up all the bills and within 3 weeks, the total of the "Agreed Value", with no deductions was in my bank account. Superb, efficient and friendly service. How could any company do better? I must say, that when I chose Pantaenius, all those years ago, although they were the most expensive, the "exclusion" paragraphs were very few, unlike all the other companies, where they ran into pages. It turned out to be a wise investment. I'm not sure of their present policy, but with our previous boat, they did not insist on an "out of water" survey, or a change of standing rigging after 10 years. WELL DONE PANTAENIUS !

Although I never made a claim, the people I talked to in the Pantaenius team were professional and responsive to my personal needs. In 2014 Pantaenius was the only UK boat insurance who gave me full boat cover insurance sailing single handed from Scotland to the Canary Islands, other UK insurance companies required minimum a crew of 3. However to carry on single handed to the Caribbean’s only third party was available until notification to Pantaenius of my arrival on te Caribbean where full cover will resume. The same rules applied for my return to Scotland in 2018.

Always helpful and very prompt service with good advice. Have dealt with them for the last 4 years no problems. I've never had to claim yet, but I'm sure there wouldn't be a problem
