Default canadian boaters! Who insures your over 500HP boat???

Called 2 places that are actually trying to quote me on insurance for a Formula 382 twin 500 EFI + vortech...

Answer is: we don't find any ins. co. for this market ( looks like they fear blowers) They are still trying to contact other company but I think it hard to believe...

It's not a 160 mph cat, it's only a 85 mph V...

So you writes your policy with a similar boat / engine package?

Thanks!

I had a bit_h of a time getting insurance on my boat (2005 25 Outlaw with a 375 mag). I have a perfect record and perfect credit but no regular insurance company even wanted to deal with it. I'm now with Premier Marine...pay about $1400.00 a year. Best of luck to ya.

Jeff. Maybe I can get you in on my fleet discount! LOL
Here is something to be aware of. They will give you a 10% discount if you have an alarm system ( I expect it would need to be monitored ) also another 10% discount if kept on a lift. Worth looking into.
