Insurance for penned/dry docked boat in the north west

 Looking for advice on an insurance company or a broker.

I have recently purchased a 32ft fishing boat and I'm struggling to find someone to insure it, it's currently located in carnarvon and this is where it will sit on stands for the next few months for a new fitout untill I put it in the water when a penn becomes available in exmouth or a mooring in dampier but every insurance company I have spoken to so far have said due to the location they won't Insure it,

surely someone out there will insure it otherwise I can't put it in the penn when it's available.

Give Nigel Jordan a call  in Carnarvon. He insured my Sharkcat whilst it was there. Good pricing too.

Pantaenius will insure for the north west, although they exclude named storms i.e. cyclones.  I've heard Elders also will do it.

It's getting harder to find anyone who will insure above the 26th parallel.

 Cheers for the info 

I have tried coast they said no, I will give panteanius and elders a call tomorrow morning see how I go with them, 

and will also give safeguard a call the last broker I called said I'm better off ringing around myself as most insurance companies prefer to deal direct with the client for pleasure crafts must be no money in it for the broker.
