In 1983 Frank and Louise Hagerty had a valuable collection of collector wooden boats but realized that the appropriate insurance coverage for their watercraft didn't exist. Instead of continuing a fruitless search, the Hagertys decided to launch a brand new agreed value policy for collector boats. In 1991 Hagerty unveiled a similar insurance product for collector cars and in just 25 years have become the leading provider of classic car and boat insurance in the world. Focusing only on classic cars and boats allows Hagerty to devote its full attention to the special needs of collector car and boat owners. Petruzelo Insurance is proud to work with Hagerty to offer residents in Connecticut affordable classic and antique car insurance.
