Re: Insurance, berthing near Sydney Australia
Berth or mooring ? Their marina is not brilliant but Balmain Marine is a good place for mooring. For Sydney it is reasonably priced and fairly placed placed for acces to the city itself. It's a couple of nautical west of the Harbour Bridge. For marina berths Birkenhead is not bad. There are also a couple of pretty good marina's in Middle Harbour.
If you are leaving the boat here until 2016 make sure you have checked out import duties and the like. A foreign owned vessel in Australia may attract various taxes though that will depend on exactly how long the boat is kept here.
Nautilus Marine and/or Club Marine seem to be the preferred insurers. We have our boat with Anchorage but after our experience with them when we made a claim I am not happy to recommend them.
White Bay 06 may be able to offer dry storage but I don't know for how long.
