I sincerely hope that this isn't a repeat of an early post, but I felt it was worth sharing.
I've just been shipping
around (no pun intended) for new insurance
Sailboat: 47' (age post 2000)
3rd party liability: $300k
location during hurricane
season: Same as above.
I've had some reasonable quotes with the exception of Pantaenius who were unable to provide a quote. Upon enquiring further, they stated that they could not provide a quotation for any vessel that:
a) Had an agreed hull
value under $500k, AND;
b) Was located below 30.5degN during hurricane
If I was willing to move the boat above 30.5N during 'the season' they could provide a quote.
The only place that i'm aware of on the whole of the Gulf coast
which is above 30.5N is Mobile, Alabama
which is located at 30.68degN.
Evidently, you may be wasting your time requesting insurance
quotes from Pantaenius if you live on the gulf coast
and you don't own a $500k+ vessel..
Has anyone else had similar experiences?
