Liveaboard Insurance

We have put a boat under contract and I need to line up insurance. Previously I used(use) Amica for my yacht policy but they do not insure for liveaboard. I have a quote from BoatUS.

Who else should I consider for insurance. In the near future(~5 years) we will continue to coastal cruise Maine.

I find that it is hard to beat Boat US for Insurance. The company that underwrites for them has been in this business a long time and the fact that you will get an actual "Hull" policy should be of great comfort to you. Most policies are not true hull policies and although less costly will noit cover many of the situations a Boat US policy will. Another thing is that with Boat US you have Boat US in your corner should there be a claim and things get sticky with an insurance adjuster.

Good Luck

I would recommend you look at Ace Recreational Marine and Chubb Marine as possible insurance companies.

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.
