The Gowrie Group was founded in 1974 by longtime Museum member and racing sailor Carter Gowrie. Over the past four decades, Gowrie’s reputation for excellence in insurance solutions and customer service has led them to become one of the top privately held insurance agencies in New England, and the largest marine insurance company in the United States. Under Carter’s leadership Gowrie Group developed a specialty insurance program called “The Burgee Program” designed specifically to protect yacht clubs and community sailing organizations. Gowrie’s deep roots in sailing and yachting along with their commitment to service and quality make them natural partners with Mystic Seaport.
“The vision the Seaport had to undertake a complete restoration of the Charles W. Morgan and actually go sailing underscores how important Mystic Seaport is to the history of the sea. Our involvement in the risk planning and insurance for the Morgan project and the Museum is a great sense of pride for Gowrie Group,” said Carter Gowrie, CEO.
Gowrie’s support in the months ahead will help us to sustain the high-quality programs that have become a hallmark of Mystic Seaport.
“Gowrie has excelled in meeting the Museum’s insurance needs, and since day one their professional team has been a pleasure to work with,” said Mystic Seaport President Steve White .
Gowrie Group’s portfolio of offerings includes commercial, home/auto, boat/yacht, and equine insurance, as well as employee benefits and safety services.
