Nautilus Plus, the Union's portfolio of member deals and discounts, launched a special home cover arrangement* in September 2017 that reflected the unique demands of seafaring life. (*no longer available)
Seafarers often face trouble when obtaining insurance products – and especially home cover – but Members' Insurance Solutions* was designed to help.
With competitive rates and standard 'unoccupancy' for up to 90 days, and possibly longer, the service was designed to respond to the working schedules of many mariners.
Nautilus former head of strategic development Steven Gosling commented at the time: 'We are delighted to add this new bespoke service to our expanding range of membership benefits. It has been developed in direct response to feedback from members and we know it meets a very specific need for specialist cover.
'The launch of this new home insurance scheme follows the introduction last year of a mortgage service that was also tailored to meet the particular requirements of seafarers, which are often not properly understood by most banks and building societies,' he added.
'The support and benefits we provide are already unrivalled, but we are planning to continue expanding the package even further in the near future.'
The new deal was provided by Cornmarket Insurance Service. Members can log into Nautilus Plus via the dedicated My Nautilus members' area page, to find other deals on independent mortgage advice and life insurance and other special offers.
