About Us


Alan & Thomas Insurance Group is a leading Chartered Insurance Broker that specialises in arranging comprehensive and competitive insurance cover for all types of marine craft including motor boats, yachts, sail boats, speed boats, RIBs and jet skis. Located next to the coastal waters of the South Coast in Poole, Dorset, our private client team have a personal affinity with the water and can offer a highly knowledgeable and professional service. They combine their expertise in sourcing the right insurance cover with their passion and knowledge of the marine world to offer our clients a first class service in Bournemouth and the surrounding areas.

We have built very close working relationships with the UK’s leading insurers in the marine insurance arena and can often negotiate policy enhancements and premium discounts for our clients. We are also members of the British Marine Federation. Originally founded in 1975, we have now firmly established ourselves as a Top 100 independent insurance broker in the UK¹. 

We are the only independent broker in Dorset to have been awarded the prestigious title of ‘Chartered Insurance Broker’ by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) and have successfully passed rigorous inspection year on year, since first being awarded it in 2007, to retain this accreditation – known as the ‘gold standard’ in the insurance broking industry. Having this status proves to clients that they can expect the very highest levels of expertise, service and support on a continued basis from us.

In addition to our Poole headquarters, we have four further offices in Gillingham, Dorchester, Frome and Basingstoke.
