We’re a family-owned business that has been selling insurance for five decades.
In 1983, Frank and Louise Hagerty realized that appropriate insurance coverage for their collector wooden boats didn’t exist, so they launched a revolutionary Agreed Value policy for collector boats. Within a few years, half of the vintage boat owners in the country were Hagerty clients.
In 1991, we created a similar product for collector cars.
And in 1995 two of Frank and Louise’s three children, Kim and McKeel, came home to run the family business. Together they’ve overseen the company’s tremendous growth, which has been supported by a great product, exceptional client service, cutting-edge technology, creative marketing and the best-qualified employees in the industry. In 25 years, Hagerty has grown from a small agency headquartered in the Hagerty family basement to the leading provider of collector car and boat insurance in the world!
We provide insurance for antiques, classics, muscle cars, street rods and customs, sports cars, exotics, high-quality replicas, special-interest vehicles and antique motorcycle collections.
We also provide insurance for most types of wooden or fiberglass boats that are maintained in good to very good condition. Our program is designed for runabouts, utilities, launches (including steam), skiffs, mono-hulled sailboats, most cruisers and trawlers, and even canoes. High-quality fiberglass boats 12 years or older, home-built or kit wooden boats, and excellent reproductions of classic wooden boat designs are also eligible.
