10 May Do I have the Proper Boat Insurance?
When it comes to insuring your boat, many people think that they can tact it onto of their home or auto insurance. This is not the case. Different boat insurance policies are created for different types of watercraft’s. There are many factors that go into a boat insurance policy, age of boat, speed/horsepower, where will it operate, value, are just to name a few. How you plan to use your boat can also determine the type of insurance coverage that you need.
Every insurance policy for watercraft’s are different, meaning you can add extra coverage to fit your needs. Although most boating policies will cover anchoring equipment, trolling motors, seat cushions, etc. other essentials such as towing and medical payments can be included in your insurance policy.
