Choose The Best Policy For You

Agreed Hull Value

The best marine insurance protection for your boat, engine and gear. Pays you the most in the event of a claim — the agreed value when you buy the policy for total losses and parts are replaced "new for old." Available for all boat types, excluding PWC.

Actual Cash Value

This boat insurance coverage lowers your premium by paying you the current market price for your boat in the event of a total loss. Recommended for smaller boats, personal watercraft and boats without a lien holder.

Liability Only

Our lowest cost marine insurance policy providing essential liability coverage to protect your assets without the added cost of hull coverage. Includes salvage and wreck removal. Available for boats with no lien holder.

Real Stories from Real Boaters

BoatUS has been wonderful in the recent handling of my claim. The service has been top notch and the staff is both courteous and very knowledgeable. I will never switch insurance companies.

BoatUS - I just finished reading the latest April/May issue of the BoatUS Magazine. I wanted to let y’all know that this was one of the best issues yet. I took notes on several DYI or informational articles that I can reference as I get my boats ready for the season. Thank you!

Love your services. Your membership saved me $669.00 in towing charges in San Diego during a fishing tournament — thank you! Since then I would never consider going out on a boat without your services.

CJ R.

San Diego, CA

Thank you BoatUS for getting me back on the road today when I blew a trailer tire on the way home after having my boat winterized. The only cost to me was the new tire, and about 3 hours on the side of the road.

Steve K.

I would like to thank BoatUS for all the hard work you've put into resolving my claim. The service you provide to Members like me is head and shoulders above the competition and it's been a pleasure dealing with a company that “get’s it.” Job well done!
