Insurance that covers
what is Boat insurance?
Boat Insurance Policies often resemble Auto Insurance Policies. Boat Insurance covers you in the event of a loss or damage to your boat. It covers most watercraft with motors, including fishing boats, pontoon boats, paddle boats, leisure crafts and yachts. Policies can vary between the companies but the main types of coverage are Bodily Injury and Property Damage Liability Coverage. Other optional coverages often include Medical Payments Coverage and Uninsured/Underinsured Boater Coverage.
Whatever you ride, you need insurance for your boat and assets. American Safeguard Insurance has coverage options that enable you to get the Boat Insurance policy you want.
Risks We Cover
You have an accident
You hit a submerged object, damaging your 10-year old motor.
If you carry Comprehensive and Collision Coverage, we’ll pay what it costs to return your watercraft to its pre-accident condition or better.
You damage your boat
You crash your boat into the pier when trying to dock it, causing thousands in damage and injuring people on the pier.
Bodily Injury Liability covers you if you’re in a boat accident and liable for injuring others. Liability Boat Insurance also pays to repair or replace any watercraft, object or other property you damage while boating, plus legal expenses if you’re sued.
an uninsured boater damages your boat
Another boater without insurance hits you and injures everyone on board. The boater is uninsured and can’t afford to pay out-of-pocket for the injuries caused.
If you’re hit by a boater with no insurance or not enough insurance, Uninsured and Underinsured Boater Coverages will pay for your injuries and damages up to your policy’s limits.
you're injured in an accident
You’re fishing and accidentally cut your hand with a sharp hook. You need stitches and have an expensive medical bill.
