Hagerty Insurance started out as a general insurance agency in Traverse City. Their owners, Frank and Louise Hagerty, discovered that it was nearly impossible to find coverage for classic boats and automobiles. The Hagerty’s saw a niche to be filled and in 1983, they combined their insurance expertise with their love for wooden boats and antique cars and formed Hagerty Classic Marine and Auto Insurance. Their vision has been unwavering for more than 20 years: work to preserve and protect these unique classics, and support the hobbyists who enjoy them.
