Insurance costs in Australia

Hi guys,

Long time lurker.

I'm after some information/experience on insurance costs in Oz.

I'm looking at buying an approx 40' cruiser, something around the 100k mark, which will be berthed in a Queensland marina. The yacht will likely be 1990+. With a view to becoming a live aboard at some point in the future.

Is anyone able to share their experience of monthly insurance costs?

Thanks

Re: Insurance costs in Australia

Be aware that many insurers want an out of water survey beforehand...so you may have to factor in haul out + surveyor $$$$!
