Why would I need Boat Insurance?
Boat Insurance FAQs
Any individual or business that owns a boat or another vessel of some kind should have insurance. Without it, you risk major financial losses if an accident occurs.
Boat insurance policies are available for all kinds of vessels, like fishing boats, recreational boats, jet-skis, and catamarans, for example.
A brand new boat will be in fine condition and isn’t likely to need an assessment. However, if your boat is a few decades old, some insurance companies will require an assessment to check the condition before they agree to insure it.
Yes. In most cases, your personal injury policy covers anybody on the boat.
Usually, you will be required to take out road transit cover to insure you against any damage when transporting your boat.
Most insurance policies don’t place a limit on this, but there are laws surrounding it which must be followed. For example, any boat that is longer than 8 metres must have two experienced crew members on board. Breaching regulations like this could invalidate insurance.
If you purchase a new boat, you can swap the policy to the new vessel. However, a new cost will be calculated based on the new boat.
Yes. Multiple people can be named on a boat insurance policy.
The cost of boat insurance varies a lot depending on the type of vessel you want to insure and how you use it. Your previous experience with boats will also impact the cost.
If you are concerned about the cost of boat insurance, we can help you find the most affordable policies.
