Allen Insurance and Financial has been named the preferred insurance agency of the American Schooner Association. Chris Richmond of the agency’s Camden office is the lead marine insurance specialist working with association members.
“We’re pleased to be working with Chris and his colleagues at Allen Insurance and Financial,” said Paul Brabazon, American Schooner Association Commodore. “They know the risks faced by the people and vessels in our industry. It takes someone who knows both insurance and boats to really take care of our insurance needs.”
The ASA is the second historic sail organization that has endorsed Allen Insurance and Financial. The agency has been the preferred insurance provider of Tall Ships America since 2007.
Allen Insurance and Financial plans to assemble a group of insurance company risk management experts to work with ASA members individually and as a group at ASA conferences.
In addition, Allen Insurance and Financial will offer the following insurance products to ASA members as an ASA officially endorsed insurance agency:
• Hull, P&I and related vessel insurance for U.S. flagged member vessels and members who qualify.
• General business insurance for land-based operations of ASA members.
The American Schooner Association, founded in 1972 and based in Mystic, Conn., fosters, promotes and encourages the enjoyment, traditions, and preservation of schooners by supporting individuals and organizations that are in sympathy with our object, by maintaining a record of these vessels past and present, and by coordinating a program of racing and cruising.
