IMHO the loss is always larger than the premium you paid so dealing with an insurer and agent that wants to honor their promise to pay a claim is a better idea than saving a few bucks on the premium.

Work is the curse of the boating classes

Wow, reading all these posts makes me a little bit queasy about the fact that I just renewed with bluewater last week. May I never have a claim. They were one of the few that seemed willing to insure a steel hull, also with Santam.

i had a storage insurance with them ,and they were the cheapest from all of them . This year when we had to renew it ,the price went up $300.
But the price for the navigational insurance was $2400 versus $3330 from international and they are advertising that their insurance is "old for new" , which means if you have damage to your boat they will replace it with new ,without depreciation cost .But what happen if you boat sinks, will I get a new one?

Bluewater Blues

To All:
Since I am new to "cruising" and had no idea that there were only one or two insurance companies in the US that would write a policy for my Morgan 43, I sent inquiries out to anyone who wrote marine insurance anywhere. What I found was that only a few could offer the coverage and when I chose to go with a local firm who had already covered my vessel with the former owner I received a nasty e-mail from Bluewater stating that my "file" would be "flagged" and I would never be able to purchase insurance from them. I explained my position to the jerk at Bluewater only to have him send me another blistering e-mail and rantings about being cheated out of commission. I informed him that Bluewater was now on my *(&^ list and I would notify all of the cruisers that I met of my experience with his company and so here it is.........stay away from this guy ----- he's not very nice to deal with and there are nicer folks out there.

If that's true I am sure that would open up a can of worms
SAILING is not always a slick magazine cover!
BORROWED..No single one of is as smart as all of us!

Re: Bluewater Insurance

Thanks All,
Being "new" to cruising, and looking forward to the Great Lakes before cruising Blue Water, this insurance info has been most helpful.
Thanks agan,
