Ahoy! Insurance, a digital managing general agent for recreational boating, has announced a partnership with American Sailing (ASA), the largest sailing authority in the US.

Ahoy! said the partnership would significantly expand its reach in the US market, which has more than 12 million registered boaters.

ASA members will gain access to Ahoy!’s insurance offering. Customer service will be provided by the Hild Group, Ahoy! said in a news release

Ahoy! Insurance benefits include:

  • A holistic insurance offering at a price exclusive to ASA members
  • Onboarding that allows a three-minute quote and five-minute purchase
  • Broad coverage options with reduced deductibles for self-inspections
  • Access to customized features including phone overboard coverage, on-water towing assistance, and anti-theft technology

“ASA has been a vital institution in American sailing for over four decades and is known for its top-notch member offerings, while the Hilb Group is known for its excellent service,” said Amit Nisenbaum, CEO of Ahoy! Insurance. “This partnership brings each of these two highly respected organizations together with us to enable American Sailing boaters to enjoy a tech-driven offering tailored to their needs and great customer support. We’re excited for this partnership to join with ASA, and we know their members will love the Ahoy! Experience.”

“Our partnership with Ahoy! Insurance and the Hilb Group combines competitive and comprehensive coverage with tech-driven, boater-specific features and great customer service,” said Roman Manning, director of business development at ASA. “That’s a big win for our boaters, who can enjoy peace of mind, top-notch technology, and great service.”

“In nearly every industry today, customization is a major advantage – both for insurers and customers,” said Curtis McKeon, marine insurance specialist at the Hilb Group. “When it comes to recreational boating, we are constantly seeking innovative, client-focused options such as Ahoy! Insurance. Combined with our experience and customer service, together we are able to provide an ideal offering for the marketplace.”

Last year, Ahoy! Insurance was named “Best Emerging InsurTech” by InsurTech Hartford as part of the Innovation Challenge Awards.
