Peter,

The Agean has been lively for a week and will continue through this week...3 meter seas and 20-35kts. We are in Naxos until things calm down. We are going to take a ferry to Santorini and stay overnight in a hotel on Saturday when the weather has calmed. In 2011 we took BeBe to Santorini and anchored in the caldera...amazing.

We have had insurance with Assurances Maritimes de Lassée in France for about 4 years. We have no complaints...but, of course, we have not had a claim. Others in the Amel Group have recommended them.

Hello Peter & Bill,

That is some serious sea you have there!

On my insurance policy (also from de Lassée), I can not sail for more than 24 hours solo without anchoring in a safe protected place, etc.

I disagree with the Pantaenius statement below.

 

I have been with Pantaenius and maintain Cream Puff inside the hurricane zone. Florida can be a very difficult place to obtain good boat insurance at a reasonable price and Pantaenius meets the mark. They are priced in the market at slightly above average, the customer service is exceptional and they offer fixed value coverage (no depreciation factor as a vessel ages) all around the globe.

 

Unless someone has a factual claim to support a negative review on a company, please refrain from broad trash statements.

 

Best regards,

 

Mark

My wife and I have just finished an extensive search for the right Insurance for our circumnavigation in 2015.
Seaworthy (Through Mariners in San Diego) had too many conditions and exclusion zones. We tried Pantaneius but again had too many conditions and were the most expensive. We were quoted through two sources including through the Blue Planet Oddyssey (we are confirmed participants) who aparently supposed to get a special rate. 
Long story made short, we just paid our premium to Top Sail in Brighton (UK) with the policy underwritten by Royal and Sun Alliance PLC in the UK. Most comprehensive coverage, one of the most competitive rates.
I would urge you to contact Daniel Groves who is exteermly courteous and profession in his dealings. (Never once had to follow up on anything as I had to with Mariners)

My experience with Pantaenius  was this:
I sailed from the Caribbean to the Med and arrived 4 weeks after my Caribbean contract run out. I had to stay another 11 month inside the Med with a Caribbean contract which in my case was 3000.-€
more expensive. I never had a claim.
Also Pantaenius did not insure my boat proper in the hurricane season: 
North of 10"N I would have only been insured not at anchor, not in a harbor and not on a mooring.
In case of a named tropical storm my only options would have been sailing. Thanks but no thanks.
Now I will go with Bavaria Yacht Insurance where I'll pay 500€ less and my deduction is only 1000.-€ instead of 4000.-€ with Pantaenius... It does not mean they are better or worse. It's still an insurance company.....
This is all said about Pantaenius Germany, which is probably different from the US.
In my case the only good customer service I received was taking my money...

I disagree with the Pantaenius statement below.

 

I have been with Pantaenius and maintain Cream Puff inside the hurricane zone. Florida can be a very difficult place to obtain good boat insurance at a reasonable price and Pantaenius meets the mark. They are priced in the market at slightly above average, the customer service is exceptional and they offer fixed value coverage (no depreciation factor as a vessel ages) all around the globe.

 

Unless someone has a factual claim to support a negative review on a company, please refrain from broad trash statements.

Peter,

 

The Agean has been lively for a week and will continue through this week...3 meter seas and 20-35kts. We are in Naxos until things calm down. We are going to take a ferry to Santorini and stay overnight in a hotel on Saturday when the weather has calmed. In 2011 we took BeBe to Santorini and anchored in the caldera...amazing.

 

We have had insurance with Assurances Maritimes de Lassée in France for about 4 years. We have no complaints...but, of course, we have not had a claim. Others in the Amel Group have recommended them.

We have Pantaenius Sweden and I don't recognize anything what you say.

You can change sailing area when ever. You don't have to wait until a certain date, you just let them know when to change to the new area. If the new area is mor expensive you will have a higher cost, if you move to a cheaper area they will lower your cost.

During hurricain season in Caribbean you can be where ever you want, as long as your NOT on anchor during a hurricane/named storm.

Also, you decide the value of your boat and pay insurance fee depending on that and your sailing area. If you have a failure and need to use the insurance they do not do any deduction due to age, as all other companies do. Except in UK where the law says that you have to make a deduction.
There is no limitation on personal items or electronical items onboard. You don't have to pay extra for dingy and outboard motor.
 With our previous insurance company we were only allowed 1 PC on board and it only covered electronics for 10,000 Euros. We also hade to send a list every year on all electronicals. Personal items was insured with 1000 euros a person. And the dingy with motor was not included, hade to have a separate insurance for it.

