We received this press release from Craftinsure, one of the advertisers in our magazine and website. Is this a new way of arranging your boat insurance?


Craftinsure App    Boat Insurance sails into the 21st Century

The first boat insurance App that has full functionality, allowing you to manage your boat insurance, at your convenience, on your phone.

Craftinsure.com, which has been setting the pace since becoming the first on line boat insurer back in 2000, has turned the old fashion world of boat insurance on its head again.

The world has moved on, we all use our phones to bank, to call a cab and to check the weather, surely you should be able to sort your boat insurance out on your mobile?

Number 1 for convenience and price, Craftinsure has not made the boring world of boat insurance really interesting, but they have made it really easy.

You can take pictures of your boat and the most expensive bits of kit and store them in the App, so if the worst happens, the claim is made easy. You can make a claim direct from the App on your phone and check progress through the App.

The repairers you may need to get back on the water are all on the App and the repairers are listed nearest to where you are.

As you would expect the App will notify you of forthcoming renewal and you can change your premium payment method on the App.

You will be able to geolocate your boat on the App.  It will alert you when a major storm is on the way, but it will only give you the ‘heads up’ if the storm is due to hit you, as Craftinsure will know where your boat is moored or kept. As they will also know what sort of boat, they can tailor the help to be relevant to you.

As with all Apps, this is the first release, and Craftinsure say they are already excited about the updates they have planned which will make the App smarter and smarter.

Download at  https://www.craftinsure.com/app  and you will never again think of Boat Insurance as just a policy.                             

 Can your boat insurance do that?
