You betcha, baby!
Be sure to check SkiSafe. They blew my first quote out of the water.

So I've been shopping for insurance on the new X55. Thought I'd share what I've found so far. We have our current Crownline E4 with Boater's Insurance. I haven't yet asked them for an updated quote.

Here's the quotes I have, most expensive to least expensive. All are for approximately the same coverage, with a few noted exceptions. All are agreed value.

1. Boat US. Most expensive by far, 80% higher than the lowest quote. No layup period.

2. Traveler's. This is my where my car coverage is, so thought I'd try a bundle. No layup period. 33% higher than the lowest quote. No layup period.

3. Global Marine (underwritten by ACE). Only a few bucks more than Ski Safe and higher coverage.

4. Ski Safe. Least expensive, by just a few bucks, but they didn't use the liability limit I entered. it's lower. and has a 5 month layup period.

I still need to get a quote from my current carrier, but so far Global Marine is best from a cost perspective. I'll probably revise the Ski Safe quote too.

Interesting to say the least. They were just a few dollars apart in my quotes and I switched from skisafe to BoatUS to save a few bucks and have no layup.

Shocks me. I heard that the hurricane that hit the east coast last fall affected rates. But it didn't affect mine AFAIK. I just insured the '97 190 for around $400 which was reasonable. The X14 was around $700 IIRC.
