Watercraft Insurance

What is watercraft insurance?

Effectively, watercraft insurance is like car insurance. Like car insurance, something like personal liability coverage provides coverage to other boaters and boat owners in the event you are at-fault for an accident on the water. This coverage will pay to repair or replace the property of someone else as well as for their medical care, lost wages and other costs incurred as a result of a boating accident for which you are at-fault.

Do you have to have it?

Some places require it, but not usually. Since boat coverage is not always mandatory, many boaters choose not to get insurance. If it isn't required, why get it? If you are hit by an uninsured or underinsured boater, and you are injured, your watercraft insurance can, with the right coverage, pay for medical treatment, lost wages, and other costs associated with the accident.

So it protects my boat, what else?

Aside from some medical costs, it can also protect items that are in the boat. Your policy can provide coverage for many personal effects, including clothing, cell phones, scuba/snorkeling and other sporting equipment, and fishing equipment. Limits vary by state – check with Allegiance for information. Personal effects coverage does not include jewelry, watches or furs. If you have some of those which you would like to be protected, explore Valuable Item insurance.

What about emergencies?

Yes, watercraft insurance can help emergency services. The Emergency Assistance Package provides coverage for towing, labor and delivery of gas, oil or loaned battery if the watercraft is disabled while on the water.

What else can watercraft insurance cover?

COVERAGE FOR

Equipment

This pays to repair or replace equipment that isn’t permanently attached to your boat or personal watercraft, but is designed for use primarily on a boat. This includes items like lifesaving equipment, water skis, anchors, oars, fire extinguishers, tarps etc.

COVERAGE FOR

Agreed Value

Watercrafts depreciate just like automobiles. Actual cash value policies can make it difficult to replace a boat that’s been stolen or destroyed. This means that if your boat is a total loss you will get the value you insured it for, minus any deductible.

COVERAGE FOR

Medical Costs

Medical payments coverage will pay for the cost of needed care that is the result of a boating accident. This coverage is available from $500 to $10,000 and covers you, your passengers, and even your water skiers/tubers, regardless of who is at-fault.

COVERAGE FOR

Navigational Area

Some companies, such as Safeco Insurance, offer protection that covers you up to 75 miles from the U.S. coastline; into Canadian coastal or inland waters; and into the Pacific coastal waters of Mexico. In California, Florida and Oregon, additional coverage area can be purchased.

COVERAGE FOR

Fuel Spills & Wreckage

Should your boat sink or be seriously damaged, there is a chance that it could leak oil or fuel into the water. As the boat’s owner you are required by law to have this cleaned up, which can be time consuming and expensive.

COVERAGE FOR

Physical Damage

Physical damage coverage pays for the cost to repair or replace your watercraft, its motor, any permanently attached equipment, and your trailer, if it is stolen or damaged.

What if I keep my boat in a different state?

If the state you keep your boat in and the state you have permanent residence in are different, just let us know. What you pay and certain aspects of coverage are dependent on state laws.
