George Beevor joins Stoneways Marine

George Beevor has joined marine trade and yacht insurance provider Stoneways Marine as its yacht manager. 

Beevor is both an avid sailor and a longstanding insurance professional and will be focusing on developing the yachting portfolio at Stoneways Marine.

Beevor joins the company after working for a decade as claims manager for Temple Legal Protection, a specialist managing general agent (MGA). Prior to this Beevor held positions with a number of brokers and insurers in the London market. 

Keith Lovett, managing director Stoneways Marine says: “Taking best care of yacht owner’s insurance needs requires a deep, specialist knowledge and understanding that being an active part of their sailing world really helps with. As a keen sailor and familiar face to many, especially those that race in the Solent, along with over 20 years’ insurance experience, George makes a valuable addition to our team.”

Despite coming from a family with strong links to the sea, Beevor did not enter sailing through the traditional route, instead stepping straight onto big boats in his twenties. He was introduced to sailing at the Joint Services Adventurous Sail Training Centre in Gosport while serving in the Royal Navy Reserve. Beevor then took ownership of his first small cruiser after a very short time and has since progressed on through a further four boats.

When he’s not working, Beevor can be found cruising his Sparkman & Stephens sloop Ugly Duckling around the Solent. A keen yacht racer, he is currently the racing secretary of the Sparkman & Stephens Association. In 2019 he was awarded the company’s global regatta trophy. 

Beevor has also been involved in sail training, in particular introducing adults with learning difficulties to yachting. As a trustee of the charity Ausome, he took part in the 2019 Rolex Fastnet Race on the Nautor Swan 43, Lyra of London.
