Boat Insurance Brokers

Having a boat opens up a world of recreational possibilities on the water or perhaps your boat is for commercial purposes helping you run your business. Whether you use your boat for leisure or for earning an income, if things go wrong, the bill can be expensive.

Before you even take your boat out of the pen, it pays to have an insurance policy in place that’s right for your boating lifestyle.

 

Finding the Right Boat Insurance Policy

The type of boat insurance you’ll need depends on a few things such as where you store your boat and what you’re using it for. Home insurance doesn’t cover your boat (unless it’s a boat without an engine and damage occurs to it while on your property, not on the water) so you’ll need to take out a separate policy for your boat.

Phoenix Insurance Brokers can work with you to find the type of boat insurance that’s right for you, giving you peace of mind on and off the water. We’ll assist you to consider cover options that suit a variety of boats, boating lifestyles and on-water activities and we’ll work with you to determine how much cover you need.

Factors like how you use your boat, the value of it and your budget will help us determine which policy is best for you.
