Insuring your Watercraft
Whether you’re in the market for a new watercraft, or you already own a boat and you’re looking to get it insured for use this summer, we thought some information on watercraft insurance would be helpful.
Summer is just around the corner and soon the lakes will be filled with swimmers and boaters!

Most watercraft insurance policies are relatively inexpensive (minimum premiums starting as low as $135/year) and provide a range of coverage:
In addition, one of our Insurance Company partners also offers the following features and benefits:
Most watercraft insurance policies will include a layup warranty (typically from December 1st – March 31st) where the vessel is expected to be laid up for winter.
The policy also includes navigational limits which apply to where the vessel may be used. Extended navigational limits can be tailored to suit the needs of the insured, including providing coverage for Florida, the Caribbean and Mexico.
Depending on the age of the watercraft, a Marine Survey (which is a full appraisal) may be required.
