We have been with Pantaenius, UK from 2000 to 2009, and Pantaenius, US ever since we crossed from the Med to the US waters in 2009/2010. Our experience with both companies was more than correct and enjoyable, both in terms of competitive premiums charged and, more importantly, the straightforward acceptance of the two damage claims submitted. The first claim covered a damage sustained in a storm in Greece in 2001, and was dealt with fully and expeditiously by Pantaenius, UK. The second claim arose from a heavy weather caused extensive damage, including a knock down, incurred in the summer of 2011 during my Atlantic crossing on the way back to the Med. After I arrived in Lagos, Portugal, Pantaenius, US, appointed the local surveyor, and for the next eight months, he approved and helped supervise all the repairs carried out by the local trades and the shipyard. Once I paid my deductible, the insurer paid all the costs as quoted and invoiced, including the invoices for our stay in Lagos Marina. Beyond reproach.
I have no interest of any kind in Pantaenius, US other than being a loyal and fully satisfied insured party.
If this note appears as promotion for the company, so be it, for they deserve all the cudos and compliments for their exemplary treatment of just another customer.
