- Consequential Damage Coverage

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.
