Our Boat Insurance Agency

Anchored on the shore of beautiful West Grand Traverse Bay, in an office with expansive views of a busy marina and the pristine waters that support it, we at Global Marine Insurance Agency can’t imagine a life without boats and boating. Many of us grew up spending more of our summers on the water than off: sailing, fishing, waterskiing, cruising, just drifting with the current, or all of the aforementioned and more. Boating is a large part of who we are, so we’re proud to be able to serve the boating community and to play a role in protecting fellow members and their investments.

Global Marine Insurance Agency is privately owned, and solely dedicated to providing insurance coverage to members of the boating community. We’re proud of the reputation we’ve earned within the industry, and of the superior customer service we provide to our clients, a level of service that doesn’t ebb once we’ve sold you a policy. From stem to stern, from issuing the policy to handling claims, we’re there with you, helping you leave your cares on land as you head toward open waters.

From mega yacht insurance to all types of boat insurance, we’re committed to finding you the coverage you need at the best possible price. We’re licensed in the 48 contiguous United States, and use surplus carriers that allow us to write certain vessels outside the U.S. Our yacht and boat insurance specialists work very closely with our insurance companies, all of which are “A-” rated or better.
