Protect your investment and your family with boat insurance.
A boat is one of the most valuable assets most people own. If you love being on the water, you know they’re worth it. However, you don’t want to risk your boat or watercraft by not having the right coverage.
Know the facts.
Did you know that boat accidents are the 2nd most common cause of vehicle accidents in the United States? The joy of being out on a boat leads many to believe they’re immune to getting in an accident making them more likely to take a risk leading to disaster. Although this may be true in many cases, when it comes to water accidents, anyone can be a victim. According to the National Safe Boating Council, in 2021 there were 4,439 boating accidents resulting in $67.5 million of damage to property as a result of recreational boating accidents.
