Re: European Insurance Coverage for US Citizen

My wife and I are doing the same thing, and insurance is the hold-up. We are buying a UK boat and are US citizens planning to re-flag the boat in the US. We have already received the green light from the USCG regarding documentation, but finding insurance for cruising the UK, Baltic & Mediterranean before returning to New England has proved to be much more difficult. I suspect this is more due to us not having the right contacts, but still there seems to be a vacuum of information. We have tried several of the companies listed above, but no luck yet. Pantenaus(sp) for example does not insure American flagged boats anymore.
Please keep sending in those ideas and concrete resources!

Re: European Insurance Coverage for US Citizen

Good afternoon Stan

Your wife Lynn has already contacted us and we've already responded to her email. We should be able to assist.

Re: European Insurance Coverage for US Citizen

Thanks Bill, glad to know. For the Forum's sake, why do you think American flagged vessels are being more isolated from the international insurance market? Are we worse sailors, more litigious, or trust evaporated after recent politics? This seems like a good point for people to try to understand.
