Insurance for high latitudes?

Has anyone recently received insurance for high latitude sailing itinerary? Preparing for launch of new boat, a Boréal 52. We recently applied to 3 companies, with a goal in the next year to include Svalbard, then down to Patagonia. We were denied coverage from 2 companies, including Jack line and Pantanius. Our broker for our old boat, based in New Zealand, was able to get Lloyds to insure, but for $21,000 USD!!! We have over 25,000 recent blue water miles experience, and have never filed an insurance claim in 18 years owning 46’ boat. Who are others using, specifically for high latitudes? (We have heard that the last 2 years have seen many companies refuse to insure for high lats). Thanks for any help
