Fishing Boat Insurance
Protection from one of the UK's leading specialists
If you’re a recreational angler, our Motor Boat Cover and the personal effects cover that includes fishing gear, may be just what you are looking for. Fishing vessels can differ just as fishing trips can – and as a consequence, requirements towards a suitable fishing boat insurance will vary from boat owner to boat owner. At Pantaenius, you will find just the right insurance for your fishing vessel (monohull or catamaran), other small angling boat or RIB. Unlike many other insurers, we will also insure your fishing equipment along with your boat. Contact us now to request a quote for your watercraft!

Your Tailored Fishing Boat Insurance
Protection against the unexpected – even the most seasoned fishing boat’s owner or skipper is not immune to challenging situations on the water that can sometimes lead to damage and the resulting financial loss. Years of experience in the boat insurance market has taught us at Pantaenius that Insurance for your fishing boat is highly advisable. As leading experts, we offer you the ideal cover for all types of boats and demands on your private fishing trips. Yacht Third Party Liability Insurance is considered to be one of the most important and at the same time basic covers. Our Hull Insurance is also highly recommended because it offers comprehensive protection for your vessel should damage occur. Furthermore, policies such as Legal Expenses Insurance or Personal Accident Insurance could also be sensible additions.
Protection For Both Your Boat And Fishing Equipment
At Pantaenius, the cover does not end with your watercraft: Insuring your fishing gear separately can be quite expensive. To provide you with the best possible cover, we include cover for your fishing equipment in our comprehensive fishing boat insurance’s fixed sum insured. As a consequence, our policy covers damage to boat, engine and also reels, rods or all other fishing gear being used on the boat (exclusions apply – please request full details for full details). To add your equipment while requesting a quote, just let us know its value combined with the boat’s value in the field named “hull and equipment“.
