Classic Yacht Insurance Specialist Committed to Supporting Sector

Classic Yacht Insurance Specialists, Insurance Risk & Claims Management (IRCM), have underlined their commitment to this specialist niche as the Yacht Insurance Market

SOUTHAMPTON, England - Feb. 12, 2019 - eTradeWire -- as well as the wider Marine Insurance sphere, remains embroiled in the fallout from heavy global losses over the past 2 years which has forced some insurers to reassess their underwriting appetites and models.
"It's true the Yacht Insurance Market is hardening after many years of low pricing; and classic yacht owners in particular are seeing some huge rate increases that are, some would say, unfairly, targeting them as owners of classic and wooden vessels" said Mark Elcocks, Specialist Risks Executive with IRCM.

"Most boat owners are passionate about their vessel but classic yacht owners really do love their craft.  They are generally well-looked after and, in most cases, free of insurance claims so it's something of a shock for such an owner to receive their insurance renewal with a 30% premium increase and a doubled excess.  Some classic yacht owners are even receiving letters from their insurance provider advising that they are no longer offering insurance on such craft and that their client should look elsewhere for cover."
