How Does Boat Insurance Work?
Boat insurance is much like other types of insurance in that it can help provide financial protection in the event of damage, theft or liability claims involving your watercraft.
When you purchase boat insurance, you receive a policy outlining the coverage provided, including limits and deductibles. In case of an incident covered by your policy, such as an accident or theft, you can file a claim with your insurance provider.
What Does Boat Insurance Cover?
Boat insurance policies typically offer a range of coverage options tailored to the unique risks associated with owning and operating a watercraft and may include the following:
- Physical damage coverage may help repair or replace your boat if accidents, storms, fire, theft or vandalism damage it, depending on your policy and selected coverages. This type of coverage may help protect the hull and the boat’s equipment, such as engines, electronics and furniture.
- Liability coverage may help cover accident-related third-party property damage or injury claims up to the policy’s limits.
- Uninsured/underinsured watercraft coverage may help provide financial protection if you are involved in an accident with another boater who has no insurance or insufficient coverage to fully compensate for the damages.
- Wreckage removal may help cover the costs of salvaging, removing, or disposing of the wreckage if your boat sinks or is severely damaged.
- Towing and assistance may help provide reimbursement for emergency towing and service if your boat becomes disabled while on the water.
Depending on your needs and vessel, your agent may recommend additional policies and endorsements to help cover personal effects, towing trailers and sporting equipment.
What Boat Insurance Do I Need?
Determining the boat insurance coverage you need depends on several factors, including the type and value of your watercraft, whether your lienholder requires certain coverages, how and where you use your boat, and local regulations. Your agent can help determine which coverages and limits are appropriate for your situation.
