Don’t Leave the Dock Without Watercraft Insurance
Most home insurance policies have limited coverage for boats. If you own a boat or other motorized water vehicle, watercraft insurance is your best bet. It covers theft, damage, and injuries or accidents while you’re on the water, as well as some of your expensive water sports gear.
