If the claim had been under my Pantaenius Yacht Policy, I'm quite sure I could have reopened it. However, that policy specifically excludes coverage while transporting the yacht, which is when the lighting incident happened. We did take out a separate policy, also with Pantaenius, for the transport (arranged through Seven Star/Dockwise both owned by Spliethoff). As such your "yacht" is no longer a "yacht" but is classified as "Marine Cargo". All claims are subject to full depreciation ($35K of our $42K equipment damage was not covered) and you must sign off on all future claims in order to get your check.
A word to the wise if you are contemplating shipping your boat.

PS. They did cover installation costs which more than covered the equipment and I did all the work myself, so came out just fine financially. Others on the ship who had damage, but are not crazy DIY guys like me, took significant money losses.

It is the first thing I thought of, and I think even a closed claim can be reopened.
