Third party risks, wreck removal, and £2,000,000 personal liability costs about £250 here, in Scotland.
I guess we are getting a good deal. I used to go fully comp, but gave up on it.
We don't have tropical hurricanes, and that helps.
I am not particularly trusting of insurance companies anyway. I don't trust any of them anymore. They are probably bankrupt and haven't told us yet.

You are going to have to shop around THOROUGHLY for insurance quotes to get the best deal on the coverages you want.
I took an intro yacht surveyor course and one exercise was to get a quote for the same boat (Pearson 30') from 4 different carriers: AllState was one IIRC, you should find 3 others and even look at using the insurer that covers your home and auto policies.
You will have to purchase additional insurance for any trips you take outside of your base coverage area; any trips to the Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexico or SA will be additional. I can't remember the name(s) of the international carriers to use either.
I would ask the same question over at this other cruisers forum if you do not get more specific recommendations: CSBB Forum - Message Index

|sab30||I received a quote of approx $3000 a year for $180,000 coverage (we mentioned we would be living aboard) (also includes up to 10% for dinghy and motor) for a Morgan 45. This was on the assumption we were full time cruisers that were outside the "hurricane box" during hurricane season. Im not sure exactly what the "box" includes/excludes and that is onlt my first quote. It seemed a little high but further competitive quotes are needed.|

|jay1956||Wow I'm sorry, I must have fallen asleep. I have a 1974 Morgan O/I C/C #66. I payed $20,000.00 for her and I insured it for #30,000.00. The CSY costs about $145,000.00 built in 1989.|

Yes would depend on area and value of boat for sure. Up north you dont have the Hurricane threat nearly as bad as in Fla. That is the main issue, especially the last few years.
Jay can I ask what years the two boats you mention are? cause yours being 36 would be in the range I am thinking.

|jay1956||I live in Key West Fl. and pay $1450.00 a year for my Morgan 36 O/I, when I lived in Norfolk VA I payed $225.00 a year, the guy in the slip next to me in Key West has a 44ft CSY and pays $5600.00 a year. so it just depends.|

Again, it really depends on the type of boat, the type of sailing, where you're sailing, the size of the area being covered, the value of the boat, the type of the policy, the features of the policy. My current policy is about $1200 a year. I could have a policy that was only $600 a year, but it wouldn't give me anywhere near the same coverage as the policy I have...or the flexibility.

There is not really a standard coverage like autos so it will vary wildly based on deductable , medical ,liabilty
How things are covered in a sinking for example can be a LOT different

Site doesnt work

Does that sound reasonable?
