    Best & lowest yacht policy for a 38xx company?

    I am looking to change my boat policy from state farm as it appears to be way to high.

    Contact Robinson Mauer, Welts in Seattle. There had my boats and collector cars for years. My 3818 w/175 Hinos is around $600 for this year and coordinated with my umbrella policy and marina. My cruising range is from Olympia to the northern tip of Vancouver Island on the inside. It was a significant drop in cost against my 2950 Sunbridge with gassers.

        I use Anchor Marine in Seattle. IIRC the premium is around $750 ish annually for a stated value of $75K and 1 mil liability. Of course the premium would drop with a lower value.

            Consider looking at a marine policy. The big auto providers don't necessarily have the coverage you will really need (that's why they are cheaper). Be sure to carefully read the restrictions. A good marine agent can tell you differences in standard policy's versus marine policies and what is or is not covered. Then you can really compare apples to apples. I found that even our first Boat US policy was somewhat restrictive/lacking. Now we use Chubb and Markel.

                  Pau Hana worked for Anchor Marine. He is now on the underwriting side of the business. I have a travelers policy thru Anchor. They have been good to work with. Reasonable price. No claims so I don’t know how they would actually perform.

                      I'm currently talking to Chubb (ACE American) and Boat US regarding insurance for a 39 Marinette. I also currently have State Farm.
                      Chubb seems to have better coverage at lower prices. Christy with W&T Insurance is the contact in Ohio - 440-331-0351. They specialize in marine insurance.
                      Let me know what you think.
