About Yachtsman Insurance Services
YIS under the careful guidance and stewardship of Mr Keith Shepherd, comes highly recommended for all of your Yacht related insurance requirements. KS for 10 years was MD and Chairman of Hunter & Shepherd Ltd, a medium sized specialist yacht insurance broker and a fore-runner for yacht insurance in the Mediterranean placed with Lloyds of London during 1975 to 1985. With excess of 45 years experience he rises from the ‘Old School’ of training where integrity, reliability and personal service are of paramount importance. He is also a Freeman of the City of London and a retired member of Lloyds’ of London Insurance.
For the first part of his career KS specialised solely on the settlement of claims, acting as owners’ agent, then progressed on to the placing of the insurance, keeping a watchful eye on all claims presented. A rare and unique flare, as most placing Insurance Brokers do not have his 25 year experience of a claims environment.
Whether it is Superyacht insurance, P & I, Employers Liability, Crew Medical, Personal Accident & Illness or Private Health, he will seek out the best deal.

YIS provides their clients with a bespoke service covering all aspects of insurance required to cover the owners needs for peace of mind and security.
