Coverage Start Date
The effective date of your policy can range from 1-60 days in the future. This is the date your coverage will begin.
Agreed Hull Value Coverage
Agreed Hull Value Coverage is the most protection you can buy. In the event of a total loss, you are paid the boat's value, as "agreed upon"
by our underwriters at the time you purchase the policy, with no deductible. Also, if your boat is brand new (under a year old)
and is a total loss, it qualifies for new boat replacement coverage. For other (partial) losses, your policy pays the reasonable
cost of repairs and replacement parts. It's important to note that all materials will be subject to depreciation once the boat
reaches 20 years of age. With an Agreed Hull Value policy, you pay more premium up front for total protection,
but less out of pocket expense in the event of a claim.
Actual Cash Value Coverage
Actual Cash Value Coverage is an economical option for boaters who want
to save on premium and pay more out of pocket for repairs in the event of a claim.
In the event of a total loss, you will be paid the current market value of your boat.
In the event of a partial loss, in addition to paying the deductible, all materials will
be subject to depreciation once the boat reaches 20 years of age.
Liability Only Coverage
Liability Only Coverage If you are looking for a lower cost option, you may want to consider our
Liability Plus Policy. This policy provides the essential coverages you need without the added cost
of expensive hull coverage, though you take on the cost to repair or replace your boat in the event of a claim.
