But how would I get an agreed value of 10k for a replacement engine when the actual engine on the boat is only worth 4.5k max? Is that possible? Obviously I'd have to pay more if it even is.

It would be silly not too then. That's the way I'll go next year thanks

As long as the agreed value is reasonable then it is what it is.

Yes the depreciated value of the boat is 4.5K but if its going to cost you 10k to replace it because the only way to actually replace it is to buy new then get an agreed value policy for 10K.

If replacing it will cost 10K you probably shouldn't attempt to get an agreed value policy of 25K and expect to profit by 15K after buying a new one. That looks a lot like fraud.

If I could get an agreed value of 25k it might go missing a couple of times a year!

But seriously I'm just looking to receive a realistic amount back to be able to replace with a similar/same engine should the worst happen.

Will have a few chats with various insurers over the next couple of weeks.

Thanks for all the replies!

With classic car 'agreed value' insurance I have to (when asked) re submit upto date photographs of the engine bay and rest of car for it the value be 'agreed' again.

Seems odd that you could get an agreed value on your boat and engine, 'use it and abuse it' then 'lose it' and get paid out

It must be open to abuse .

Just my thoughts

Thing is, you're not actually insuring the boat. What you're doing is buying "X" amount of cover for a fixed fee. The actual value of the boat is irrelevant, the premium is based on the amount of cover, not the value of the boat.

Very true but given that insurers are looking for excuses not to pay out and/or fraud its best not to be unreasonable with the replacement costs. Accurate and even rounded up is probably fine but trying to get a 50m yacht as "replacement" for your 4m SIB is not going to be viewed favorably if the claim is disputed (and it probably would be).

I'm not looking to defraud anyone, I'm too honest for my own good most of the time! I just want to make sure I'd be able to afford a replacement engine.

So are there any recommendations for companies who do agreed value on engines? Mercia Marine has been mentioned but others are welcome.

I dont think you can insure and expect to get a pay out for more than the boat is worth. If you over insure and claim you will not get the inflated value you will get what the loss adjuster values your boat at.

If you feel the insurers might under value your bat get a surveyor to value it, and send the valuation in when you negotiate your policy.
