Coastguard welcomes Tower onboard as new major partner

Coastguard is delighted to welcome Tower onboard as a new major partner!  

Tower has been helping New Zealanders prepare for the unexpected for over 150 years (even longer than us!). Owned and operated in New Zealand, Tower knows how crucial our volunteers are to keeping everyone safe on the water. 

Coastguard Chief Executive, Callum Gillespie: “As a New Zealand born and bred insurance company, Tower understands the importance of being prepared on the water. This partnership will give us much needed support and help make this summer a great one for our volunteers and all New Zealanders." 

Tower Chief Executive, Blair Turnbull: “We’re partnering with Coastguard to help even more Kiwis out on the water by supporting their operations as well as their phenomenal volunteers." 

Planning for the unexpected isn’t just about the up keep of your boat and making sure you’ve got all the essentials on board. Sometimes you need a hand and that’s where Coastguard and your insurance can help,” he said. 

We are deeply grateful to Tower for their support - welcome to the Coastguard whānau Tower!
