Berth holders at The Marina at Sutton Harbour to benefit from exclusive insurance deal

Annual berth holders at the 5 Gold Anchor-rated Marina at Sutton Harbour in Plymouth can benefit from an exclusive insurance deal thanks to a new partnership.

Serenity is a brand new boat insurance package created in partnership with the Plymouth office of international insurance provider Pantaenius especially for the Marina’s berth holders, offering a ‘no excess’ facility for vessels berthed within the secure environment of Sutton Harbour.

The insurance package, which will apply to policies on private leisure crafts and for both sail and motor yachts, means boat owners keeping their vessels in the historic heart of Plymouth will have no excess applied on any claims for damage to their boats occurring inside the marina

Mark Brimacombe, Manager of The Marina at Sutton Harbour, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer this special policy to our berth holders in recognition of the uniquely safe and sheltered berthing accommodation we offer here at Sutton Harbour in the heart of Plymouth. We continue to develop partnerships which benefit our customers, and to link up with a local company boasting such impressive credentials as Pantaenius is a further bonus.

“Helping to create Serenity is part of our commitment to offer our berth holders the best possible deals when they choose to berth at our marina, which remains one of the leading 5 Gold Star marinas in the world, and we’re looking forward to working with Pantaenius further.”
