Where do you have your wood GB Insured

Where do you have your wood GB Insured

Postby M/V Pokalong » Sun May 27, 2018 7:45 pm

I have a wood 1973 42 on the west coast, and my insurance broker told me he thinks his go-to provider for wood boats (Markel) will likely not insure it even with a 14 month old survey. Any suggestions for other insurance options? I looked up USAA but their provider is Markel.

Any suggestions appreciated,

Chris

Try Anchor Maríne Underwriters or Boat US (now through Geico).

Maybe they would accept it along with a current supplement as to present condition from your surveyor. It shouldn't cost that much.
Good luck,

I have my 1970 GB 42 insured through Boat US and have had the policy on this boat for 13 years. As Bjorn mentioned it is now associated with Geico so I am not sure what will happen when t comes to renewal time.


I had a sales survey when I bought the boat in 2005 but I have not been asked for a survey since then.

It is not expensive.

Fair winds.

Thank you to everyone. I will be following the leads you provided this week. After this 48 hour shift ends tomorrow morning I'll head down to the boat and get some pictures of the engine room that some of the applications require. Thank again,

Chris

Boat US. Renewal on a woodie is not a problem.

State Farm came through, and with a lot less paperwork than most. Very hassle free, so now we can look forward to a cruise in a few weeks.

We also have ours thru State Farm. We are in Alameda, but the policy is thru our Rep in Santa Cruz. Also have a house and some cars thru them. We have the Dingy and Motor insured separately from the boat. I always wonder about how they would be with a claim though. They never asked about our boat experience (we had none) or a survey. The policy is very reasonable.
