Life Insurance, Critical Illness Cover and Income Protection for Sailors
Popular Pastimes: Recreational (pleasure) sailing, yachting, power boats, boat racing, solo sailing, motor boats, speed boats, boating
Possible Risks: Equipment malfunction, environmental factors
Additional Considerations: Location, group/solo, frequency, qualifications, experience
Life Insurance for people who partake in sailing can often be secured at standard terms provided that you remain in UK waters and are not involved in competitions. The insurer will want to know how regularly you sail, where you sail and whether you sail on your own or as part of a group. Sailing Life Insurance applications that involve transoceanic travel or competitive events may be subject to a premium loading but it is worth speaking to an adviser to confirm as every situation is different.
Critical Illness Cover
Critical Illness Insurance for people who sail as a hobby can often be available at normal terms if you keep inshore and do not take part in regular competitions. For those who do perform transoceanic sails or take part in competitions the policy premiums may be increased or a sailing exclusion may be placed on the policy.
Income Protection for people who sail can be available at standard rates, provided that your application is placed with the right insurance company. Insurers will want to know if your sailing is within UK waters or transatlantic, and if you take part in competitions. Sailors who have experienced multiple injuries whilst taking part in the sport may need to place their cover with specialist providers.
