In our continuing effort to serve the nation's boat owners, BoatUS offers a unique benefit — the Theft Protection Program, created to combat the alarming increase in boating thefts and vandalism. Registration in this program is automatic for all paid BoatUS Members.
Our highly visible orange reward decals are designed to serve as a deterrent to thieves and should be conspicuously displayed on your boat and equipment. The Theft Reward Program protects a Member's boat and boating equipment on which the Theft Reward decal is displayed.
Please note: this is not an insurance policy.
In the event your boat or equipment is stolen or vandalized, immediately notify your local police and your insurance company. The $2,500 Cash Reward may be paid to any person or persons providing information resulting in the arrest and conviction of anyone stealing or vandalizing a boat or its equipment which belongs to an active BoatUS Member and displays the BoatUS Theft Reward Decal. Division among multiple parties will be determined by BoatUS.
Law enforcement officers, agents or employees of insurance companies, marinas, towing companies, or other bailees of the protected property are not eligible to receive the $2,500 Cash Reward. Members are not eligible to receive a reward for the theft or vandalism of their own boat or equipment.
The Theft Reward Program is a great way to protect your boat.
