Hi All!! am new here and to the boating scene, I have always loved go fast boasts since a young age, now I have an opportunity to finally purchase an older, affordable Scarab. The boat in question is a late 70's 38' raised deck Scarab. I can not seem to find anyone to insure the boat as it is over 30 years old and considered a performance boat.
I have contacted both the agents that advertise on this forum and struck out on both, even the referrals turned me down due to age and it being a "performance boat"
A local broker told me that I should tell the insurance companies that it is not a performance boat but rather a "cruiser" the broker told me not to use the name Scarab when I talk to perspective carriers but rather just tell them it is a 38" wellcraft cruiser. Has anyone else done this and what are the implications if i ever need to file a claim?
What are the people that own older Scarabs doing for insurance?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
