Question About Boat Insurance and Hurricanes

Hello All

We have been Members here for quite awhile and we use the motto of use your eyes and ears twice as much as your tongue, "So not many post"

We are planning of a purchase of a Multihull in the next 2-3 years, I am researching as much as we can to get all info we would need on the ownership of such a Boat.

We live in the Florida Keys and when we get a Multihull we will home port the Vessel here at our Dock in Marathon Florida. There are limited Haul outs here in Marathon for a Beam of 25 feet. As I understand during hurricane season many Insurance companies want the Boat on the hard or ability to move the boat out of Harms way. I have the ability to have a Lift installed that would Lift the Multihull out of the water on a cradle lift and Then be supported out of the water. Would one think this would meet the requirement of being safely on the hard ?

The lift would be engineered to Support the Vessel easily above the water getting it 4-6 feet above Mean high tide. I don't think even some boats on the hard could achieve that.

Thanks for any input in the mater
