Watercraft Insurance Chicago
In many states, boat and personal watercraft owners will not be required to purchase boat insurance. Illinois and its surrounding states do not require watercraft insurance in order to operate a boat. You may be able to insure a boat while your boat is stored on your property under your homeowner’s insurance policy, but you will not be protected when the boat is in water.
A watercraft insurance policy can insure you against most risks of owning and operating your boat, its motor and its trailer. Just as importantly, it can protect you against liability lawsuits, should you injure someone with your boat or damage their property.
At Insurance Navy, we insure bass boats, sailboats, pontoons, powerboats and other watercraft valued up to $350,000 and 50 feet long. With our watercraft insurance policies, your boat is covered on all lakes and rivers in the U.S. and Canada and in ocean waters within 75 miles of the coast. Unlike other boat insurance providers, we do not require policyholders to submit a navigation plan.
Common types of boats and personal watercraft we insure are:
- Bass and fishing boats
- Pontoon boats
- Personal watercraft
Boats and personal watercraft we are unable to insure include:
- Boats over 50 feet in length or value at more than $350,000
- Personal watercraft worth more than $27,000
