Re: Boat Insurance for international cruising

When we first got our boat we used Bill Hodgens of YachtInsure and he was great --

We changed to IMIS and what a great job. They work with us on our cruising plans and we have not had to pick them up off the floor yet. This year we told them we wanted to sail the Black Sea and they said if you go past XX longitude they would have some restrictions but would give us a rider. We notified them that we were about to cross the line and they wrote the rider immediately and worked with us on the time to keep the cost down. Simply great to work with.

What till IMIS hears what I want to do next year.

"What till IMIS hears what I want to do next year."

We just got approval to write nav to Cuba by Markel in our Jackline program, so we can write yachts anywhere on Earth now. BUT, no Lunar missions...

We picked up a policy in Spain, no survey required for $300/yr. In the states it was running $900/yr (just coastal waters similar coverage)
I would second this kind of advice. If you plan to return home, or plan to stay for a prolonged period someplace, finding an agent in one of those places may result in a lower quoted cost. They can sell you a basic annual policy and then add the cruising component to it for the time you need it.

No good if you plan to sail wherever your heart desires for as long as it holds out.

Some years ago I checked Pateneus and was shocked at the price for comprehensive coverage. Maybe things have changed since then.

Re: Boat Insurance for international cruising

This thread is a little old but wanted to add something for future readers.

Seen a few votes for Pantaenuis, and I'm sure they are great, but if you got your boat on the cheap don't bother. Official line was "vessel does not meet minimum hull value for intended navigation." Requested agreed value was $30-$35K (can't remember the exact value I put on the form), intended use was east coast US and Caribbean.

Re: Boat Insurance for international cruising

For 4 years I used London Marine which had great rates and super service. They covered me all over the Caribbean. My friends got hit by lightning in Panama with almost $30K damage. Paid off right away. They are based in London. Google them
