Welcome to our Insurance page!

The right insurance is a must when enjoying boating on the water. At Boataffair we believe in quality and transparency in everything we do.

We wish to point out that it is the responsibility of the boat owners and boat renters engaging with our platform to obtain appropriate insurance cover. This insurance page does not represent any form of recommendation for insurance coverage, nor do we assume to give advice on insurance of any form.

However, we strive to guide you to the best of our abilities to find the insurance you are looking for.

 


For this purpose, we have partnered up with renowned insurance company
