How often does the rigging need to be replaced?
The general rule of thumb in the boating industry is every 7 to 10 years, depending on how often your boat is used and other factors, Insurance providers may vary which is why it is always important to check with your insurance provider.
With Bluewater cruising, some insurers require the rigging to be renewed every 7 years.
How do the Cyclone Zones work?
In Australia, the cyclone season comes into affect as of the 1st of November until the 30th of April.
Each insurance company have their own cyclone zone areas. Please read your PDS or talk to Lisa to direct your question.
Do I need a Survey for boat insurance?
It is always a good idea to have an independent pre-purchase survey done by a certified surveyor. A survey helps you to understand your vessel better and to identify if there are any unseaworthy issues that need to be rectified before you make the purchase. Insurance companies may require an out of water survey of your vessel if it is aged over 7 - 10 years old.
As insurance providers vary it is important to check with your insurance provider.
