Just make sure the underwriters know it's a cat. I've heard horror stories where the agent says you're covered, you buy the boat and two weeks later get cancelled!

yea i hear you...the first agency I called (progressive) wanted nothing to do with me once I said it's an Eliminator

these guys (foremost) just asked me if I planned on racing it and I said no, they said "are you sure" and I chuckled and said yes...and that was it...

I've got a buddy who does insurance and I asked him about a quote on a little Skater recently. Came back with under $800 per year. Seems like the guys going ape on the cat insurance are the guys looking to jump into a 36' Skater as their first boat. Not that insurance isn't high for the big cats, but boat size, value and prior cat experience are critical.

Shawn did I save you the trouble of posting?

That would be very cheap for cat insurance.

Read an ad for a 2000 26 Awesome cat and the guy claimed only $600 a month on insurance.

Good luck! And contact Insurance God (Empower Marine Insurance) here on OSO. He's a great dude, a hard core boating nut and he'll do everything he can to get you insured in that boat for a fair price.

Here's the link to his site.
