Southron, 30 years is a limit for saome insurers. Others will take older--especially if you are a pre-existing customer. Some will insure "anything" for a current customer, but not right new business for a stranger. Financing, your sailing experience, construction type, also will all affect their decisions. A professional marine brokerage like IMIS can place you almost all the time, sometimes not cost competitive but professional means sometimes you don't get any surprises down the line, either. "Auto" insurers who do boats may not cover environmental damage, wreck removal, and other significant exposures.
