We toured the likes of the Wilbur Yachts 42 sportfish, CABO Yachts new enclosed Express and Hinckley’s T38R Convertible (no really, this boat has a drop top – Pictured).
The price range of the items for sale at the show started around $20 and ranged to $4,000,000. The $20 being the pair of sunglasses I bought to the 4 million being the 55 Hinckley I unfortunately didn’t come home with.
In the vendor area, parts from bow thrusters to components for the head were for sale. The parts were extremely specialized and unique to the different boats – this is where my insurance brain kicked in – thinking about how an inexperienced agent may not be able to identify the many components of the engine, electronics and overall mechanics of the vessel, as well as numerous items listed on the survey. Another aspect unique to a marine insurance specialist would be the understanding of fishing equipment that may only be on the boat during overnight trips to the canyons, as well as other personal effects.
