What is the stated value of the boat?
My State Farm rep told me that they require a survey on boats with a replacement value of over $20k. I insured a Catalina 25 with a stated replacement value of $8k with no survey. My Pearson is insured for more and I did need to get a survey.
Different agents and different regions may of course vary. I'm in Seattle.
