Boat Insurance Policy Questions

Are boat insurance rates higher for new boat owners?

Boating experience is one of the factors incorporated into boat insurance rating. If you have little or no prior
boating experience, it's understandably difficult for an insurance carrier to judge your ability to operate a boat
safely. Therefore, first time boat owners can expect to pay more for boat insurance than an experienced
boater. Completing a boat safety course as a first time owner will demonstrate both a willingness and ability to
operate your boat safely and that can help to reduce rates.

Is there a difference between boat and yacht insurance?

A boat is usually classified as being 26 feet long or smaller, and a yacht is 27 feet and larger. As a longer
vessel, yachts often have larger navigational ranges, encounter a larger variety of hazards, so yacht insurance
tends to be more detailed and expensive than a smaller boat insurance policy.
Boat Insurance Considerations

Hull coverage protects the value of your boat or yacht. There are three primary types of coverage.

Replacement Cost
Under this policy type your totally destroyed 2008 model year boat will be replaced by the insurance company
with the same year and model boat in like condition or you will be given sufficient money to buy that same
year and model in like condition.

Agreed Value Contract
You are paid the boat insurance policy amount limit.

Actual Cash Value
The insurance carrier pays you the depreciated value of the boat.

If your boat sinks in a navigable waterway, you will be required to raise the boat and move it at your own cost
if you have not included this coverage in your boat insurance policy. This can be a large expense so you
should consider the options when setting up your boat insurance policy parameters.

It's also important to remember that your Florida boat insurance will be voided if you travel outside the
specific navigation area that your boat or yacht is insured for. This is normally a warranty / guarantee on
most boat insurance policies. Study your policy closely.
