Great Loop Insurance

The Great Loop is a 6,000 mile journey through waterways along much of the Eastern USA and a bit of Canada, primarily on protected inland waters. It attracts around 150 boats each year, with some completing the entire loop over a couple of years while others choose to do portions of the trip. The journey requires careful planning, navigation, and preparation, and there is valuable information available online about boat choices, routes, limitations, weather concerns, and interesting towns to visit. Novamar Insurance has seen an increase in clients interested in insuring their boats for the Great Loop. To get insurance coverage, boat owners need to provide a detailed boating resume, a rough 12-month itinerary, caretaking plans, and meet certain risk criteria set by insurers. Insurance claims for boats on the Loop are often related to striking submerged objects or accidents while unattended. Overall, a flexible attitude, preparedness, and proper maintenance are crucial for a successful and memorable Great Loop experience. For yacht insurance inquiries, interested individuals can contact Keith Sargis, Novamar's Mid-Atlantic regional manager.
