Houseboat Insurance - Where to get a house boat insured?
Where to get Houseboat Insurance and be Insured.
I'm looking for houseboat insurance, and wondering where to go to get my house boat insured? I'm trying to get houseboat insurance on my 1970 Gibson houseboat.
Everyone that will insure the houseboat, they want an "out of water" survey. I can not afford this, and the one year premium together.
Is there an insurance company that you know of, that will write me just a liability policy for the marina.
I own the houseboat, is free and clear, and it's in great shape. I hope you can help me. Billy.Reply - Answer
Well Billy, congratulations on your Gibson houseboat, and sorry to hear about your insurance problems. I'm sure that we'll find a solution.
Speaking of Gibson's, one of my neighbors had one, and the Gibson is a great house boat.
Now let's look at the situation of getting your houseboat insured. Do you happen to presently have a survey? If you do, let's use that one to get the boat insured. If not, let's first look at some possibilities.
I don't have a biased opinion and want to stay neutral, however I can understand the insurance companies hesitation, especially when we look at the age of the houseboat.
There are some 38 year old boats that are in excellent condition, and there are some that have been totally neglected. Glad to hear that yours is in great shape.
Another alternative, if you just bought the houseboat, possibly you could go back to the previous owner's insurance company, and just have the policy holders name changed to yours.
