Why YOu Need Boat Insurance
Everyone wants to have a safe experience while they’re out on the water, but operating a boat does come with some risks that could result in costly injuries and damages. Insurance could help cover you, your passengers and your boat as well as other people and their property.
Straub Insurance offers coverage for sailboats, powerboats, houseboats, inboard or outboard motorboats and personal watercraft (Jet Skis, WaveRunners, WaveJammers).
Insurance Protects You and Your Boat
The type of insurance coverage that you need will depend on a number of factors, such as the size, type, age and value of the boat.
You may have boat insurance coverage available through a homeowners insurance policy or you may need to buy a separate policy. A separate boat policy could provide you with additional liability coverage, broader coverage overall and higher limits for watercraft liability. Liability coverage can help pay for damages to someone’s boat, dock or other property.
Ask Straub Insurance which type of policy is best for you. As with any insurance policy, it’s a good idea to talk with your agent about the policy details and coverage limits to be sure you have the protection that you need.
