Arranged by Primo plc

Commercial Combined

Maine trade insurance is a Commercial Combined Policy designed to cater for a wide variety of businesses that provide services for all things marine in nature. Sailing is a huge industry in the UK. Some would argue that without our ties to the sea, canals and waterways the UK wouldn't be the great country it is today. The UK marine industry is huge and vastly diverse in the trades carried out under it.

From the Henly Royal Regatta to Cowes Week, sailing in the UK has a very long history. Our Royal Navy has been the defender of our sea channels since 1660, much of the trade in the UK up until only recently was transported by waterways and canals in barges so it's no surprise that many of us have connections to all things marine, no one living in the UK is more than 70 miles from the sea.
