I would add that I think that the bigger issues for me getting insurance was, cruising in a different country from registration, (ie: half way around the planet from the registration country, especially as SA is the supposedly the most dangerous and challenging of waters, of which i have no experience..), and the terms World cruising / blue water crossing.
I never had a problem insuring my thai registered tiki 30 for local cruising in thailand, and the policy was very reasonable.
Maybe you should try to get "local" coverage and then expand the policy once you have had it for a while and as you travel further and further afield, rather than going down the world cruise route straight away....... I am going to try this but i have already been informed by the broker that it is possible to obtain world coverage.. albeit at a higher price. I am going to be specifying what countries i need cover for by a year by year basis rather than going for the total world cover when blatantly i am not going to be round the world within a year.
Anyway good luck
I had met Susan Ratrie, who is a marine insurance broker, while she was doing the bottom of their Maine Cat 41 at Pleasure Cove. She has a website, search for Tabby Cat or tabbycatus, and also she has Skype. She conducts business on board. I need to upgrade my insurance later this year and will contact her first.
