They did well by us in Europe so we went with them again in Aus
Reviewed Nov 2017
Having experienced exceptional service when a claim was lodged after our previous boat was hit by a charter cat in Spain, we insured with Pantaenius in Australia as soon as we bought our new to us older, traditional ketch here. Their premium was very competitive and we were able to renegotiate the agreed value upwards after completing a major refit and re-rig of the boat. This was very important to us.
We have not had a claim here but have enjoyed good service from the staff in all our dealings including the when changing our policy to include the western Pacific for a trip then altering back to the lower premium when we returned. Some of the conditions of the policy such as the lack of cover if you leave your boat at anchor overnight are restrictive but when we examined other companies PD Statements they all seem to have similar clauses. Make sure you check yours. Over all we are very happy. We hope we are never unfortunate enough to need to claim but if we do we will update our review afterwards.
