Frequently asked questions about a personal boat insurance policy.
Even though most states require boaters to pass a boating safety course, few states require boat insurance. That doesn’t mean you should sail or motor without it! Even if theft or damage to your boat or its contents isn’t a big concern, you are still exposed to liability risks. Without enough coverage, you could put yourself at risk of financial loss.
Small powerboats, with less than 25 mph horsepower, may be covered under your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policy. Larger, faster boats may require a separate boat insurance policy. Check with your insurance agent to see what coverage you need.
Your vessel’s length, type, age, and horsepower are all factors in determining the type of coverage you need — or want. Also, where you cruise, your own boating and driving history, and any formal training or certification you have can all make a big difference.
Owners of larger craft are required by law to have workers' compensation insurance for a hired crew.
