Re: new boat age insurance costs

Marinas near me are demanding Two Million liability,,and i have heard that they,the insurance agencies are being very selective(age of boat)about what boats they will or will not insure.
They love taking your money,,but they sure don't like the other side of the insurance equation,,that sometimes it is necessary to pay out.
So do we all have to buy Million Dollar Yachts to get insurance now??? is that the wave of the future??
