    Default Yacht Insurance USA

    Hi
    We have our boat on the East coast of America.
    Because of heavy losses our insurance company (Topsail) has stopped USA insurance. Do forumites have any recommendations or advice. Can we use a USA company? Can we just get third party insurance.
    Thank you for any advice.

    I've heard this only applies to boats that require named storm coverage.

    I don't about 'new' clients, but having had comprehensive with Pantaenius from the Med to the Caribbean we changed to a Third Party Policy and have been on that ever since (USA/back to the Caribbean/Pacific).

    If you're looking at Policies written in the USA, be aware that they won't cover you if you want to visit Cuba, you'll need to buy local insurance in addition; the same applies to any health insurance policies.

    Hi BobnLesley
    Thx for you reply. We have been to Cuba so do not need that part. Can I get the name of your Third Party insurer? I am aware that USA insurers need to be certified to insure foreign flagged vessels.

    Obviously not clear, we're still with Pantaenius but with a TP rather than comprehensive policy

    Hi All
    An update
    Admiral Marine has insured me for the east coast of the USA, after a survey and rigging report.
