We’re Your Safe Harbor

Your local agent can offer personal advice about product availability in your area and how much coverage is right for you.
Included With Every Policy
Every boat and personal watercraft insurance policy includes some great coverage to ensure your time on the water is worry-free and enjoyable.
All boat and personal watercraft policies are agreed value, no matter the age of your boat or personal watercraft. If your boat is declared a total loss after an accident or theft, you’re covered for the total value we agreed upon when you insured it. There’s no complicated depreciation formula based on the age and condition of your boat. All you pay is the deductible. If your boat or PWC is a total loss, we’ll cover everything else up to the value we agreed upon.
Fishing Poles, Water Skis, Cushions and Coolers
With personal effects coverage, your fishing gear and other personal property is covered for up to $7 Unattached equipment like water skis, deck chairs, anchors, safety equipment and marine electronics is automatically covered for up to 10 percent of your hull value or $100, whichever is greater.
Fuel Spill and Wreckage Removal
Coverage for cost related to cleaning up fuel spills and removal of accident wreckage is included in every boat insurance policy. If your boat sinks or is 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. Your insurance will also help pay costs related to having your sunken or sinking boat raised and removed when required.
