boat insurance in Caribbean

Does anyone know of any insurance companies, foreign or domestic, that insurers boats in the Caribbean?

Talk to a good marine insurance broker. Al Golden at IMIS Corp and Jack Martin at Jack Martin Associates are two good ones.

Is the vessel a US flagged vessel, or foreign registered? Will the boat stay in the islands, or just travel there?

"Foreign flagged", I am interpreting that as non-US/Canadian as opposed to a US flagged boat in Antigua.

You may find US based insurance more expensive than non-US based polices. As a non-North American boat you will qualify for coverage from Pantaenius Europe (UK?). This is different from Pantaenius America.

You might also want to consider United Insurance out of Barbados - Anjo Insurance in Antigua is an agent (agents on most islands).

You may find some resistance to the Caribbean agents covering a trawler as there are so few trawlers here that the companies are cautious.

There are of course benefits in having a US based insurance company. You can make that decision.
