Insurance for Sailors by Sailors



Northernreef Insurance Co SA have a claims payment rate in excess of 90% in all cases. That is probably one of the best, if not the best in the industry.

Thank you and I am so impressed with the efficiency with this settlement.
Kind regards
Brian Caulton Marina Manager

Good morning Joan and Brian
we wanted you to know how efficient and helpful the Northern Reef insurance people have been with our claim for our lost dinghy and outboard. Via fax, email and post we have made the claim and received the money into our bank account – and to think we have been communicating with them from Tonga, Fiji and Vanuatu and the chap we were dealing with is in Spain!!! This may be helpful for other folk who are contemplating insurance.

“We just wanted to THANK YOU for all your help, professionalism, proactive communications, guidance, direction and patience over the last few weeks. Edward William is just a great team and a great organization. Thank goodness we have you as our insurance agents. Thank you once again for all your team’s help over the last month. The funds that you transferred are in our account and we just wanted to say another big thank you. Your team is amazing. Yours Sincerely”

“Again, many, many thanks for your intervention on our behalf. It is very much appreciated. ”
“And please express our sincere appreciation to the folks at Northernreef for their very principled agreement to offer coverage despite Frank’s absconding with the premium monies. This kind of gentlemanly way of doing business is only rarely encountered these days.”

Hi Brian,
Although I have not had cause to make a claim, I have been very happy with the service from your client. They have always been very quick to respond to my inquiries, as you also have. I think the policy detail is well set out, easy to read and understand, and clearly written by yachties for yachties. Again, thanks for the support and when I buy another boat (and I am sure it will happen someday), then I will come calling again. In the meantime, regards to you other half.

Dear Brian,
Just managed to get to a place where we can get internet and would just like to let you know that the insurance payment was received into our account. Thanks very much for your assistance and thanks too to Malcolm for his reassurance and help after we had that accident. Whilst it turned out to be nothing really serious, at the time is was a great worry and the prompt and helpful responses from Edward William Marine Services helped a lot to relieve the stress.
Best regards,
Richard Shaw S/Y Aquarius

Hi Brian,
