About La Playa Marine

Specialist & Independent

Specialist & Independent

Our Marine team has decades of experience in yacht insurance – we can guide you through the decision-making process, providing personalised risk advice and protecting your precious downtime. We provide a human face to make sense of marine insurance – real people who work with you at your pace, providing as much (or as little) detail as you wish.

But what makes us unusual is our “portfolio” approach, allowing you to combine your marine, home and vehicle insurance needs. This is no “bolt-on”: by streamlining specialist marine insurance with high net worth home and motor cover, we present an overall more attractive risk package to the insurer. This can mean better rates and time savings - just one payment and a single policy anniversary, minimising the possibilities for gaps in cover and maximising your peace of mind.

In-house Wealth Management

We also offer Investments & Pensions and Financial  Planning: a joined up approach with a team of advisers working for your best financial interests - all under one roof.
