Progressive

Progressive beat the Boat US quote by 40% for me. Of course I have three cars insured with them as well so I'm sure there is some discount built in.

Sailaway50,

Checkout this agent. I got my '87 41 Morgan insured for a good deal less than others with the same or better coverage! She is a very personable lady and really worked for our business.

boat insurance

Rates are dependent upon the market area of your insurer. BoatUS covers the nation including the gulf areas, thus higher costs. Also look at the towing and other coverage including fuel spillage if that is a concern. I have Amereican Family - basically a mid-west great lakes area insurer.

Progressive wont insure any thing over 35 ft or there abouts. I know i tried to insure my 38 ft boat no go. Also Boat US is for the boating comunity like fighting for bilge water legislation like we had passed this sumer. Those other insurance companys care less and dont get involved with all the other progams thats supported by Boat US.

I heard companies don't like to insure older boats, is this true?
Though i'm sure you could insure anything for enough money. My dads older bought insurance quote was close to 20 percent of the insured amount, plus double deductible in a named storm (south florida of course). seems like a scam
