I have big power and no lay up so my insurance is high. Worldwide is probably the best to get a quote through. The 525 boats run good and are very dependable and you are dealing with a very stand up guy in Randy.

i got one and it was no problem, it is just gonna cost you a little more... keep the power mild and it isn't a big deal, now get 1000HP and above, $$$$$$$

yeah bob l is already my ins. guy but its a big change from what i am use to on my 2nd fountain and love the thing but as everyone knows always want to go faster. a big concern is reliability i do not want to work on the boat all week to get it ready for the week-end that is the big reason for the 525's

I got a 36 w/525's from Randy in december. Awesome boat. great to deal with. The boat is amazing in rough water. I was very skeptical about a cat but am very happy we went with one, espceially the nortech. Its heavy wide and has a high freeboard which make it handle much better in rough water.
Insurance for me was tough becaue im 21 with no cat experience. I took Tres Martins course though so now i can get insurance. I highly reccomend taking the course, not only for insurance purposes, but no matter how long youve been boating, you will learn a tremendous amount. Call SY Goldberg at total dollar about insurance
