What is Boat Insurance?

Boat insurance (including PWC’s) is a specialized insurance policy designed to protect your watercraft from potential risks and liabilities while out on the water. It provides coverage for various perils, including damage to your boat, personal injury, property damage, and liability claims.

Boat Insurance

Boat insurance is essential for several reasons:

  1. Financial Protection: Boats are valuable assets that require significant financial investment. Boat insurance provides financial protection to cover repair or replacement costs in the event of damage, theft, or loss.

  2. Liability Coverage: Accidents can happen on the water, leading to injuries or property damage to others. Boat insurance includes liability coverage to protect you from potential lawsuits and financial liabilities arising from such incidents.

  3. Legal Requirement: Depending on your province or country of residence, boat insurance may be required by law. Even if it’s not mandatory, having insurance ensures compliance with marina or lending institution requirements and protects your investment in your watercraft.

At Charles E. Boyd Limited Brokerage, we offer a comprehensive range of boat insurance coverage options to meet the diverse needs of boat owners. Here are some common types of coverage:

  1. Physical Damage Coverage: Protects your boat against damage or loss caused by covered perils, including collisions, fire, theft, vandalism, and severe weather.

  2. Liability Coverage: Provides financial protection against bodily injury and property damage claims resulting from accidents for which you are found liable while operating your boat.

  3. Medical Payments Coverage: Covers medical expenses for you, your passengers, and others injured on your boat, regardless of fault.

  4. Uninsured/Underinsured Boater Coverage: Protects you in the event of an accident with another boater who doesn’t have sufficient insurance coverage or is uninsured.

  5. Personal Effects Coverage: Provides coverage for personal belongings and equipment stored on your boat, such as fishing gear, navigation devices, and water sports equipment.
