Things to Consider
- Homeowner's insurance policies provide limited coverage for personal watercraft, however, it's important to be fully covered in the event of an accident.
- The age and type of watercraft you own will affect the amount you pay for insurance.
- You may have other accessories on your boat that should be insured (i.e. trailer, motor).
Methods of Payment
- Pay upfront—if you've got the money saved, you can pay the premium in full on the policy effective date.
- Pay monthly—take advantage of our Smart Pay option so that payments are more bearable.
