MM Davis has been very expensive for us. I am with Premier Marine now, but Oglivie and oglivie did give me a lesser quote. But only by $200.00

Question, do you not have an insurance broker? They can shop them all for you.

Thanks Buck

The 2% sounds more like it Jean Francois. That's about half of what I have been quoted so far. Still expensive but not so ridiculous. I'll also call Ogilvie this morning.......thanks alot!

Canada Jeff.........Yes I do have an insurance agent that handles all our business and personal insurance but I tried him with my Baja previously and again with the Sunsation and apparently none of the companies he deals with cover these types of boats.........just ski boats and fishin boats. I'll try Premier for a quote too......thanks.

DC,
My agent in Toronto is Purves/Redmond 1-800-465-1137 and the marine policy is through Continental Casualty.
Good luck!

Thanks a bunch guys! Got it from Premier for less than half of my original quote. Have a great week-end!

Premier Marine is supposed to be good in the recreational market. I just bought a log cabin on an island in Lake Nipissing/Upper French that nobody wants to insure but my agent is going to try Premier Marine. Maybe the boat will end with them too.
Four grand is frightning but eight grand is scary!

4k is a lot of money for insurance,8k is worst but in my case,i would be very happy just to have to pay that.for my cat,=500000.00$valuex3%=15000.00cdn.my boating season is 15 weeks so it is 1thousand a week for protection.maybe it will help you feel better.if we start thinking of all it is costing us we will get crazy and hate our boat.

Nor3600.....my boat is less than half of that $ but you're right, if you're going to play, you have to pay! I just prefer not to add up all the toy costs on a weekly basis as you have done as it would make me crazy!!
