A bass boat is designed to be the ideal boat for inland lakes and fishing. It’s not just a boat; it’s your gateway to an unforgettable fishing experience. Let’s delve into what makes these boats truly special:

Bass Boats are designed with flatter hulls to go into the shallows, have trolling motors, live wells, and typically range from around 16 to 24 feet in length, offering a variety of options to suit your specific needs.

Power and Precision:

These boats are usually equipped with potent outboard motors, providing the strength needed to explore vast waters while ensuring a smooth and enjoyable ride.

We provide a comprehensive suite of boater-tailored coverage including:

icon

Liability:

Imagine you're out on the water and accidentally cause damage to another boat, or worse, someone gets hurt. Liability insurance is there to protect you in such situations. It covers the costs of damage or injuries you are responsible for. While we all hope to never be in such a scenario, having liability insurance is a smart move and helps keep your boating experience worry-free.

icon

Comprehensive and Collision:

Comprehensive coverage is really great for protecting your boat against things we can not control, like fires, theft, or even a bit of mischief. Comprehensive coverage is great for when your boat is in storage and you can't keep an eye on it all the time. Also, if your boat ever bumps into something like another boat, a buoy, or even a dock, collision coverage has got your back.

icon

Uninsured/Underinsured Boaters:

Insurance for uninsured boaters is like a safety net on the water! Imagine this: you're out enjoying the waves when suddenly, another boat bumps into you. Turns out, they don't have enough insurance to cover the damage. That is where underinsured boater insurance comes in! It helps cover the costs for your boat's repairs and any medical bills if needed. It's like having an extra layer of peace of mind, so you can focus on the fun part – sailing! Stay safe and secure out there on the big blue with underinsured boater insurance.

icon

Medical:

Boat insurance is not just about protecting your vessel; it is also about ensuring the safety of everyone on board. Medical coverage is a crucial component of a comprehensive boat insurance policy. It provides financial protection in case someone on your boat gets injured.

icon

On-Water Towing:

We will pay your on-water towing bill up to the limit you choose!

icon

Fishing Equipment:

Should your fishing need to be replaced due to a boat accident or go missing rest assured, you are covered. We will fully reimburse you for the replacement of these items, with a generous limit of up to $10,000.

Boat Insurance FAQ

Coverage Details in Boat Insurance Policies

What is included in my boat insurance policy?

Boat insurance typically covers damage from collisions, fires, theft, lightning, or vandalism, whether on water or land. This includes the boat, its motor, and attached equipment like anchors. It also offers liability coverage for expenses from accidents involving your boat. This can include bodily injury liability, covering medical bills and related costs if someone gets hurt because of your actions, and property damage liability, for damages to others’ boats or property.

Is Insurance Necessary for Less Expensive Boats?

Regardless of your boat’s value, insurance is crucial due to the potential risks involved in boating, like accidents leading to injuries or property damage. Boat insurance can save you from paying these costs from your OWN pocket.

Homeowners Insurance Coverage for Boats

Does Homeowners Insurance Cover My Boat?

Typically, homeowners insurance offers limited coverage for small boats, but not for personal watercraft like jet-skis. The coverage is often restricted to around $1,000 or 10% of your home’s insured value and usually doesn’t include liability coverage.

Off-Season Boat Insurance Coverage for Boats

Should I Insure My Boat During the Off-Season?

Even when not in use, risks like theft or fire persist throughout the year. Keeping your boat insurance active in the off-season protects against these risks, saving you from potential out-of-pocket expenses for damage or theft during these months.

Understanding Boat Insurance Costs

What are the factors that determine the cost of boat insurance?

Boat insurance costs hinge on several key factors, including the boat’s type, size, age, and value, which affect the potential cost of repairs or replacement. The owner’s experience and history of claims can influence rates, too, as insurers gauge the risk level based on past incidents.

Policy choices play a part as well; comprehensive coverage costs more than basic liability, but opting for a higher deductible can reduce the premium. Additionally, safety courses or other qualifications may unlock discounts, demonstrating to insurers a lower risk of accidents.
