Insurance in the Caribbean

It appears that I am close to buying my first cruiser. It will probably lay in dry dock for a year in the south-east coast hurricane zone.

Will I need insurance to repair or replace the boat if it is trashed by a hurricane or will the boat yard''s insurance cover this?

In a year or so, we will be cruising the Caribbean and Central America for a year or two, then probably the east coast of South America. After that, it''s probably off to the Med.

Will Offshore Risk Managenment cover all these locations in one policy? Do the rates differ depending on your sailing location? Does this company offer different rates for replacement value as opposed to depreciated value? And how are rates determined?

I ended up with offshore risk management also.
you need a survey, pictures, and other information. Beth is the contact there. It took a couple of weeks to get it all straightened out. they do business via e-mail and fax machine

Very frustrating isn''t it?!?! Just went through this myself. After trying to get the attention from several insurance brokers, I wound up with Offshore Risk Management.

Insurance in the Caribbean

Looking for info on insurance for the Caribbean.

What companies are providing insurance?

Will be in Caribbean for at least 6 months.

Who provides insurance for boats that just want to sail everywhere?
