What a fantastic company, I excelled myself this year and took my boat through the french canals to the Mediterranean, then on to Corsica and Sardinia where I had a bit of an incident but GJW were very honest understanding and paid for my repairs (minus the excess) which is fine, but I am so impressed with the speed and straightforwardness of this company I would highly recommended them to all my friends and sailing colleagues.

We were unfortunate enough recently to have an incident with some fishing gear becoming entangled with our propeller damaging the engine bearers and stern gland. We had emergency repairs done in Cartagena and throughout this traumatic process GJW were superb, On initially contacting them I had trouble with the telephone helpline so sent an email and was contacted within a couple of hours to advance our claim. Ashley our claims manager was brilliant, everything was sorted painlessly. Very much appreciated after two days of pumping the boat every two hours!
I can heartily recommend GJW for boat insurance.

We’ve insured our boats with GJW for around 30 years and sadly had to make a claim for damage to our new Bayliner. I was delighted with how easy it was to do online and great communication. Settled no quibble. A great service.

I just had my pedal cycle stolen away from our boat and was relieved that this was covered by my boat insurance under home contents. GJW were brilliant in processing my claim very quickly. I couldn't have hoped for a better service.

We've just renewed our widebeam insurance for this coming year and received an excellent service from GJW. Really good premium and only a very small increase. Superb!
