Can somebody recommend an Insurance company for a boat?
I did try to contact one listed in resources, but they didn’t respond to my “contact us” page requests or phone listed on their website.
Thanks in advance,
Boat insurance has become a bit of an issue over the last few years as the insurance industry in general struggles. I have not yet heard of a MacGregor being refused insurance but other boats are running into that problem. Group discounts seem to be a thing of the past. Some members with older boats have been required to get a marine survey done on their boat before it can be insured. You can find a list of surveyors and an old copy of policy wording under downloads/reference documents.
We insured Gemini through our agent who also handles house and car insurance. She found Premier Marine and we are insured for about $450 a year. You need to be a bit careful about the wording of the policy and what is covered. You should check out the MYCBC presentation on Boat Insurance
I believe you can still get insurance with your membership to the Canadian Power Squadron, so you might want to investigate that.
Welcome to the home of the Macgregor Yacht Club of British Columbia. We are a group of present and past Macgregor Yacht and Tattoo Yacht owners. Most of our members are in British Columbia, Canada, although we do have members from other places in Canada and the USA.
We organize on and off the water activities for owners of Macgregor and Tattoo boats; regattas, cruises, flotillas and our annual all member get together ‘MacRendezvous’. Members share tips, ideas, and hard-come-by knowledge about how to maximize the joy of owning these wonderfully affordable boats.
The basic, free sections of this website is open for all to enjoy.
You can register for free to have additional access to public forum where you can communicate with the club and can be included in emails that the club sends to members and registered users related to upcoming activities.
MYCBC membership provides you with full access to all areas of the website and the ability to participate in all activities. The modest, annual membership fee is $65 for the first year (which includes a club burgie and welcome package) and $35 per year thereafter. Membership in the club is recognized at marine stores and marinas for discounts on supplies and moorage. We also have negotiated discount insurance coverage for members. The saving you can expect will pay back your membership fee manyfold.
