insurance co. droped us

Wondering what other sailboaters are doing if their boats were kept in Florida?
We are a 1976 Allied Princess 36' boat and keep it in Florida (currently in Indian Town Fl. ) We have called a few ins co. but they all say they no longer insure boats over 30 feet in Florida. We cruise each year in the Bahamas and then store the boat for 3-5 months each year. We just don't want to have to head up north to store the boat each year. Any ideas out there?

Did you try Progressive?

The web quote might even be able to tell you if 30+ is coverable without a phonecall.

Do you store the boat on the hard or in the water? Do you have a caretaker when the boat is stored?

Call Christine Hartge, in Annapolis, at Hartge Insurance. She can probably find you a policy that will work.

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.

Some of the companies aren't writing policies for boats that age, too, regardless of the shape they're in.

yes to both ?'s. Indiantown requires one stand per 8' of boat and two 4" straps on ea. side to ratchet down with. We also have a contract with a boat sitting service.

I have used United Marine Underwriters on occassion. They are a broker for marine insurance. Their Number is: 800-477-7140. I believe it is Tom Jackson that I have used before. He is very knowledgeable.

Boat US came in cheaper for me this year, so I did not renew with them.

Hope that helps. If you google for marine insurance, there are a lot of hits.

Good luck.

Try www.IMIScorp.net out of Annapolis. They took good care of us when we had a big claim.
