Insurance for Cruising Central America?

Hey everyone - we are planning a multi-year sailboat cruise from San Francisco at least as far as Costa Rica, perhaps even through the Panama Canal to the Caribbean. The boat is a Beneteau Oceanis 50, completed in 2012.

What are the best insurance options for such a trip? I'm looking for a fully comprehensive set up and would love your advice on the best providers.

All suggestions gratefully received - thanks in advance!

Re: Insurance for Cruising Central America?

We did the same trip on our Catalina 470... Pantaenius was the best price, especially Mexico and Central America.

I would suggest you go through an Insurance Broker to find the best price for your boat. We used International Marine Insurance Services (IMIS)

The one thing I can tell you is take you time sailing through Mexico and don't miss the Sea of Cortez, it was our favorite cruising grounds between San Francisco and Florida.

Re: Insurance for Cruising Central America?

when cruising mexico the latest news is the insurance MUST be from mexican carrier.
MARINERS group` has that covered and is not expensive. you will need liability insurance in mexico even for checking into country.
my liability coverage was 185 usd for a year.
they do have comprehensive plans, as well, but i do not know pricing.
