Who we are
Founded by Richard Walton-Gould over 25 years ago, WG Yachts has specialised in the insurance of Charter vessels and Charter fleets, many in Greece, but also in the UK, Scotland, Portugal, Spain and Western Mediterranean. We also have access to markets covering Blue Water cruising and Racing vessels of all classes.
In addition to a 10 year career in the Royal Navy Richard has always been involved with sailing, having sailed in most parts of the World; UK, Mediterranean, Caribbean, Far East and North America. He also holds an Ocean Navigation Certificate and RYA Coastal Skipper qualifications in addition to his naval training.
Richard's extensive experience at sea combined and his insurance expertise is recognised across the UK marine insurance market.
In addition to our London office we also operate from Lefkada, Greece providing in location support for our Charter and Personal customers.
