Alan R. Mott (Alan R. Mott Agency, Inc. - Marine Insurance) does a huge business in my neck of the woods. Excellent rates and easy to deal with.

I can reccomend a company to avoid... USAA they outsource and use progressive... the cost is 70% the price of my boat per year.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

l0keman: WTFrig? Did you write off 5 boats in a row? My insurance is 1% of my boat's value and this is my first year owning a boat.

BoatUS works for me (33 year old 24' sailboat), pretty inexpensive and painless to deal with.

Kind of depends on what you paid for your boat, now doesn't it...

Ditto BoatUS

Ditto BoatUS, I've bought CNA coverage through them for seven years, excellent service and very easy to work with. I highly recommend.

hmmm, I just enrolled through USAA and they outsourced me through Markel Marine Insurance because of my boat specs. I have a 25 year old boat first time owner and they insured me for about 1% of my boat value with coverage on the entire east coast to bahamas, excluding hurrican season.
