Default Progressive "no policies for boats over 30 ft"?

I just tried to get an insurance quote from Progressive, there website says no policie for vessels larger than 30 ft? Now what do I do? I know someone will say "call sy goldberg" price would be too high and too many exclusions for miami-dade county.

I just insured a 36 Concept with Progressive. They wrote this policy under their Progressive/Drive Insurance Co. I had never heard of that division. Hope this helps.

That is who my insurance is thru, Progressive Drive, via Bob L. @ worldwide. Although, I live in Brevard Co., I guess for now, we are not as big a risk, as you guys are down south!
Call Bob L. @ Worldwide, he will try to help you out.
