Skippers Plan

The CG&B Group Inc., operators of Skippers Plan marine insurance, has brought well-known boater and insurance broker Graham Neale on board as Senior Account Executive. For many years, owners of offshore performance boats have appreciated Neale as a broker who understands their boats as well as their insurance needs. Neale, who will be working primarily with CG&B’s logistics clients, will also be contributing to the Skippers’ Plan team.
High performance craft are in most ways like other boats yet their design and power means they need to be treated individually. The engines and components and construction of performance boats are specialized so it takes a broker conversant with them to provide proper coverage.
Skippers’ Plan has been meeting boaters’ insurance needs for more than 60 years and now can capitalize on Neale’s expertise to assist owners of performance boats as well. “We’re committed to understanding the boats we insure and now, with Graham’s presence, we can assist offshore boat owners with confidence.”

Even in the event of an onboard power failure, a Ritchie Navigation SuperSport Helmsman SS-1002 magnetic compass still works.
