Boat/Watercraft Insurance

It's no secret that Minnesota residents love lake time. But before you head out to enjoy the great outdoors, it is important to have proper insurance coverage. Here's what you need to know.

What is Boat/Watercraft Insurance?

Personal watercraft and boat insurance is exactly what it sounds like—a policy that covers accidents, weather damage, theft, and more. This type of policy is also required in some circumstances, such as when you’re still making payments to a lender. It also protects you against injuries if you’re involved in an accident on the water and someone in your boat or another vessel becomes injured as a result.

Why Do You Need Boat/Watercraft Insurance?

Owning a boat or personal watercraft can be a lot of fun but making sure you have enough insurance coverage is important. The liability risk you encounter while on the water can be huge and it’s vital to be covered. In addition, you’ve spent a lot of money on your boat and you want to ensure it can be repaired or replaced if it is ever damaged or stolen.

What You Need to Know About Buying Boat/Watercraft Insurance

To put it simply, buying a boat or personal watercraft insurance policy isn’t difficult.
