Any Insurance Carriers that Don't Require a Survey?

We're out of time and can't get a survey done before we have to pick up the boat. ANy suggestions on perhaps temporary coverage without a survey? Is this possible? Thanks!

Had the same problem and eventually found out that State Farm did not require a survey on my Cal 34. Give them a try.

Are you looking merely for liability or hull coverage as well?

good luck of finding one especially for south fla -- you may try a broker - we use bill hodgens of fort lauderdale - his email is yachtinsure.com - he has been great with us on moving us around to meet our needs
good luck

Here's another suggestion- use the same insurance company as the previous owner.

I chose Robertson & Robertson Yacht Insurance in my area, but it turns out they were also the insurer for the PO. Since they had a survey on record from 4 years prior, they said they would cover me until my report was available.

That was good, because my surveyor took over 30 days to produce a written report In the end, the insurance company helped me with that too, since the surveyor (who was avoiding my calls & not returning messages) was on their "recommended" list.
