Re: Help- New owner of 40ft old sailboat, can't get insurance
As some others have said the big advantage of BoatUS is that they understand boats.
A local yard with an excellent reputation told me BoatUS is the best of the insurance companies they deal with for exactly that reason.
I'm a little surprised that so many posters only carry minimum coverage. For a few dollars more I was able to add replacement coverage for my electronics and insure my boat for an agreed value -- it has a lot of additions a "typical" boat wouldn't have.
I just wish I could find an auto/homeowners company that provided this kind of service.
