Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Boat Insurance
When we wanted to replace our carrier that we had in Turkey, because they did not cover anything outside of Turkish waters, we discussed the matter with our attorney in Florida that specializes in marine related issues in US and international waters.
After some research on line, we were going to place our insurance with Pantaneous . However, our attorney advised against Pantaneous due to his years of negative experience with Pantaneous. We ended up going with Lloyds of London with an agreed amount limit. Luckily we have not had any claims, so I cannot speak to whether our decision is the correct one. Marine insurance and how each carrier will respond in the event of a loss, is definitely a very grey area,

I spoke to Pantaenius America Ltd today and asked them to explain how they handle agreed on value. They said they would pay policy limits if the boat was a total loss, or whatever it costs to repair it up to the policy limits.
They would not deny my claim for a BBQ on the rail.
They also stated that they pay for damage to the marina, and salvage and disposal of a yacht.
They insisted that they walk me through the policy so there was no misunderstandings.
It is rather clear in their policy that they are correct and straight shooters.

I too have been raped by insurers in the past. I now
have a policy with an "agreed Value" . I hope that
would help in the case of a write off.DannySM

I think you need to tell
the Group “your” story about the insurance.
We have the same insurance
Helvetia contracted through de Lassee and I really think
every Amel owner should know the ridiculous excuses they
used to remove 30% of the value of your boat.
It is not “my” place to
tell everybody the way they treated “you”, but I will
write mine with all the details when it will be settled.
I am definitely sorry that
your vessel was destroy soon after you purchased her and did
not had the joy of sailing her.

impossible for me to
insurance will only pay a fraction of
it would cost me to buy an equal one. Deductibles and
other reasons.This situation not only
ship but my dreams. My dreams
of living on board with my
wife, my dreams
of crossing the Atlantic to the East, my
dreams of sailing the Mediterranean and perhaps other
and finally returning to the beautiful
group I gained friends

for that, I thank each and every one of
you, especially Eric and Alexandre who from the beginning
helped me with their advice.
