This is unbelievable to me. You should be able to get insurance for about half that. At least that is what I was paying for my 272 with stock 502. That boat will not do over 70 which seems to be the magic number for most insurance companies. (Have you called Progressive?) My PQ340 will do 80 and none of the major companies would write me. All of the marine insurers gave me ridiculous guotes. Thank you Sy. He is a straight shooter and offers a great policy.Originally posted by mlitefan
So far, my experience sucks. I am buying a 2000 Sunsation 288 with a stock 502 and so far, the cheapest quote has been $1150.00.
Good insurance is a must. I had a 232 burn up in a boatel fire in '98. Had Allstate at the time. They set up a trailer on site after the fire. I stoped by and had a check for the purchase price of the boat in about 30 minutes. Boat was 4 years old at that time.
