When purchasing a policy for your boat, yacht or marine insurance needs, you have a few options from which to choose. The choices are generally:
Homeowners Insurance Agent / General Agent – This is your corner store agency that writes your home, auto, health, and life insurance.
Direct Writers – These are the insurance companies (not agencies) who write their product direct to consumers. Progressive, Liberty Mutual, & Geico Auto Insurance are examples. The people you are getting a quote from work for the insurance company.
