Default insurance quote for a 35' Cigarette?

Anybody have any idea how much to insure (from Boston) a 35' Cafe Racer with fourteen hundred horsepower? I realize these aren't typically used to go after fluke in Boston Harbor but my son is looking at one and I wonder if the cost of insurance is going to be big time outrageous.

He could call Boat US to get a quick quote over the phone for a idea.

Agree with Eheath. Try Boat US or NBOA. Alot of insurance companies will not want to insure a go fast boat.-Cooker

I've had similar boats (my last was a 38 Formula also with 1,400hp). I managed to get State Farm to write mine but apparently that was unusual. Boat US won't write it (and I'm been a Boat US member for 20 years).

Look for advertisers on Offshoreonly.com or Boatfreaks.org. I'm a regular on both and those sites cater to this type of boat.....An annual rate of $1,000 will be unlikely, expect to pay more, especially if he's young.

Markel Marine has a designated program for speed boats. Pricing can be steep but it's based on operator experience, hull value and previous loss history. We have access to the program if you would like some more information.

Thanks for the info. He is 32 years old with very little loss history.

We will keep all of this in mind if he ends up purchasing this boat.

It's a straight bottom and will get around 1.0-1.2 mpg at about 50 (my 38 had similar motors but a stepped hull. I managed 1.5 mpg at 60 GPS with a top speed of 90

I had several of these types of boats and a good buddy had a 35 Cafe Racer with 650/side.

What year is it and what drives? If they are Bravos I hope it doesn't really have 700hp each. And what about the engines? Looks like blower scoops. Probably 502's with a small wieland on them (have any info?)


........and is he prepared to tow that rig?

He is a buddy of mine i think it has #3 bravo's speedmaster outdrives, only 125hrs. It seems like a pretty good deal. The previous owner has put alot of work into it.

#3 speedmasters are not bravos but decent drives for the power. 3A's would be better but 3's are likely on that age boat. They haven't been made for awhile but parts should still be floating around out there for them. (or you can upgrade to Konrads if they blow up)
