Boating and Water Safety
We are entering the long days of our summer, and many of us will soon be enjoying water skiing, boating, river rafting, and riding personal watercraft with our family and friends. According to the U.S. Coast Guard, over 85% of water related accidents occur between May and August. Each year, the U.S. Coast Guard reports more than 4,000 accidents, over 500 deaths and over $40 million in damage from boating accidents.
Before you hit the water, make sure you have the right kind of watercraft or boat insurance. You will need coverage for the hull, and liability coverage in the event of an injury. Boat policies can cover damage to your boat, motor, trailer, and personal effects in the boat. Available coverage includes liability, medical payments, coverage for injury to a water skier, and damage to the boat itself, sometimes called hull coverage. Call our office today for more information.

Boat or Marine insurance is available for small boats, yachts, high performance powerboats, live-aboard houseboats, catamarans, and pontoons. Marine insurance will cover intended use including personal recreation, commercial, or charter vessels.
