Originally a collection of fallen trees that were shaped and joined together with vines to form a stable floating platform. The next evolutionary step was to tie two canoes together with a central seating platform which could go further out to sea and ideal for the fisherman. The central seating platform over time got bigger with longer hulls and eventually a mast and sails were fitted, a small shelter was constructed which enabled boats to go further afield and cross large oceans.
The term Yacht comes from the Dutch word jacht or jachtschips. The Dutch Navy in the 14th century did not have fast enough ships to catch the rampaging pirates, a smaller and faster jacht was designed which was able to outrun and catch them. In the mid 1600’s Royalty, the elite and wealthy merchants started building and racing yachts, it became a popular sport and developed into what it is today.
Why do I need boat insurance?
Your boat is an expensive asset irrespective of its age. You need to insure your asset to protect yourself against any claim for damages from collision, third parties, sinking, theft or fire.
Flares indicate the position of a boat or a person in distress.
Flares - White, Red and Orange
White Flares: To indicate to another boat, there could be a danger of collision.
Red Flares: Can be used night or day and are very bright and visible. Ideal for attracting the attention of other boats, search and rescue helicopters, and rescue organisations.
