More Insurance

Coverage for Pleasure Boats And More

We cover most personal-use boats (including pontoons, motor boats, fishing boats, and personal watercraft), as well as the trailers, motors, and equipment you need to transport them. In other words, you’ll be covered both on the water and on your way to it. Your local agent can help pinpoint exactly which coverages and discounts apply to your situation.2

Liability Coverage

If you’re legally liable in a boating accident, boat liability coverage can help pay for injuries and property damage to others.

Replacement Property Coverage

Don’t let the cost of damage keep you off the water. This option covers vessels, motors, and trailers which are acquired during the policy period to replace previously covered items.

Newly Acquired Property Coverage

This coverage helps protect newly acquired vessels, motors, and trailers which are obtained during the policy period.

Medical Payments Coverage

This can offset your health insurance deductible and pay out for your passengers’ injuries if necessary. It’s also an added buffer if you’re liable in an accident that causes serious injuries.

Wreck Salvage & Removal

This pays for the cost to raise, remove, or destroy the wreckage of a covered vessel if it’s stranded, destroyed by fire, or sunk.

Towing and Emergency Services

Emergency service includes on-the-water towing, fuel drops, soft ungroundings, dock-to-dock towing, and jump starts if your boat breaks down on the water. Trailer tire changes are covered as well.3

Personal Property Coverage

This protection covers your personal property while it’s aboard your boat or water craft. It’s added peace of mind in case something important is lost overboard.

Uninsured/Underinsured Boater

If someone in an uninsured or underinsured boat or watercraft causes damage to you and your boat, this coverage kicks in. Although it’s not required, it still protects you from the risky behavior of other boaters.
