Marine Insurance specialists IRCM are offering support to Wheelyboat operators who are looking for insurance advice and cover in respect of their vessels and wider insurance needs.
IRCM are assisting the fundraising activities of the Wheelyboat Trust through donating a percentage of all income derived from providing insurance services to Wheelyboat owners and operators. Mark Elcocks, Specialist Risks Executive with IRCM said “We are honoured to be able to work with such an important boating charity and to assist with raising funds to support its work.
“IRCM works with many boatbuilders and dealers in providing tailored insurance services to their clients” said Mark who has almost 20 years’ experience of assisting marine charities with their insurance programmes – “We offer our properly registered introducers a bonus-building facility that gives them an additional stream of income.” The Wheelyboat Trust will receive a payment from IRCM for every insurance policy it arranges for a Wheelyboat operator.
Wheelyboat operators also stand to benefit from the arrangement. Wheelyboats are used for a variety of activities, ranging from pleasure boating and angling to powerboat training and even as workboats. As an independent boat insurance broker IRCM are able to source the most appropriate cover at competitive prices whatever the use of the vessel. Additionally, because IRCM specialise in providing marine trade insurances, Wheelyboat operators, whether they are a club, a training organisation, harbour trust or commercial marine business, are also able to source comprehensive and competitive cover for their property, contents, liabilities, marine installations and all their other vessels.
Andy Beadsley, Director of The Wheelyboat Trust said “It is very important for us to be working with a broker who fully understands the role Wheelyboats play in enabling people with mobility issues to take part in waterborne activities. Some insurers equate the combination of disability and water as increased risk, but IRCM recognise that being mobility impaired should not be a barrier to actively participate on the water. Not only are IRCM’s policies tailored to fit the needs of Wheelyboat operators, but they are also incredibly competitive. We are delighted to be working with IRCM who support the fundraising activities of The Wheelyboat Trust and whose policies we can confidently recommend in regards to price and cover provided.”
