Re: Insurance carriers
I am assuming you are USA flagged?
I spent a lot of time on insurance after Pantaenius USA changed their Caribbean policy requirements to a point where it was just about impossible to comply.
If you are not planning on being anywhere near the Caribe during the season, try talking to Scott:
Scott Stusek | Vice President
PANTAENIUS America Ltd.
500 Mamaroneck Avenue |Harrison, NY 10528 | United States of America
Another option that may work for you is an awesome company called Novamar. It is an A-Rated insurance company with a really easy to understand policy. The contact is Chris. He is an independent agency who writes a lot of policies for Novamar.
Chris Boome Insurance Agency
751 Laurel Street #216
San Carlos, CA 94070
O: 650-517-3160 C: 650-464-0728
Both of the companies above will offer a stated value / declared value policies.

Having been dropped by Travelers we are receiving quotes for coverage for East Coast US and Caribbean (not hurricane season). Age is apparently a factor in rates and Aletes is a 1998 hull. Received quote from IRSUS Inc./Aspen American Insurance Company for $4797 on hull value of $225,000 with 5% deductible. Does anyone have experience with this company?
Geico quote was $5808 with 4% deductible.
