  • About Us

    Craftinsure Ireland Limited is a privately owned Underwriting Agency providing an online insurance facility on behalf of Zurich Insurance plc. Craftinsure Ireland was set up over 15 years ago to provide an easy and competitive way to insure pleasure craft and has since become one of the largest boat insurers in Ireland. We only insure Boats. And as a ‘Quote and Buy’ online business we pass on the cost savings of being online. We are direct to customers only – we do not deal with brokers or marinas, so you get the savings.

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

  • 15 years of cover

    Craftinsure Ireland was started in 2008 following the success of Craftinsure’s launch in the UK in 2001. We were the first to provide a complete boat insurance service online - removing the paper chase that we saw in boat insurance. We replaced it with a system that only requires answers to a few questions – quotes take 20 seconds and 2 minutes to get cover. No need for filling out forms and sending them to underwriters. Craftinsure Ireland - 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 relevant and topical. So, whether you are a dinghy sailor in Skerries or own a motor cruiser on the Shannon, we can provide you with appropriate and helpful information!
