What does a boat insurance policy cover?
Boat Insurance Coverage Types
Physical Damage Coverage
Protect your watercraft against most accidental damage or loss while it’s afloat, in transit or in storage. This coverage usually includes your manufacturer-installed equipment, outboard motor, sails, spars and rigging.
Your boat isn’t where you left it docked last night, with evidence pointing to theft. Physical damage coverage may pay for a replacement.
Boat Liability Coverage
Boat owners can be held legally responsible for injuries or property damage resulting from accidents. That may include accidents involving water skiers, swimmers, collisions with docks or other boats and more. We offer a range of liability coverage limits to protect you, including paying for first aid and defense expenses.
Medical Expense Coverage
This boat insurance policy covers medical services within policy limits for your passengers, regardless of who is at fault.
You and your best friend go to the hospital after a fishing trip gone wrong, with bills totaling $6,000. Medical expense coverage with a $10,000 policy limit will pay for both of you.
Fuel or Oil Spill Cleanup Coverage
Every boat and watercraft policy includes up to $10,000 per loss for fuel or oil cleanup from an accidental spill. The limit for this coverage in any 12-month policy period is $20,000, which you can choose to increase.
A leak in your motor caused fuel to spill on your driveway, leaving an inky trail. Fuel and oil spill cleanup coverage helps pay for the removal effort.
Emergency Roadside & On-Water Service Coverage
Watercraft breakdown services are included with every physical damage plan. This coverage starts at $500 and can be increased as necessary. This includes mechanical labor at the breakdown site, towing for repairs and the delivery of fresh fuel supplies.
Your vessel’s engine breaks down far from the marina, leaving you stranded. Emergency on-water service coverage brings a mechanic to your boat and helps you return to land safely.
Watercraft Equipment Coverage
Our physical damage policies include up to $3,000 of watercraft equipment coverage. But you can increase your limit to fit your needs. It covers boat accessories not installed by the manufacturer as part of the original sale. Covered items include safety gear, water sports equipment and auxiliary outboard motors.
Additional Boat & Watercraft Insurance Options
Build your custom boat insurance policy with these optional add-on coverages.

Catamarans, dinghies, day sailors—if it has a sail—our sailboat coverage may be able to protect it. We also offer add-on coverages for more protection. For example, our emergency roadside and on-water assistance can get you home if the wind dies on you.