All employees at Panaenius Sweden are reputated sailors, some of them have worked as surveillors before there employment with P and all of them know what sailing is about and how a sailboat functions

So I can really recommend you to contac them. See my earlier posting in the subject.

Summer season covers area from Jacksonville to Newfoundland and out to east of Bermuda. No deductible for lighting strikes, etc. I will be sending in my application this week unless someone knows something I don't.

As I posted somewhere else, I have been using Assurances Maritimes de Lassée.  Will renew for the fourth time  and I did have a claim last year!

I was surprised how easy it was. I may add that it was a small claim (<3.000 euros),  just to fix the electric gangway.

 I had almost nothing to prove the problem since it occurredd while I was at home, an Ocean apart.  Mr de Lassée   made the right questions, assumed his client (me) was not a lier, and arranged payment.  I was impressed. 

Of course I was completly honest about what had happen and it worked.

I take this opportunity to thank Bill (BeBe), whose info led me to chose these guys. 

You should give them a try.

Peter,

The Agean has been lively for a week and will continue through this week...3 meter seas and 20-35kts. We are in Naxos until things calm down. We are going to take a ferry to Santorini and stay overnight in a hotel on Saturday when the weather has calmed. In 2011 we took BeBe to Santorini and anchored in the caldera...amazing.

We have had insurance with Assurances Maritimes de Lassée in France for about 4 years. We have no complaints...but, of course, we have not had a claim. Others in the Amel Group have recommended them.

Tell her that you want a quote on a policy like BeBe has. Also get her to email you a quote and a copy of their policy in English. They specialize in Amels.

I think you will be happy with the policy and quote.

All,

From what I have seen over the years, I have to assume that one Pantaenius region or office has little to do with another region or office. I imagine it is possible to be very satisfied with one regional office, then have an issue with another.

I also believe that insurance discussions should include regions. As an example, we had "Jackline" insurance written in the US by Al Golden. The policy looked good to us when we bought it, but It seemed that every new part of the world we visited required that we pay some sort of surcharge that was never discussed in the beginning, even though Mr. Golden knew our situation. 

After 4 years and while we were in New Zealand, we had a chance to buy a Pantaenius policy from a local agent. It was a good policy and about 1/3rd less than what we had been paying Al Golden. A year later when we were to renew, they informed us that they would not insure us at all in a major portion of the Indian Ocean. We had to change again and to do it we had to get a new survey because our survey was over 5 years old.

This is when we met Françoise GODINEAU assurances-delassee.com>. The policy is very good and even covers repatriation if you become very ill. The policy states that they will ship you repair parts at your next port if something fails while at sea. There are many other details that are beneficial like the absence of a hurricane box. In their "Europe" zone, we pay about half of what insurance written in the US would cost us. The downside to us as Americans is that they will not insure us in US waters and they will not insure a boat with a homeport in US waters. Our homeport is St. Thomas and we are US Documented with a US address on the Documentation.

If you are not in US waters, or plan to leave US waters and you do not have a US homeport (which you can change if you do), I would write and ask for a quote like BeBe has and a sample of the policy in your language. I know they have English.

I hope this helps and clears a few things up.

I just got a quote from the local Pantentaenius broker , summers on the Chesapeake,  Nov.- April in the Caribbean , for $ 3070. for $280,000 face value.

No deductible for lighting strikes, etc. I will be sending in my application this week unless someone knows something I don't.

I disagree with the Pantaenius statement below.

I have been with Pantaenius and maintain Cream Puff inside the hurricane zone. Florida can be a very difficult place to obtain good boat insurance at a reasonable price and Pantaenius meets the mark. They are priced in the market at slightly above average, the customer service is exceptional and they offer fixed value coverage (no depreciation factor as a vessel ages) all around the globe.

Unless someone has a factual claim to support a negative review on a company, please refrain from broad trash statements.

Scott is putting a package together for those attending the Chesapeake Bay Rendezvous in July. Also,  Scott has other special considerations for Amel owners. I believe Richard Pillar was instrumental in that benefit.
