Savannah Marine is New National's dedicated marine and cargo UMA. Owners and managers Granville and Renette La Vita have been in association with us since 2002.
Savannah's mandate to underwrite this specialised class of business is to focus on cargo imports, exports, stockthroughput and goods in transit, commercial hull, pleasure craft and boat builders risk insurance. In addition, Savannah also offers training and assists clients with risk management, insurance solutions and claims advice. The company is permitted to service all intermediaries thoughout South Africa and Namibia and the scope of cover is worldwide.
Granville and Renette have served the industry for a combined 70 years. We believe that in addition to their professionalism and great service, their passion for training and mentorship in the industry is a great model for sustainable small business operators countrywide.
Over the past years I have had nothing less than excellent dealings with Savannah Marine. Granville and his team continually give efficient, reliable and friendly service. I can strongly recommend using Savannah Marine as marine insurance underwriters.
RIPSOLD & ASSOCIATES
I normally only contact Savannah Marine for quotes, because the minimum premiums of the others are too high. Savannah is usually very quick and always a pleasure to deal with the staff due to their friendliness

The friendly staff and the efficient service always received, makes dealing with Savannah Marine, on behalf of our clients, an absolute pleasure. Whether the request is for information, a quote, the issuing of cover, or to assist our clients in efficiently dealing with any claims arising.
A recent claim left us with a very happy client, extremely complimentary of the efficient, gentlemanly and expert way in which staff at Savannah Marine had dealt with and resolved their dilemma.
