Do I Need Boat Insurance?
Insurance is about protecting yourself against the unexpected. You will have no doubt made a sizeable investment in purchasing your boat an to damage it without insurance could leave you financially unable to repair or replace it. Boat insurance provides you with the peace of mind of knowing that you are protected from the financial costs resulting from an accident, because your insurance will pay for possible damage.
So, what about when your boat is out of commission – does your boat still need to be insured then? You’d be surprised to learn how many claims occur whilst vessels are left unattended. Whilst the risks to a boat laid up are different from the potential risks when afloat there are still risks to your vessel for example lightning, storm, fire, vandalism and theft to name but a few.
You will also find that it is a requirement of many local authorities and marinas that, to use their mooring facilities, you must have a minimum of third party liability insurance in place.Pantaenius‘ competitive Hull Insurance, on the other hand, covers you for damage to your own boat. As one of the main types of leisure marine insurance policies available, it covers a broad range of damage to a boat’s hull, machinery and equipment.
What Kind of Boat Insurance Do I Need?
As experienced boat insurance company, Pantaenius offers market leading boat cover and a dedicated Third Party Liability Insurance, both of which offer comprehensive cover without unclear exclusions. Additionally, Pantaenius can offer dedicated personal accident cover (including emergency medical expenses and search and rescue) to provide peace of mind for both owner and crew while on the water.
If you plan to employ crew, you can also call upon the Pantaenius dedicated crew products, tailored to cover your liabilities as an employer and the Crew Accident Insurance and Crew Medical Insurance. When making a comparison of boat insurance policies, whilst price is an important it shouldn’t be the only factor you consider. You’ll need to look carefully: That seemingly low premium for your cover may not be all it seems and you may not protected when you really need it.
