Most states do not require you to have boat insurance. However, boat insurance offers protection from theft and liability in case of an accident. If you get a loan to pay for your boat, your lender will most likely require you to carry boat insurance. If you have homeowners insurance, your policy may provide only limited coverage for boats and probably doesn’t cover injuries or accidents while you’re on the water. Many types of boats are probably excluded from coverage on your homeowners policy. To make sure you’re covered for boat injuries like water skiing accidents, theft and damage, you’ll need boat insurance. If the other guy doesn’t have boat insurance, you’ll need coverage for uninsured and underinsured boaters. Talk to your Econo-Wise specialist to find out more.
