Default High Speed Low Value Boat

I just tripped across this forum while wandering on THT. I am probably 6 months out from needing it (hull has new transom, needs new core) but I will be looking for insurance on my 1985 Eliminator Daytona 21. It will likely have a Mercury 300 XS and run in the 90's. I had coverage with Markel but they pulled out of Florida (I live in SE Florida). I have to have liability, would like to have hull insurance but not a deal breaker. Do you have any markets that might be able to serve me, or can you direct me to somebody who might?

Hi Patrick

Thank you for contacting us regarding boat insurance for the Daytona Eliminator. The only carrier we have that would consider insuring this vessel would be Markel American due to it's speed. They have not actually pulled out of insuring boats in Florida but they do not write very many high performance class vessels in South Florida due to the theft issues there. However, they should be able to offer us a quote for liability only if you have good experience with vessels of this speed.

If you interested in a boat insurance quote for liability only, please contact us at 800-879-2248 and ask to speak with one of our agents who can obtain the information required to do so.

Thank you again and I hope you had a nice holiday weekend!
