RS Sailing’s new RS Aero has received the backing of the Marine Insurance market with the launch of a specialist scheme for owners of the new craft. Helen Llewellyn Managing Director of Direct Protect Solutions has brokered a deal with specialist Marine Insurance broker Insurance Risk & Claims Management (IRCM).

Helen said “In putting together a product for Aero owners we had to balance quality of the security with a competitive premium. Insurers generally were suggesting comparatively high premiums because of the Aero’s carbon fibre components but we were able to agree a competitive £75.00 premium with IRCM.  The deal sees a £5 donation for every policy sold going to the RS Aero Class Association as additional support for RS Sailng.

IRCM’s Specialist Risks Executive Mark Elcocks said “We have been providing specialist owners schemes for boatbuilders and marine-based clubs for some time now and our appetite for new opportunities remains unchanged.   Boatbuilders, dealers and marine clubs interested in setting up owners insurance schemes and other affinity initiatives should telephone Mark Elcocks on 01902 796 793 or email
