  • What is self-assessment?

  • Comparison with pre-insurance expert assessment


  1. Get an insurance quote on line or contact our teams.
  2. If your boat meets the self-assessment conditions, you will receive a form which you should fill in and send back to us, about:
    • the boat's administrative situation,
    • the overall condition,
    • the hull,
    • the steering system,
    • the rigging (for sailboats only),
    • the engine,
    • the electrical circuit,
    • the security system.
  3. Your self-assessment request will be dealt with (free of charge) by our teams within 48 hours (from Monday to Friday, subject to all the necessary paperwork being submitted).

If your boat is in good sailing condition and shows no visible signs of any risks to security on board or at sea, we can proceed to take out the policy together.

This self-assessment will be an integral part of your policy. Without this document, cover is limited to liability insurance.

If required, APRIL Marine reserves the right to request additional information and/or a full, maritime expert assessment.
