Of course, you hope that nothing bad will ever happen when you are out enjoying your boat, but if something does happen, it is important that you have enough liability insurance to protect your assets. If you cause an accident where someone is injured or dies, the resulting expenses could be very high. You would be responsible for medical expenses and any judgment against you. This insurance would also repair or replace someone else’s boat or dock that you damage. Having enough liability coverage is vital.
If you have an accident and are at fault or hit something like a submerged rock, you need to take care of the repairs to your boat yourself. This can be very expensive, depending on the extent of the damage. Collision coverage comes with a deductible, and you decide when you choose your policy the deductible, you are comfortable with.
Comprehensive coverage protects your boat from other types of damage. It covers things like strong winds, fire, hail, vandalism, and theft. Things over which you have no control.
If you have special equipment in your boat, whether for fishing or navigation, this needs to be covered separately.
