Insurance question

I have a general question about boat insurance (specifically the outboard motor).

I am shopping around for a new policy and currently have a 2003 Yammy F115AETL on the back of the boat, which is insured for 4500. Most insurers seem happy with this price but state that I'd only get market value for it should it be damaged/stolen (current book price is around 2900 apparently), and they won't allow me to go much more than 4500 on it due to it being 11 years old.

Bearing in mind a direct replacement doesn't come up for sale second hand very often (I've been looking around for this very reason), and a new one is at least 9500, what would happen in the event of the engine being stolen? I'd be looking to sell the boat as bare bones as I couldn't afford the shortfall of 6k+ to get a replacement. Is it just a case of hoping it never happens??

From reading my policy they take price new, then deduct 10% per annum upto a maximum of 70%.

Yeah, that's how they get the 2900 book price for mine after talking to them.

I'd be hard pushed to find a replacement for 2900 though, should it disappear off the back end for any reason!

Insurance question

Without wanting to upset you further, here's a screenshot of what the insurance company have as a value on your engine. Its a guide supplied to us by the loss adjuster's

The first figure is list price (ex vat), the 2nd is estimated retail and the last is trade in. According to the loss adjuster they look to allow You to get back something in between the last 2 figures.

This is last years figures, as we haven't yet got the 2014 one.

Strewth! I'd best not lose it then or I'll have a pretty expensive rowing RIB when I can't afford a replacement engine!

I occasionally have to value engines that have become uneconomic to repair for insurers - typically if they have been submerged.

I'll use a combination of:
Threestokes guide
What's for sale on boatsandoutboards
What's for sale on eBay
Ebay completed auction prices.

I'll also ask if the customer has called some dealers to see what is available.

Insurers generally are happy to pay the fair market price in my experience.

The main problem is with an older engine where there is very little availability. What's my 2001 800hrs opti 150 worth?

That's useful, and sounds pretty fair. I'd imagine most valuers would "probably" do similar. I'm just surprised that I couldn't even pay extra to "up" the cover to help narrow the gap between what I'd get and what I'd need to fork out, should the worst happen.

I would like to do the same, pay a higher premium to have a like for like, or an agreed value.

I could be wrong but I believe an agreed value is based upon what you paid for the engine (or what it was worth at the time of taking out the policy). So for mine being 11 years old (despite being barely broken in at 230 hours!!) I would be able to quote it at 4500 (or less based upon the guide posted above) and get that back with an agreed value, but it would still leave me short on money to replace it as the cheapest on B&O at the moment is 9995.
