We have received very good service and affordable coverage through Seaworthy Insurance.

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

Re: Marine Insurance Help

FWIW after Hurricane Sandy a local yard told me there was a huge difference between BoatUS and other companies in terms of getting adjusters out, working with the yard and cutting checks.

Re: Marine Insurance Help

I'll second the recommendation of Progressive. When our Catalina was totaled in Hurricane Sandy, they had a surveyor out within a week or two of the marina being "reopened" (or at least safe to enter). It took them a few weeks to process the payment, but nothing unreasonable. The storm hit in October and I think we were paid by December or January. When you consider that they couldn't get to see the boat until mid-November, and the incredible number of boats that were damaged, I don't think that's bad.
