In today’s, very interesting & informative, AYOG ZOOM meeting Joel POTTER also specifically warned for the escalating boat insurance problems and to make sure you are able to obtain cover BEFORE buying a boat.


It might not be a problem in EUROPE however it surely is a problem in USA, CARIBBEAN as well as in SOUTH PACIFIC.

See if your EUROPEAN carrier is willing to ensure you sailing in any of these waters without either excessive premiums and/or excessive (long/lat; named storms; calendar block out periods etc.) restrictions/conditions.

In Europe there is no problem to get an insurance.

This must be a US problem.

Just attended this morning the OCC (Ocean Cruising Club) Annual Meeting.


During the meeting it was mentioned that it is becoming very difficult to obtain insurance for our boats and an ad hoc vote was taken asking if the OCC should get involved.

Abt. 83% voted YES; about 4% NO and 13% NO OPINION.


Clearly more & more boat insurance is becoming a problem but not every AMEL owner is aware of this right now until they are being declined for renewal.


We have a small group of AMEL owners researching the possibility of getting coverage where we are more involved/in control. Although we have had a respectable number of feed back on our survey so far we still would like to have more in order to have a meaningful discussion with re-insurance/front companies. The survey is completely confidential; with the exception of JB none of the research team members have access to the completed surveys!!!

Attached the survey results so far.


Therefore: IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY, please help us by filling out the survey at:
