Great Loop Insurance

The Great Loop is a 6,000 mile journey through waterways along much of the Eastern USA and a bit of Canada, primarily on protected inland waters. It attracts around 150 boats each year, with some completing the entire loop over a couple of years while others choose to do portions of the trip. The journey requires careful planning, navigation, and preparation, and there is valuable information available online about boat choices, routes, limitations, weather concerns, and interesting towns to visit. Novamar Insurance has seen an increase in clients interested in insuring their boats for the Great Loop. To get insurance coverage, boat owners need to provide a detailed boating resume, a rough 12-month itinerary, caretaking plans, and meet certain risk criteria set by insurers. Insurance claims for boats on the Loop are often related to striking submerged objects or accidents while unattended. Overall, a flexible attitude, preparedness, and proper maintenance are crucial for a successful and memorable Great Loop experience. For yacht insurance inquiries, interested individuals can contact Keith Sargis, Novamar's Mid-Atlantic regional manager.

We would like to remind you that you are required to have a boating license while you are navigating your boat in Mexican waters. Every boat owner, operator, and captain at the helm of a vessel must have a valid boating license that states you are qualified to operate the vessel.

Yacht Policy Warranties and Why They Matter

Yacht owners generally agree that speaking with knowledgeable, helpful & experienced marine agents benefits their understanding of what is covered and what is not covered in a yacht insurance policy when deciding where to spend their premium dollars. In today’s market, the handful of yacht insurance companies still insuring yachts are focused on profitability more than ever.
