Boat insurance most likely is not required by your state (excluding residents of Arkansas and Utah). As a result, it’s no surprise some percentage of boaters take a leap of faith and go unprotected on the water. As it turns out, there are a ton of benefits when it comes to boat and PWC insurance. We’re here to do all the homework on this topic, covering the most common questions about boat insurance and why it is so important.
WHAT IS BOAT INSURANCE?
Boat insurance is like most other personal insurance. It’ll cover you for things like fire, theft, damage, medical payments, towing and roadside assistance, and more. As an example, if your boat bumps into another at the dock or your propeller sustains damage on an outing, your policy can respond to these losses. Does this sound better than paying entirely out-of-pocket? Yeah, we think so too.
Here is a list of perils your boat insurance policy can cover:
- Towing and Roadside Assistance
- Bodily Injury & Property Damage Liability
- Medical Payments
- Personal Property & Equipment
- Hurricane Haul-out
- Fuel Spills
Boat insurance can also include liability coverage, agreed value, cost of defense, and disappearing deductibles.
HOW MUCH IS BOAT INSURANCE?
There are several factors that contribute to the overall cost of your boat insurance policy. Your coverage, deductibles, and the discounts you qualify for will help determine your premium. Other factors that affect the price include the value of the craft, driving records, prior claims, and seasonal use. To get your FREE quote, click here. For more on boat insurance costs, click here.
Many boat insurance companies will run a credit report that may significantly increase your premium based on your score. SkiSafe does not increase your premium based on a credit report and will not run one. For more information on credit scoring and boat insurance, click here.
