Passage insurance

I searched and couldn't find anything on this topic, and can't find an obvious forum so here we go...

Looking for a good bluewater passage insurer for an Atlantic passage. I have acquired a nice 1998 Voyage 500 catamaran (50-foot) in the south of France and need to sail her to the Virgin Islands ASAP. Of course will have all the safety comms gear (SSB, satphone, DeLorme messenger) and will contract a weather/router, but I'm well aware of the fact that I will be skirting the early part of hurricane season. I'm a very experienced sailor with about 40,000 offshore miles.

Any advice in this area would be appreciated.

Re: Passage insurance

We had been with Pantaenius for about 15 years - never filed a claim - yet they refused to cover us for our passage across the Indian Ocean, regardless of what route we took. However, Topsail Insurance not only wrote us a policy that was just as comprehensive as Pantaenius', but the premium was significantly less. We have not yet had the occasion to file a claim with Topsail but we have friends who have and they we're delighted with the process.

Fair winds and calm seas.
