- 26' Webber Cove lobster boat.
It seems to me that no one wants to insure commercial fishing boats. They have no problems insuring charter boats, but the second that you tell them that you are crabbing or lobstering, or fin-fishing they tell me that they do not sell a product that will fit my needs. I have always just fished with out insurance because my last boat was a piece of crap. But now that I have a newer boat that I have a good amount of money invested in, I need to get insurance to protect my asset. Can any of you guys please refer me to some carriers that will insure me? This whole thing is really pissing me off. These companies advertise commercial boat insurance, but they will not insure a small fishing boat. I know that every lobsterman in maine with a 30' $100,000 + boat has insurance so who is insuring them.I have had zero luck with google. Someone help me out here. I'm getting ready to put her in but cant do it until I have her insured. Any leads will be appreciated.
