AAffordable Boat Insurance for Remote Areas?

Hi I am planning a trip to the polar regions (Arctic) and have a 1976 31ft Hallberg Rassy. I don't want to break the bank on insurance can anyone suggest an insurance company that is affordable and may cover polar regions?

For more information you can check out my voyages blog at Northwest passage on a shoestring


thank you!

Insurance policies are based on the risks involved... and taking a 31' boat into Artic waters involves a lot of risk, so the prices are going to be fairly astronomical. What kind of coverage were you looking for? How many crew are you going to have? Talking to a good agent is probably your best bet.

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.

Take the money you are prepared to spend on insurance and spend it on making your boat as totally prepared as possible. I can't imagine an insurance company writing a policy on a venture like this - they would have no realistic way to judge the risks. If a policy was offered it would be frightfully expensive.
