Default Moving up

Well maybe. I'm going to Pier 57 this weekend to test drive a 2004 38 Lightning. I currently have a 32 Fever. Can anyone help me out with the dreaded insurance? What can I expect to pay and does anyone have a recommendation? Thanks

A lot depends on the hp. Also, will you be traveling or just local?

Well the best I have found so far is $3700 with a 4% deductible. That is with 525 engines and speed of 90. I'm still looking. It pretty bad when the cost of insurance can make the difference between getting or not getting a new boat. Something needs to be done.

If you have a business and have commercial insurance.......it is best to see them and squeeze them. I was in the same boat (no pun)....and the insurance on the new boat was between 3400.00 and 6000.00 with 525's. I finally got it through my commercial business insurance carrier for 1183.00

I used to be with Bob and there was a time when they stopped doing high performance so I got a notice to seek other insurance. I went with Total Dollar and then to Blackadar. I will give Bob a call. Last time I called him we talked about the Smoke on the Water Poker run for about an hour. Nice guy.
