Need Input on Insurance Companies

I'm looking for insurance on a 32 foot 2011 Racer Cruiser to be cruised in the Chesapeake (possibly also do the Delmarva rally in a few years).

So far I've gotten a quote from BoatUS and Marks Marine (ACE American is the insurance carrier for Marks). I have yet to fill out the form for Pantanenius Insurance.

I've had BoatUS for over 10 years on my current 26-footer.

Marks offered better vessel coverage (agreed hull value) and a lower premium rate for their "Yachtsman Policy" than the BoatUS quote I received, and Marks will let me do limited offshore (25 mi.), whereas BoatUS is Chesapeake and tributaries only.

Anyone have any experience with Marks or Pantanenius? I want to make sure I'm not shooting myself in the foot because I'm chasing the more attractive quote from Marks.

Thanks, Leon.
