Hi all we have just moved to an NZ broker and have insured Ocean Pearl for around the NZ coast out to 200 miles for 0.65% of value. Less than half the quote from the US broker for a poorer cover for the same area.

We recently got a quote from Pantaenius, for cruising the southern Caribben area, their rate was not competetive and they were not willing to insure us unless we stored our SuperMaramu in a custom made cradle on the hard during hurricane season (i.e. jackstands, even chained together, were not sufficient).  The requirement for a cradle was just not realistic for us.   Do they have that policy on the Pacific side ?

We are a US based Maramu cruising Mexico. We chose Pantaenius insurance which is a Dutch firm with US office in NY. The rates and coverage are in our opinion, excellent.

We recommended Pantaenius to some fellow cruisers who chose to insure with them. Several months later their boat was struck by lightning in Mazatlan. They reported that Pantaenius has been a pleasure to deal with regarding the claim. In fact they leave the claim open for a year in case additional damage is discovered from the lightning strike.
