Why Watercraft Insurance is important
It protects you financially in the event that you damage or your watercraft is stolen.
You’re covered while ashore, afloat or during transportation, and you’re protected for liability to other people if you cause bodily injury or damage to their property. It’s necessary to insure your watercraft for its market value, to qualify for appropriate reimbursement in the event of a claim.
