Hull Insurance cost for a Long EZ

Recommended Posts

I was quoted $1,700 for Hull insurance on my Long EZ. This is for $38,00 in Hull insurance only.  Is this in the ball park of what other EZs are being insured for?

I don't know but my liability is $577 through Falcon Ins.  Do you really need hull?  In 45 years I have never had collision on my cars or hull on my airplanes and not regretted it . . .so far.    :-)  

 

If your liability-only was $700/year, then in 10 years you'd pay around $ 16,000 for the extra hull, factoring in 5% inflation.  You could make a lot of repairs for $16K or put the $16K you saved towards another EZ.

 

I suppose if you are getting a loan for the EZ, you have to have it.

Thanks Kent for your reply.

 

My liability insurance quote is close to yours using the same supplier.  My only concern about hull insurance is I live in Indiana where we have some really bad weather (Tornados) and a friend of mine went to Sun n Fun a few years ago and his RV6 was destroyed when another plane flipped on top of his due to bad weather.  This has made me a little nervous about having it un-insured but at this time I think $1,700 a year is excessively expensive.

 

Thanks again for your reply.

Jerry
