Hey gang, first post here. I'm loving this group...the suggestions, tips.and general sense of community. As a new boat owner on a new boat (16 212ss) and coming from the PWC side, I needed to do a little research on protecting my new toy. OH, and for point of reference, I'm located in the Sarasota, west coast of Florida area. So, looked at 4 carriers including the 2 I already have for auro and motorcycle. By a decent amount, Progressive came back with the best value of cost and coverage right at $758/yr PIF. 2 weeks later I received a bill for $620 as a policy adjustment taking my premium up to $1378/yr. What I learned is for some reason the boat I'D originally shows a 190/192 in the system....then In the new/higher premium a discrepancy in toral HP (showing 380), 40 more than actual. After all said and done we dropped down a bit to $976/yr...still comparable to what I saw out there. So heads up, if you feel like you're paying more than you should...you just might be. See ya on the water!!!

When I got my boat in FL Progressive was the highest rate by far, about twice as high as others that I called, and all info was correct. I wound up with Geico, the coverage is actually Seaworthy.

i went with BoatUS who uses Geico as their underwriter. I pay $377/year for my 2016 AR192 with $500k liability ($390 deductible), $939,800 fuel spill coverage, $3,000 for the galvanized trailer ($50 deductible), $3,000 personal property. This is with their top tier Yacht policy which is a total cost replacement policy. Covers me for all US inland lakes and US/Canada coastal.

We have everything else with State Farm but their quote was like 3x as much. Crazy!

From my experience Progressive is dirt cheap on jet ski's, for boats they are way expensive. We pay $ 363.00 per year with State Farm, granted we have been insured with them for 25+years and have every discount they offer.

Wow!! I just got my insurance last week, and went with Progressive. $283.00 yr. I checked putting it on our MetLife policy that we have our cars and homeowners insurance through. I was quoted $5xx.00. I have Progressive on three of my motorcycles, so maybe that makes a difference.

Saved me a good bit over my USAA/Progressive rate. That was even going from my AR192 to the Moomba.

@Matt J your gonna make me have to shop around. I added mine to my other All State policies. $679 a year. I thought it sounded high. My old Sea Doo Challenger was only $225.

I just checked the skisafe link and they quoted me 150 a year but liability only may have to give them a call tomorrow. I know mine is going to be high with most people being that mine is older

Yes, prob a good idea.....My rate is with a recent speeding ticket I got in Georgia driving back from Siesta Key, Fl. If I remember correctly, that raised it by $30.00 or something close to that.

I hear ya brother...I've been hear 9 years and I still shake my head at the cray things I see...I think it was comedian patton oswalt who said something like Florida is the condom of the United states just catching all the disease and testosterone....we should lance it and let it spill out into the ocean. That said the good parts are a little slice of paradise and ripping through the water makes the rest tolerable.

So, just got a quote through boatus..$850.00. Clean driving record and impeccable credit.

Because Florida. Most major companies have pulled out of FL for boat coverage (State Farm and Allstate to name a few). I use Progressive and they are fine.
