Burns & Wilcox launches online marine insurance program
As boating season kicks off, insurance agents and brokers will be able to access insurance solutions through the Burns & Wilcox Marine Center of Excellence.

The program, which launched on April 1, allows agents to access the ACE Recreational Marine program online to quickly quote, bind and issue boat policies. It is part of an ongoing effort on behalf of Burns & Wilcox to “increase the ease of insuring marine clients and expand coverage,” according to a company statement.

ACE and Burns & Wilcox have been in partnership some time, and stress that their collaborative efforts will allow agents and brokers to work directly with experienced marine insurance specialists who can offer informed opinions.

In addition to the 12% commission for agents, Burns & Wilcox is also offering a $50 Visa gift card to the first 100 brokers and agents to bind three or more policies.

According to the Burns & Wilcox website, program highlights include:
  • Receive a bindable quote in just a few minutes, with minimal information
  • Convenient desktop quoting with one of the premier marine specialty companies
  • Admitted paper and direct billed to your clients
  • AA- (Very Strong) rating
