insurance

There was a request some time back about insurance. I crossed the
Atlantic without, but decided to get some when I heard tales of a
large sign in Madeira saying “It is illegal to be here without
insurance”. I got it thru Pantaenius, a UK company. pantaenius.com
is their website. They accepted my nearly 3 year old survey, they
have no minimum crew requirements, cover to 200 miles offshore,
covered not only the boat but all the gear aboard including tenders
and motors, and did not quibble over valuation which I placed
considerably higher than the survey value. I did not check with other
companies about rates, but the premium was $737 for agreed value of
$95,000 and $2,750,000 liability with a $300 deductible. Navigation
area from Bergen to La Rochelle. I do not think they cover the US
however.
