It would help a lot if you said what kind of boat and how old it is that you're trying to insure. Some insurers won't touch wooden boats, most won't deal with Ferrocement, and some won't insure boats over 20 years old.

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.

Insurance

Sorry I am new at this. I'm asking the question because we are nearing getting our boat ready to go into a Marina and knowing we need insurance, have no knowledge regarding the matter. We are now in a boat yard and a GOOD percentage of the boats here are just sitting because of insurance claims. That costs the owners in rent and court costs. Some have been sitting for years. So I guess liabilty coverage is all that a person needs. Sorry to have been so vague in my question. Dmarina

You will need to get a survey done or no one will likely insure it...so be prepared to have to fix whatever the surveyor lists out as "Recommendations"...Boat US will give you 30 days to get one done and fix all deficiencies..and give your marina a binder saying so...another kudo to them.

Most marinas require you to have liability coverage, just in case your boat catches fire, so that the damage to the docks and nearby boats can be covered.

There are two types of insurance policies above basic liability: Agreed Value and Actual Cash Value.

The Agreed Value policies pay up to a value you and the insurance company agree on, usually based on the buying/selling price of the boat in the case of a loss. The Actual Cash Value policy pays the actual cash value of the boat, which is often far less than what the boat cost to buy.

Other options include tender/dinghy coverage, electronics coverage, salvage coverage, environmental remediation, etc.

Another company to consider is Progressive. They were half the price of Boat US for me on an agreed value policy.
