Important Watercraft Coverages
Liability Coverage: This type of insurance will provide coverage for the injuries or property damage that you might cause to another party during a boating accident. This coverage can also assist with the costs associated with wreck removal and fuel spill clean-up liability imposed by a state or the Federal Government.
Uninsured Watercraft Coverage: More than half of all boaters do not carry insurance. This is why it’s so important to have uninsured watercraft insurance. This type of insurance will provide coverage for the repairs and medical treatment that you and your passengers might require following an accident with an uninsured boater.
Loss and Settlement Options
Total Loss Replacement Coverage Settlement: This option is usually available on new or close-to-new boats. This coverage replaces a totaled boat with a brand new model of similar make and quality. In many instances, this option does not cost too much more than Agreed Value and it is well worth the extra premium cost.
Agreed Value Settlement: If your boat is damaged, then this option will pay you the previously agreed upon amount for your settlement.
Actual Cash Value Settlement: This coverage is less expensive and may be the only option for some older boats. The payment for a loss is the actual cash value of the boat at the time of the loss. Usually companies use values from the Kelley Power Sports Blue Book or the NADA to help adjust the claim.
Disappearing Deductible Option: If available, this endorsement reduces the deductible by 25 percent at each claim free renewal. The renewal insurance policy, after four claim-free years, drops to zero. After a claim, the deductible returns to the original amount.
