About Haven Knox-Johnston

Our values

We’ve navigated a lot of change over the past three decades, with new owners, new names, and new looks. But throughout, our values have always stayed the same, because they’re at the heart of who we are. We believe in great customer service, the power of knowledge, and enjoying ourselves out on the water – and in the office.
And we put everything we’ve got into making boat ownership plain sailing for you.

While we know the insurance side of things isn’t quite as thrilling as being out on the open water, it shouldn’t be a drag, either. And when you take boat insurance with us, it’s the start of a great relationship.

Where it all began

Since Chris Knox-Johnston, brother of sailing legend Robin Knox-Johnston, set up in boat insurance in the 80s, our story has been one of dynamism and change. Why not check out our milestones?
