Chipping Norton, Oxon United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 09, 2011 -- Boat Insurance Deemed Essential as Liverpool Boat Show 2011 Creates Opportunities
UK boating enthusiasts will be given the chance to immerse themselves in all things marine, as the Liverpool Boat Show 2011 takes place on the River Mersey. The boating demonstration will feature an array of prestigious boating names including J Boats, Grand Soleil, Fairline, Azimut and Beneteau, and will cater for a wide selection of boating enthusiasts. With the show featuring comedy festivals and regattas too, large numbers are expected. The exhibition is being held on the banks of the River Mersey, and offers UK boat owners the chance to sail to the event and dock, making boat insurance very important.
The River Mersey has over 350 permanent berths, with the majority servicing water and electricity. Berths are available for boats and canal barges up to 60 feet, so a variety of crafts are welcome. Vast numbers are expected and as such the importance for boat insurance has become significant. Critics argue that large crowds at events are unfortunately liable to an increase in theft and damage to public and private property. Boat insurance offers boat protection, and in a situation where the culprit is unlikely to be ascertained, insurance for your boat becomes a necessity.
David Quick, Managing Director of Insure My Boat, who provide comprehensive insurance for boats of all kinds, said:
"The Liverpool Boat Show is a fantastic opportunity for boating enthusiasts worldwide, and I am really excited about the media exposure that this is generating for the often neglected boating establishments. I am glad to see that many boating enthusiasts are taking the serious route of getting boat insurance before they go, as many have learnt that at large events, opportunist thieves are often present as well."
The river's aqua theatre, set to hold a number of events, can host up to 1,000 observers, all of whom will be treated to various water based demonstrations and displays. The events expected include wake-boarding, power boat racing, water-skiing, championship sailing and yacht and power master classes, to name just a few. However, with such a lot going on, experts are warning boat owners to invest in the proper insurance to protect themselves from theft, collision damage and vandalism.
Comedy and shanty festivals are among the show's event highlights, and they're anticipated to bring in large numbers of people, not just those interested in boats and water sports. Insure My Boat and other insurance providers offer a large selection of insurance to supply relevant protection for boat owners during exhibitions like this, and they're urging boat owners to invest in cover before the boating season picks up again.
With large numbers expected for the Liverpool Boat Show, and similar shows taking place throughout 2011, providers like Insure My Boat would urge any boat owners thinking of attending the show in their boats to get the appropriate boat insurance to protect their craft and belongings.
