If you were in an accident, report it immediately to your Insurance Provider: Payments and Claims
Why should you purchase Boat Insurance?
Piloting a boat is a great responsibility. Having proper insurance to protect you and your passengers is essential.
Boat Insurance can protect you by providing financial relief from hull repair costs, damaged equipment, medical expenses, and more.
Let's take a closer look at coverages.
Liability Coverage covers hull repair costs, medical expenses, or general property damage of the other party if you caused an accident.
Comprehensive Coverage covers the repair costs of your boat if it was damaged by anything other than a collision. This can include theft, vandalism, the environment, etc.
Collision Coverage covers the repair costs of your boat after it is damaged in a collision.
Uninsured/Underinsured Boater Coverage covers you for medical or boat repair expenses if the other party was at fault and doesn’t have enough insurance.
Equipment on your boat such as anchors, safety gear, or navigation equipment can be covered.
Belongings that aren’t directly attached to your boat or used for boating such as clothing, watches, phones, etc… can be insured with an endorsement.
Towing Coverage offers towing services to a nearby dock if you find yourself stranded.
If you own a boat trailer that you’d like to insure, it can be added to your policy for a minimal amount.
Agreed Value Coverage
You and your Insurance Provider will decide on an Agreed Value of your boat. This means that if your boat has sunk or was completely destroyed, you will receive the full Agreed Value without any deductions or depreciation.
Are your Liability limits high enough?
Boats and yachts are high powered machines with a lot of weight behind them. A collision in the water can spell disaster for those on board. Make sure you have enough Liability Coverage to cover medical expenses and protect your hard earned money.
Haven Insurance recommends at least $50,000 in Liability Coverage per person, $100,000 in Liability Coverage per accident, and $50,000 for Property Damages.
What kind of deductibles should you pay?
A deductible is the amount paid to your Insurance Provider to access your coverage.
Generally, higher deductibles will lower your monthly payments, and lower deductibles will raise your monthly payments.
