Why Boat Insurance?
Fun on the Gulf of Mexico is part of the lifestyle of Sugar Land and neighboring communities. Boating and water sports play a big part in leisure activities, from fishing to waterskiing. Owning a boat, like owning any property, can carry financial risks. Repairs to your boat can be extremely expensive, and the cost of outright replacing a boat can be astronomical. If you own a boat or any type of water vehicle, it is a good idea to get insurance in order to protect your assets. If you are interested in boat insurance and live in the Sugar Land area, call Gulledge Insurance at 281-207-0771.
Types of Damage
There are many different ways your boat or water vehicle may be damaged, including:
- Weather related incidents
What Boat Insurance Covers
Losing a vessel can be disheartening and expensive by itself. However, damage to or loss of gear carries a heavy price as well. One big wave taken abeam can wash several thousand dollar’s worth of equipment over the side in a heartbeat. Boat insurance guards against loss of or damage to:
- Life preservers
- Trolling engines
- Fuel tanks
- Dodgers and bimini covers
- Cockpit and other seat cushions
- Water skiing equipment
Boats and equipment can be damaged even when they’re not in the water. An insurance policy that covers damage or loss while at the dock or in storage provides year-round peace of mind.
In addition to insuring your boat and equipment, it is also advisable to look into personal insurance. Captain, crew, and passengers need adequate coverage, too. If you use your boat for commercial purposes, liability insurance in case of customer injury is especially advisable. Coverage options include:
- Medical coverage up to individual policy limits
- Legal representation in case of an injury sustained during the operation, maintenance, or use of the vessel
