San Diego, CA, 06/20/2012 – With summer officially starting today and the boating season already underway, the Marine Program at Arrowhead General Insurance Agency, Inc. is pleased to offer its producers a team of boating insurance experts who are licensed to write in all 50 U.S. states for recreational and commercial marine risks with multiple “A” rated carriers.
The program’s target markets include pleasure boats and yachts 16 feet and up, high performance boats with top speeds up to 130 mph, mega-yachts, marinas, boat dealers, boat manufacturers and marine artisans and contractors.
“One of the key differentiators for our program is that the independent agents and brokers working with us can get online real-time quote indications – typically in five minutes,” said Marty Reichman, Arrowhead’s national marine product manager.
Online quote indications for Arrowhead’s watercraft risks are submitted via ArrowheadExchange.com, Arrowhead’s secure website where producers can also manage policies, view pending cancellations, review training videos, read product blogs and download marketing resources.
“The online portal is straight forward and easy to use,” said Clayton Hubbell, an agent at American Marine Insurance Services whose focus is writing privately owned pleasure boats nationwide. “The team at Arrowhead is very efficient and can usually turn around a quote in a few hours,” Hubbell said.
“With unlimited hull and P&I capacity and worldwide navigation capacity, we can write just about any type of marine risk you submit to us for a quote. Plus we write in Mexico, including fulltime Mexico, Florida and the Gulf,” said Reichman. “When I’m talking to our agencies and brokers, I like to let them know that Arrowhead is a true GA with absolutely no marine retail division.”
“Another plus to the way we have set up this program is how fast it is for producers to access the products,” said Son Nguyen, senior vice president of Arrowhead’s Marine Program. “Every producer appointed with Arrowhead already has instant access to the products and can submit quotes once they’re logged into Arrowhead Exchange. And we’ve made it just as easy for first-time agents who want to submit business to us. They just need to submit a quote request to be considered.”
