Weather Information and Alerts

Wherever you are, and whatever you do, sailing or at home/work, we follow the weather where your boat is, allow you to watch the weather forecast and send you alerts about imminent weather threats.

Phone Overboard

Ahoy! provides exclusive mobile phone overboard coverage*. The Ahoy! mobile app includes a sailing auto-detection feature that knows when you've set sail, so your mobile phone is automatically insured every time you're on the water.
*Deductibles may apply

Processing Claims

Using the Ahoy! mobile app, you can self-scan your boat/yacht, by taking a series of photos which will be stored in our secured cloud. The self-scan serves as your boat's digital file, and can help in quick processing of damage-related claims (by sending the same set of photos showing the damage). Uploading these photos of your boat/yacht will qualify you for a lower deductible.

Stolen Boat Recovery Assistance

Upon becoming a mate, we will mail you a welcome kit containing a boat recovery assistance tag. The assistance tag, together with the self-scan images will be instrumental in instructing the authorities assisting with the search for your boat/yacht in case it was stolen.

In most ways, I’m all about having fun in life, enjoying challenges and people. So it makes sense that boating is my natural element. But when it comes to important practicalities, like boating insurance, I’m very no-nonsense. I would only ever work with a company like Ahoy! that offers the absolute best coverage. Because if I can’t feel truly carefree, fun isn’t actually fun.

I’ve always wanted boating insurance with specialized expertise in boats, like Ahoy!, not just an add-on to car or home insurance. Until now, there has been a real gap in information, coverage, and understanding of what boating really is for me - a kind of escape.

Everything is better on the water. It’s where we make memories that last forever. Ahoy! understands how important boating is to me and my family because they are boaters like me.. I can enjoy my boating time more fully, because I know my most precious toy is protected.

Justin Monge

Boating is a lifestyle, not a hobby. And my boat is just as important, if not more so, than my house, car, and other assets. So, it’s critical that my boat coverage is comprehensive and leaves me without worries – like Ahoy! does - allowing me to fully disconnect from the rigors of work and fully reconnect with myself.
