Boat insurance is a bit of an odd duck in the insurance world!

In many ways insuring a boat is similar to automobile insurance and in other ways , especially for larger boats like motor yachts, sailboats or houseboats, it’s like homeowners insurance. Homeowners insurance may not cover your boat and auto insurance certainly does not unless it’s being towed and even then there are coverage limits.

If you have a larger boat such as a yacht or sailboat or a motor boat over 26 feet , there may be navigational limits on the boat insurance policy. Also boat insurance may not apply when your boat is out of the water! It takes an insurance agent very familiar with boat insurance as well as how coverage for your boat fits into your auto and homeowners insurance policies to sort it all out!

Tips about Homeowners Insurance, Auto Insurance and Your Boat!

In most cases your homeowners insurance will not cover your boat. Many homeowners policies will have a minimal amount of coverage for very small boats with either no engine or a very small engine, like a small sailboat. If you own a boat worth worth $10,000 or more, your homeowners policy is not going to adequately cover your boat.

Like homeowners insurance, a boat insurance policy covers you for liability if someone is injured on your boat and gives you the choice between replacement cost or cash value in a total loss.

In most cases your auto insurance will not cover loss or damage to your boat when it is being trailered. However it will provide liability coverage should you back into somebody with the boat when it is being trailered. The liability coverage in such an incident is limited to the extent of your auto policy limits.

Like auto insurance, boat insurance typically includes coverage for bodily injury that your boat inflicts on others, property damage your boat inflicts on docks or other boats, and physical damage to your boat should you hit something or run aground.

Like auto insurance, you can also purchase comprehensive coverage for your boat for protection against theft, vandalism, fire and flood, personal property coverage (for your fishing equipment), uninsured boaters insurance and even ‘roadside assistance’ in the event your boat motor breaks down and you need a tow.

Keep in mind that your boat insurance policy may not cover your boat when it is out of the water. During transport, your boat may be covered solely by your auto policy, and only to the limits of your auto policy.

Also keep in mind that homeowners insurance may provide limited coverage if the boat is damaged while parked on your property, but it may not stretch to cover stolen contents or vandalism.
