Boating insurance you can depend On 

Nautical Insurance has been offering kiwis insurance since 1988 with specialist marine insurance cover for all types of boats and watercraft. Nautical is the largest arranger of boat insurance in New Zealand, with a large customer base in the South Island and Wellington Area. This sizeable client base enabled Nautical to enter a long-standing marketing arrangement with Royal and Sun Alliance (now Vero Insurance), obtaining very favourable premiums and wide policy coverage. 

When a claim occurs, Nautical Insurance work at the sharp end to arrange salvage and recovery, organise assessors and provide immediate advice on where to go and what to do. There are over 40 repair centres around the South Island associated with Nautical, and Nautical is authorised to salvage and recover any damaged vessel, minimising any loss and start immediately on preliminary repairs. Claims are handled from Christchurch.
