Not every boat insurance policy is the same, and they provide varying degrees of coverage. That is where having a knowledgeable independent agent comes in. Talk to your agent about the types of coverage that are important to you and ask them to explain all the optional coverage you should consider.
There are a lot of risks out there just waiting to damage your boat. Lots of them are covered but of course like all insurance, not everything. Most insurance will cover the hull of your boat, motor, batteries, fuel tanks, anchor, safety equipment, navigational equipment, and more. Be sure to read your policy, so you know what is covered and what is excluded.
Your boat is covered if it is stolen in the water. Outside the water is more complicated. A lot depends on exactly where it is when it is stolen. Equipment in your boat may not be covered, read your policy to see what it covers.
This is one of the most important types of coverage. If you have an at-fault boat accident, you need to have protection for the damage you cause to both people and property.
