Evacuation Coverage for Boaters

SkyMed Nautical has just upgraded our services and is designed specifically for the cruising community during a serious medical emergency while travelling. We look after You, Your family - including minor children and grand children, pets, your boat, remains in the event of death, and more! As a SkyMed member your costs and logistics are covered, and we bring you home to family, friends and Canadian health care. 

As a member of BCA since the 1980's, and offshore sailor with over 150,000 miles throughout the world, I have experienced and witnessed many serious medical emergencies of the cruising community. People operate at about 50% during a medical emergency and make bad decisions. Costs for evacuation are now upwards of $100,000.00 US UPFRONT, and most people don't have this kind of money instantly available when a crisis strikes. The first 24-48 hours of a medical emergency entitled the Golden Hours, determine if and how you live. Choosing your evacuation coverage is not a time to be indifferent, frugal (although our Plan costs less than $1.00/day), or uneducated. Many people rely on their VISA and other programs which have huge holes in the fine print - which we generally don't discover until it's too late.

As a result of my personal medical emergency in 2011 (hit by lightning 200 miles offshore), I have been working with SkyMed to develop this unique service for the cruising community. They listened. This Nautical Plan is one-of-a kind in the world, and only available to residents of Canada/US and Mexico. Our new prices are exceptional, and we now provide Global coverage 365 days a year. I strongly suggest that evacuation coverage be an essential component of your safety protocol. Please feel free to ask any evacuation questions and/or comparisons about your existing plan on this thread.
