Geico needs to step up and cover some higher HP boats, last time i checked they would not even cover V hulls over 80 mph

Default Cat Insurance? Try Chartis/AIG

They might be inclined to write it as part of a bigger personal insurance package (high value home/cars/umbrella/jewelry, etc). We've been quite successful getting them to write exotic boats/cars, etc. Google AIG Preferred Client or Chartis. They can direct you to a local agent. The premiums are much lower and coverages are much better than what you can get with a "stand-alone" boat policy. Good luck.

We have AIG Preferred everything, house cars jewerly, umbrella, etc.. and they would cover the sea ray and fountain cc - not only would they not touch the cigarette, but also specifically excluded it from our umbrella!

I went with Sy Goldberg at Total Dollar. He was $300 cheaper than Stacey. Don't know for sure if he insures cat's but I can't imagine that he wouldn't.

i got a 30 foot cat with twins out boars and is sitting in my house without insururance and i live in hollywood Florida.
not a good situation, i had to pay the loan off or else they were forthplace insurance to the boat.
