Club Marine now on your mobile
Mobile app delivers handy boating information and insurance help.
Boating insurer, Club Marine, has introduced its own marine app for use by both member and non-member boat owners.
Features of the app include severe weather alerts to notify boaters of impending weather events, both on and off the water. Notifications can be received for the current location as well as up to four additional locations, such as where the boat is moored.
The app also includes important safety information such as essential checklists as well as a trip planner with the latest weather forecasts, tide times and wind conditions for any upcoming journeys.
“The Club Marine app combines both fun and function into one easy-to-use mobile app,” said Club Marine CEO Simon McLean. “Free access to severe weather alerts will help protect our members on and off the water, while features like the Trip Planner and quick access to policy information make it easier for members.
“It’s all part of our commitment to supporting recreational boating and helping everyone get the most out of their boating experience.”
Club Marine members can use the app to view their policy information, enabling them to provide proof of insurance, renew or update their policy details, or even buy a new policy. The app will also notify members when their policy is due for renewal.
The Help Me function enables members to contact Club Marine Assist, a 24/7 service that provides advice, assistance, directions, information about marine service centres, and a safe place to berth or refuel. Members can call for emergency assistance, record important information about an incident or lodge a claim straight from the app. It also lets users store important records, such as photos of their boat and equipment, licences and permits.
While non-members of Club Marine can access the app for free, members get access to additional functions.
“We’re very pleased that Club Marine members and non-members alike can benefit from our free app,” said McLean. “Of course, our members receive additional features as one of the many benefits of being a Club Marine member. It’s just another reason to choose Australia’s market leader in pleasurecraft insurance.”
The app has been designed in collaboration with some of Australia and New Zealand’s leading boating enthusiasts and Club Marine’s own team of marine safety and insurance specialists. It is available for iOS and Android devices from the App Store or on Google Play.
