Lifestyle Marine Team: Coast to Coast

Throughout 2018, the Towergate marine team has worked closely with our marina partners, Yacht Havens, Quay Marinas and BWML. As the preferred insurance partner, we wanted to spend more time visiting marinas and berth holders. To that end, we set out on a coast to coast marina tour, covering over 8,500 miles to join them for open days, events and shows across the UK.

Highlights for 2018

Some of our highlights include attending Crick alongside BWML, meeting the Newfoundland rescue dogs at Portishead Quay Marinas, and launching our new partnership with MDL Marinas.

We are currently developing a whole suite of video guides, so far working with Yacht Havens’ Lymington Marina and Quay Marinas’ Penarth Marina who have hosted and supported us on our filming days. We will be working with all our partners on further video guides, so look out for the team coming to a marina near you! You can check out our RIB and Yacht & Motorboat guides on the Towergate Boat Insurance Facebook page.

We were pleased to welcome MDL Marinas in autumn of this year, choosing us as their preferred partner. The new affiliation was officially announced at the Southampton Boat Show in September 2018, where we joined them on their stand for the ten-day event.

We are constantly developing our products to meet the needs of our customers. In November, we launched two new insurance cover options with British Canoeing, streamlining the previous six options to now offer cover for either single or multiple craft. British Canoeing members can add the cover as part of their membership via the online portal.

What does 2019 have in store?

We love visiting all our partner marinas and meeting berth holders and visitors, so the tour will continue next year with a full calendar of open days, events and filming.
