PWC Policy

Most Jet Ski®, Sea Doo®, or other jet powered crafts aren't covered by a homeowner's policy, so BoatUS developed a PWC policy specifically for safety-oriented PWC owners. Premium discounts are available to boaters who have completed approved boating safety courses.

Featured Coverages:


NOTE: Coverage does not extend to any operator under 14 years of age. BoatUS and other boating safety experts recommend the minimum age of operators be 16. Check your local laws -- many states have minimum age and/or education requirements.

All PWC Policy losses subject to Depreciation. Click Here for more information on PWC Losses.

All BoatUS Policies Include:

24 Hour Claims & Dispatch of Assistance

Our experienced team of claims professionals will dispatch assistance, utilizing our nationwide network of towers, salvors and surveyors to help policyholders through boating emergencies like fire, sinking, theft or fuel spill containment -- even roadside accidents. Your claim is handled by boating experts committed to outstanding service that gets you back on the water -- fast.

Full Salvage Assistance

Covers you for the full cost of salvage, without a deductible, up to the insured value of your boat at the time of the loss.

$25,000 Supplemental Family Medical Payments

To ensure that you or your family do not incur large out-of-pocket expense if injured onboard, our policies also include an additional $25,000 for payments not covered by any major medical policy. This coverage is in addition to the medical payments limit you select with your policy.

Additional Fuel-Spill Liability

In addition to your policy's standard liability coverage, this extra liability protection protects you from claims for clean-up or 3rd-party damage due to the accidental discharge of oil or fuel that can occur in a sinking, fire, collision, grounding, etc. This "green coverage" is crucial now that federal and state laws subject boaters to liability for cleanup, containment, and environmental damage.

Diminishing Deductibles

Receive a 25% discount on your deductible each year you remain claims free, until it reaches $0!
(Begins with your first renewal).

Uninsured Boater Protection

Additional coverage for your injuries caused by a collision where a hit-and-run or uninsured boater is at fault.

Liability for Dock Contracts

A BoatU.S. Exclusive - “ If you signed a contract to dock or store your boat, it may hold you liable for personal injury or property damage -- even if you are not at fault. BoatU.S. offers this unique coverage to protect you from these liabilities the contract may require you to take responsibility for.

Named Storm Haul-Out Coverage
