Why do you need boat insurance?
A boat insurance policy helps protect you and your boat. If you don't have a separate boat or personal watercraft insurance policy, you're probably underinsured. Most homeowners policies have:
- Size restrictions
- Limitations on horsepower
- Limits on damage coverage
Check out our "boating insurance explained" video and article here for more reasons why boat insurance is a smart idea.
Boat policies can provide coverage for:
- Damage to your boat including hull, sails, equipment, and more.
- New boat replacement
- Fuel spill liability
- Liability to pay for damages and injuries you cause if you hit another boat, person, dock
- Medical coverage for you and persons in your boat.
- Wreckage removal
What types of watercraft are covered by boat insurance?
All boats aren't the same. You need to customize your boat insurance to meet your needs and provide your watercraft with the proper coverage. Here is a list of the most common types of watercrafts.
- Pontoon boats are one of the most popular inland water boats. They are a flattish boat that relies on floats to remain buoyant. Their wide and spacious area is great for many passengers to enjoy the ride.
- Personal watercraft (PWC) are powered by a water jet pump and the rider generally sits, stands, or kneels on it. There are many types of PWCs which include WaveRunners, Sea-Doos and more.
- Fishing and bass boats are designed and equipped for fishing. Most are powered by an outboard motor and are equipped with power poles, trolling motors, etc.
- Powerboats are the most popular type of boat used for cruising, watersports, and so much more.
- Sailboats are propelled partly or entirely by sails.
If you don't see your watercraft listed and are looking for more information on different types of boats and insurance for boats, check out our boat FAQ page.
