I''ve been using Progressive but I decided to get some quotes for a boat which I just bought. There is a wide range. BoatUS was twice the premium cost as Progressive, for instance. Anybody care to weigh in here with recommendations or experiences?

insurance

coondogger,

We insured our boat with Allstate for $100K, homeport in FL and valid anywhere within 100nm of lower 48 states. The premium was less than $500 per year and when hurricane Charley did almost $25K in damage to our boat, we had a check in less than 2 weeks with a written promise to pay more if justified.

Others'' experiences may differ, but we feel we did well with Allstate. BTW, our boat is only 5 years old; the age will make a difference to many insurance companies.

Good luck,

Duane

Just went through the insurance hassle, buying a 14 year old boat. Allstate is not writing policies at this time (probably because they had to send out a lot of "timely" checks after Charley). West Marine/BoatUS will not write policies on boats older than 10 years. Got a good deal from NBOA (National Boat Owners Association) 800 248-3512) who just shortened eleigibilty from 20 years to 15 years.
