This month, Friday 8 July, marked the beginning of the 20th anniversary celebrations of specialist international yacht and motorboat insurance company, Topsail Insurance.
GH Insurance was founded in 1996 in Tunbridge Wells, during which time one of the company directors started the Bluewater Rally, the circumnavigation event. It was then that the building blocks of Topsail Insurance were created.
In 2007 the company was renamed Topsail Insurance and two years later the team moved to their current base and launched their office in Brighton Marina.
Commenting on the company's anniversary, Managing Director Rob Stevens said: “We are very proud to have reached our 20th anniversary milestone. With our move to Brighton we were able to reflect as a company on the new focus of marine insurance.
“I work with a passionate and enthusiastic team and during our 20 years we have worked with a whole host of clients, customers and suppliers all over the world. We can now proudly say we are truly an international company as in 2015 we launched our first overseas office in Perth, Australia. Now we look forward to the next 20 years.”
Topsail Insurance is owned and run by Rob Stevens and Chris McGowan and backed by a team of dedicated staff based at Brighton Marina.
