New streamlined approach to dinghy insurance from Haven Knox-Johnston
30 May 2024

Haven Knox-Johnston (Haven KJ) is thrilled to unveil a speedy new online dinghy insurance ‘quote and buy’ tool which allows dinghy owners to get an insurance quote in less than 30 seconds. 

Having spent considerable time discussing, and carefully listening to what dinghy owners really want from insurance over the last 12 months, the Haven KJ crew has emerged from a darkened room with an entirely new offering aimed at crafting the whole dinghy insurance process into a more enjoyable, slick experience.  

Efficiency and simplicity are key to the new quote and buy tool, meaning dinghy owners no longer need to answer a host of frustrating questions which aren’t relevant to their dinghy, or input extensive personal details to generate a quote. Everything is streamlined for unparalleled convenience, as after all, it’s valuable boating time being squandered in front of a screen.

Haven KJ has also taken the opportunity to tune its dinghy insurance policies to precisely match the evolving needs and preferences of dinghy owners. The ‘All-Weather’ policy now includes cover for dinghy racing, inland and coastal use in the UK, 30 days’ use in European Continental waters as well as road and ferry transit as standard. A ‘Base Layer’ policy option is available to provide a basic level of cover often required by sailing clubs and events, including £5m Third Party Liability.   

"We have always been committed to understanding and addressing the unique requirements of boat owners," said Paul Knox-Johnston, Sales and Marketing Manager at Haven KJ. "Through our extensive engagement efforts, we've gained invaluable insights into the specific needs and pain points of dinghy owners. The result is our enhanced dinghy insurance offering and the introduction of our rapid quote and buy tool, both of which are designed to provide dinghy enthusiasts with a better insurance experience."

In addition to providing dinghy insurance, Haven KJ remains dedicated to catering for the diverse needs of the marine industry right across the UK, coupling industry-leading customer service with comprehensive cover options for yachts, motorboats, narrowboats, and much more.  

Through sister companies, Haven Knox-Johnston Specialist and Haven Knox-Johnston Commercial, they can also cover more complex boat insurance needs for those with ambitious plans, or unique boats, as well as protect marine trade businesses of all shapes and sizes.
