  • Professional Crew

    Boats are our passion - as well as having many years of insurance experience our highly qualified team understand the joys and the challenges of boating. Most of us own boats - too many in some cases! The leadership team are all Insurance qualified (ACII) with vast insurance expertise. Claims are dealt with by our own specialist claims crew - we don’t outsource claims to call centres. But we also have the backing of the Zurich Insurance team to call upon when needed.

  • About Us

    Craftinsure Ireland Limited is a privately owned Underwriting Agency providing an online insurance facility on behalf of Zurich Insurance plc. Craftinsure is owned by Boat owners who are set up the business nearly 20 years ago and Craftinsure now insures over 20,000 boats. We only insure Boats. Craftinsure is a ‘Quote and Buy’ online business - we pass on the cost savings of being online to you as very competitive premiums. We are direct to customers only – we do not deal with brokers or marinas, so you get the savings

  • Our Events

    Craftinsure is keen to support boating in Ireland, sponsoring sailing regattas and other boating events such as the Shannon Boat Rally. Craftinsure also has partnerships with a number of Dinghy and Yacht Class and Owners Associations – get in contact if you want to work with us.

  • 20 years of cover

    Craftinsure was started in 2001. We were the first online Boat Insurer - remember dial up modems? We have become a leading boat insurer in Ireland and the UK. With more than 20,000 policyholders we are now one of the largest boat Insurers. We removed the paper chase that we saw in boat insurance and replaced it with a system that only requires answers to a few questions – quotes take 20 seconds and 2 minutes to get cover. Filling out forms and sending them to underwriters is no longer reasonable - Craftinsure - Boat Insurance made easy.

  • Risk Advice

    Craftinsure is more than just a boat insurance company. We frequently issue advice on how to reduce the risk of loss or damage to your boat. If we can help you avoid having an accident it's even better than paying the claim. We post advice on our website and use social media to engage with our customers. We aim to ensure our advice is topical so that it's provided at the relevant time. If you have our App we can serve advice specific to your boat type and where your boat is located.
