About Us
RJP Marine manage the largest and longest established personal watercraft (jetski) scheme in the UK. The first craft, "wetbikes" back then, were insured in 1983 with the Royal Insurance Group.

After a year or so it became clear that “Jetskis”, the Kawasaki manufactured stand up craft, would be the major type of this form of boat and the scheme was adapted to include them and then the dominant Yamaha and Sea Doo brands.

RJP, having recognised the opening for a niche market after almost stumbling on the Wetbike connection, made contact with everyone remotely associated with the sport, from manufacturer/importer to the end user. As with anything some of those involved would only be in it short term whilst others would create a long term future.

It was imperative to forge relationships with the latter sector and it is testimony to the choices made at that time that RJP still have extremely close working relationships and friendships with all of those contacts. Over the years our expertise has widened to all forms of pleasurecraft and RJP continue to work with our business and Insurer partners to come up with new ideas and better service.

RJP have acted for the various trade and racing associations over the years and have contributed centrally to the development of the personal watercraft industry latterly through the British Marine Federation and Personal Watercraft Partnership , of which we are one of the founder members. RJP are regarded as THE personal watercraft insurance experts.

RJP are based in North Lincolnshire and are part of the Johnstone Insurance Brokers Ltd ‘Group’ which provides general insurance advise and services to business clients of all sizes. In addition to the 3 directors, all involved on a day to day basis, 15 people are employed overall
