Cruising along the UK's canals on a traditional canal boat is a journey that intertwines relaxation with a touch of Britain's industrial past.

Like all valued assets, safeguarding your investment is crucial.

We ensure the insurance we provide is your protective financial guarantee against the unforeseen moments of life on the canals.

Tailored to give you both reassurance and extensive coverage, our insurance is crafted to suit all boat enthusiasts, from those enjoying short jaunts on local waterways to the ones exploring the expansive canal network.

From cruisers to narrowboats and Dutch barges to traditional working boats, canal boat insurance is essential.

Whether it's overarching coverage or specific coverage inclusions you seek, our deeply experienced team ensures your policy always does what you need it to do – no more, no less. 

KGJ focuses on a highly tailored experience, far from the generic online insurance portals and soulless price comparison sites. We advocate conversation, either in-person or over the phone, to help us get a genuine understanding of your unique needs. At KGJ, canal boat insurance is not just transactional, it's our genuine pledge to preserve your peaceful waterway escapades and assure your financial security when cruising
