The importance of boat insurance

All boat owners value their boats, but not everyone understands how important it is to have boat insurance. With a boat, just like with a car or a home, accidents can happen. That is why it is so important to make sure that you have the proper amount of insurance coverage to prevent your valuable investment in case of a mishap. Boat insurance can help protect everyone and everything including you, other boaters, your boat, and your equipment.

What your boat insurance covers

Before taking your boat out on the water, it is important for you to know what your boat insurance does and does not cover. Your boat insurance may cover things such as:

  • Comprehensive
  • Property damage
  • Collision
  • Capsizing/stranding
  • Theft
  • Storms
  • Fire/explosion
  • Sinking

Your boat insurance should also offer two types of liability insurance:

  • Medical payments - covers medical expenses that are acquired during an accident involving your boat, such as hospital bills, ambulance charges, and medical bills.
  • Personal liability - covers any costs that you would have to pay to an injured party in the event of an accident involving your boat, such as bodily injury expenses, property damages, and legal defense costs.
