Default I need insurance for cat

Progressive said no, AAA said no and its a deck boat with only a 496 HO what gives. I think its because its suppose to do 70 or 75. Any ideas. I'm supposed to pick this toy up tomorrow.

For Progressive the HO = NO GO! They won't insure anything with more than 415 HP per motor no matter what the size. They have a question on their applications that ask if > 415 HP, if you answer yes they don't insure it. Note this question is per motor not total HP. I called the 800 # and the moron asking the questions disagreed on the per motor vs. total HP question and said they wouldn't insure my twin 6.2 boat since it was 640 HP (320 X 2 motors). I got through to a supervisor that understood the question correctly in reference to per motor > 415 HP.
If you redo the application and say it is a 496 Mag (non HO 375 HP) I bet Progressive will write the policy.

I just had the same problem last week looking for insurance for a 47 Fountain.Nobody liked the speed of the boat and that I am in Florida Call. Alliance Marine 1-800-441-7755 and speak to John Campbell tell him Mike from Apollo Beach sent you. Total Dollar would not insure the boat and worldwide never got back to me with a quote. John from Total Dollar referred me to Alliance. Mike

Where did you find this?

Their cutoff is at 75mph and 500hp per side:

NO, NO, NO!!! DON'T LIE ON THE APPLICATION. Don't take this advise. If you lie on the application and have a claim, they could refuse to pay your claim and then you'd be screwed.
If a 100+mph cat can get insurance, so can you. Just find the right carrier.

Cig,

Go online and try to get a quote for a 1,000 HP 32/33/35 ft boat. You will get this response:
I think the 500 HP per side is for like a 42 Fountain= TOO SLOW in this boat. The 500 HP is not a blanket qualification. I tried to get a sample quote for a 32 Lavey Craft with 496 HO's and they kicked back this response:


Watercraft Information

Semper, I agreed with your statement 100%. That 50 HP ommission( 496 vs 496 HO) could be real hairy in a claim situtation. I was just trying to show him that the boat being a cat wasn't the problem, the HO motor was.

Okay, makes sense. I guess that's where the 75 mph rule comes into play, whichever comes first.

Thanks.
