Boating and all of the many different ways that marine and fresh waterways can be used in recreation can be very satisfying and fun. But behind all the enjoyment, it is important to remember that boating has many of the dangers of driving. Operating a powerboat, speedboat, yacht, sailboat and/or personal watercraft can cause substantial injury to other persons. It can also result in heavy damage to others’ property. While many boats can be fairly inexpensive, the average costs of even modest boats can rival automobiles. Some boats are the expense equivalent of luxury autos or even medium-sized homes. It is important that you have the financial support to handle a serious loss to your property. It is even more important that you have assistance in taking care of large claims or lawsuits involving harm you may cause to others.
Liability coverage pays for damages, other than punitive or exemplary damages, for bodily injury and/or property damage for which an insured person becomes legally responsible because of an accident arising out of the ownership, maintenance, or use of a boat. When the customer is legally required, liability coverage pays for the raising, removal or destruction of the wreckage of a covered watercraft. There are multiple coverage limits available up to $500,000 CSL.
