In the event of an incident/accident on a beach, slipway or inland waters during pleasure boating or a formal boating event – a liability approach for a third-party loss or accident, may well be directed at the club or entity which has been given the right to operate or co-ordinate boating activities from that area or facility.

Our new Launch site/Slipway Operators Liability Cover offers cover between R1 Million – R20 Million from as little as R180 per month.

The policy covers:

  • Clubs, marinas, and other entities operating slipways and launch sites - coastal and inland!
  • Duty officers, tractor drivers, vehicle operator and those performing duties and or services to boat users
  • Launch areas under club control – extending to launch or slipways areas on land and to a designated range in the water
  • Temporary launch sites – for events and competitions
  • Boat yards, fuel pump sites and more

While any loss or damage to third parties or passengers resulting in a liability matter will normally first come against the skipper of a boat who is ultimately the responsible person, the club or operator may well be pulled into a liability case, especially if the entity is deemed to have some sort of control over the boats that utilise the launch facility. The legal costs alone to defend the case can become crippling.

While your club may have provision for public liability, most liability covers end at the water’s edge, as it then becomes a marine risk, resulting in gaps. 


Our Assist Service is not limited to towing only!

  • Mechanical & Electrical breakdown and accident towing
  • Roadside Assistance
  • Emergency car hire or accommodation
  • Medical Assistance
  • Across Border Assistance

They came in second overall to the U19 SADSAA TEAM who achieved gold overall!

The CMI Team attended the 2022 Yamaha Boat Show held at the World of Yamaha in Sandton. It was a fun day out, with loads of boats on display, ample activities for the children, plus candy floss and pancakes. While the theatre aired the Rugby on Saturday, and the Motor GP and Grand Prix on Sunday, the team saw many familiar faces, and met some new ones.  Dozens of entries were submitted for the Lucky Draw Competition. Ian Easton and Malcom Falgate were the lucky winners of this draw and each won themselves a CMI Buddy Cooler Box.


96 Bass anglers  took part in the SABAA Interprovincials, held at Witbank Dam, where water temperatures of around 10 – 11 degrees were recorded. Northern Natal took top spot with their five-fish bag a day, scoring 89.3250 points overall. Gauteng Province came a close second with 84.6100 points, and Limpopo placed third with 79.0000 points.

Gauteng's eight-member team looked very smart in their Club Marine-sponsored shirts. Justin Liebenburg from Northern Natal won the 15-litre Cooler Box in the CMI Lucky Draw!


Congratulations to Levi Shepard (7), our youngest Club Marine representative – who did us proud at the first event of the Junior Powerboat racing 2022/2023 season, recently held at the Vaal. Levi, placed 1st in the 6 – 12 age group!

Amazingly, he was also drawn as winner of our lucky draw - taking home a CMI apparel pack. Cairen Elliot nabbed one of our lucky draw apparel packs.

Whistling is considered a “no, no” for superstitious sailors!?

“Fair winds and following seas” is well-known as the nautical blessing for a safe journey. According to a centuries-old myth, this could be put at risk by simply blowing tunes from your mouth while onboard.

Apparently, whistling stirs up the wind and disturbs the seas around your yacht!

And you NEVER challenge the wind!

“Thank you and your team for the unsurpassed customer service and support.”

You always called me and updated me with the process of my claim and even after I got my vehicle you kept on checking on me. I am honestly blown away and appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.
