Program packages

There are special program packages available for those who spend a lot of time with water activities. One package you can purchase includes water sports liability coverage, which covers the risks related to water recreational activities.

The two types of watercraft insurance

There are two basic types of coverage from which you can select.

Agreed Amount Value

If you choose this policy, the client and insurer agree upon your watercraft value.

Actual cash amount

If you select this type of coverage, then the actual value of your watercraft is the amount you will get.

It’s important to know in advance what type of policy you are choosing so that in the unfortunate event an accident occurs, you are not caught off-guard.
