PCP will become famous soon enough
Try a boat specialized company like Pantaenius

American Yacht Insurance

That's an international company based on Monaco. I have been insured by them and I thought they had the best prices and coverage till someone make me an offer on behalf of Groupama (the ones from the French boat on the VOR) and I could not believe on that offer

But they have insurance only on Europe even if my boat will have a world wide insurance, for less than a limited insurance from Pantaenius.

Regards

Paulo

Southron, 30 years is a limit for saome insurers. Others will take older--especially if you are a pre-existing customer. Some will insure "anything" for a current customer, but not right new business for a stranger. Financing, your sailing experience, construction type, also will all affect their decisions. A professional marine brokerage like IMIS can place you almost all the time, sometimes not cost competitive but professional means sometimes you don't get any surprises down the line, either. "Auto" insurers who do boats may not cover environmental damage, wreck removal, and other significant exposures.

Have my 22 yo sailboat insured, my 3 cars, my house, my umbrella policy, and now my new horse trailer all insured with Nationwide. Nobody can touch the prices I am getting, and my agent is the best (yes they get a Christmas present from me this year, as always!).

I always shop other insurance co's but keep coming back to my local nationwide rep, he's nearly impossible to beat. But again, I'm an existing customer. My boat is small, my trailer will be used hard. The horse trailer is 8yo, and we JUST picked it up yesterday. The boat is 22yo worth less than $6k, and they didn't hesitate to insure. I have a loan on the horse trailer, not on the boat.

We bought a 1985 PY27 last week and I got about five quotes. Liberty was the one I went with. BoatUS was competitive, but they required a survey which around here was over 10% of the purchase price. I decided to take my chances without one since I had a good knowledge of the boat's history.

My spirit is insured with Beelzebub Mutual. Lucifer insisted on it when I sold my soul to buy a boat.

I had mine through Foremost in MS. Progressive couldn't beat the price. I'm an Insurance Agent (dirty word) here in MS, and def shopped it around. I can write in most states, so let me know if you can't find something, and I'll check it out.
