During the Second World War, vessels assisted in the evacuation of Dunkirk, the D-Day landings, and the liberation of Europe. In the following decades Everard’s fleet grew, managing and chartering 450 vessels. In 1969 Everard established itself as one of the UK’s leading independent marine insurance brokers.

Brendon Ladner

Marine Small Craft Division Manager

Brendon has worked in the insurance industry since 2013 when he started at a national brokers servicing private clients. Brendon then went onto work for a local broker in 2016 who specialised in marine insurance, predominantly small craft. Having lived near to the Fishing Port of Newlyn his whole life, Brendon grew up with a passion of the fishing industry and so the new role seemed a perfect fit due to the amount of fishing boats insured. This broker was acquired by James Hallam, the parent company of Everard in May 2021 and combining the knowledge of the two companies was fundamental in creating a new Small Craft Division which Brendon now heads up. His team will look for quotes on any vessel including private & pleasure, fishing, any other commercial, both in the UK and Internationally.
