Ferro Insurance

HI all we have had our beautiful boat insured in australia without problem or claim since it was launched in 2004... now all of a sudden not one insurance company will insure any ferro cement boats... not even third party. this as you know makes it impossible to come into any marinas. We are only want to insure third party.. does anyone have any ideas..... cheers sam

Hay Sam I am just in the process I getting my Hartley Southseas insured for blue water cruising so it will prob be a lillte cheaper if yor not going offshore these people insure ferro Edward William Marine Services SL ( so maybe flick them a mail and see what they think. I am insuring for 51K and it cost $1005 a year full cover, this is the second quote I have had from them and it is a little more expencive ($300) than the first one I got 4 months ago, so I am in the process of finding out why the massive jump. Be intresting to hear what the cost of others insurance is.
Hope that helps

Ferro Insurance in OZ

Hi all whilst researching insurance for what might be my next yacht i recently came across an add in a recent " Coastal Passage" magazine ( no.37 ) 2009 , a broker here in Australia advertising insurance for ferro cement yachts , D & G Marine , somewhere in New South Wales,,, as yet Ive only heard from others that that the premium is 2% for comprehensive insurance + Ive been told by some marina staff comprehensive insurance is the only insurance they'll accept for your entry into a marina berth. Regards Isabell

Why has cover suddenly become hard to find?
Have there been a rush of claims recently for some unknown reason?
