Re: Cruising Insurance
Suggest you try Topsail daniel.groves@... they specialise in tailoring packages.
The problem with blue water is that as you get further and further away from professional help and parts, add to that the possibility of the boat having to be taken back to a port where correct repairs that will ensure the future value of your vessel are carried out.
There are a number of vessels lost mid Pacific every year and sadly all of this is reflected in the premium.
I am currently paying around US $4k to insure total value $500k that is about $1k less than normal as the boat is laid upon Mexico.
Your hemisphere will make no difference to a bona fide insurance company. Just beware that if you were to have a very serious claim then it will be settled within the jurisdiction and courts of the insurer.
