My understanding is they changed their cutoff age a few months ago. My 95 Formula is insured through them, but I started with them prior to the change.

Foremost no longer insures boats beyond the 15 yr mark. They recently changed the cutoff age. Not to mention jacked rates up 25% on grandfathered policies. I know mine went way up.

I was told that a new company is coming into the insurance game that will insure old boats but the deal hasn't been inked yet.
