Re: Insurance for older ship cruising the world

We seem to get a little off-topic here.
The original post was:

Does someone have suggestions for insurers who can offer insurance for a 30-year old 50.000 ship cruising the world?

For coastal cruising in the USA you'll find both Gieco and Boat US offer good policies, although they can be expensive if you are based in an area with high storm risk. For long distance world cruising... good luck.
Agree its not worth it to insure the boat (especially older) as your premium over time will almost equal the value of the boat. Liability is what you need for marinas, in case you hit a million dollar yacht or go aground on a protected reef or park.

Probably wouldn't use the over priced Boat US/Geico (they are the same) for coastal US liability insurance. Liability from Allstate, State Farm, etc. is all you need and is much less expensive for the same coverage.
