The standard coverage for boats is liability coverage, which will cover you when you are in a collision and you are at fault. Liability coverage can also cover you if someone has an accident on your boat, or they are injured on your boat during an incident for which you are at fault.
You may also get some personal property protection coverage for your boat. Liability coverage will cover another party in the event of a collision, this coverage will cover yours.
Liability coverage could also cover you for spills and cleanup costs. If you spill fuel or oil into water, you may be fined for cleanup costs that can be covered by insurance.
Agreed value coverage is something you should discuss with your insurance broker. You may choose between the actual cash value and the agreed value. Actual cash value will refer to the cash value you could get for your boat that will reflect depreciation. The agreed value will be covered for a value for your boat that you and your insurance agent will agree on.
Emergency towing coverage will provide tows for your boat when you are stranded on the waters and need to be towed to shore.
Broad Navigation Limits
This coverage allows you to go outside of the standard navigation limits of your current location. Your vessel is typically confined to a specific geographic area. If something happens and you are outside of that limit, this coverage will cover you from that risk.
