I think you asked this question a while back and all the information that has been found is in the thread: Lemma Insurance Experiences
- - I haven't anything negative about the company in the last few years which is - sort of - a good sign. Normally folks are very quick to complain if they have a bad experience. However, the news and websites for home office in the Ukraine
have nothing newer than 2006 in them. It seems the company formed a branch known as Lemma Europe
in 2007 to handle their European insurance business. But that company's website has nothing newer than 2007 that I can find.
- - There is another thread on the SSCA forum dealing with a Broker in the BVI & Florida Keys
that is using Lemma as an underwriter. Some cruisers have not been very happy with this broker. http://forum.ssca.org/phpBB3/viewtop...t=lemma#p46969
- - But do not confuse "brokers" with the underwriting insurance company - they are two different things. You may have a bad experience with a particular broker and that is a separate issue from the performance/reputation of the actual underwriting insurance company. Other brokers may use the same underwriter/insurance company and have a very good service
reputation. Unfortunately, you have to go through a broker to get a particular underwriter/insurance company, so picking your broker is extremely important.
