Why do you need Boat & Watercraft Insurance?


In Florida and like almost every other state, it’s illegal to drive without car insurance. Every state has a legally required minimum liability coverage. If you are unable to provide proof of insurance in Florida, you run the risk of having your vehicle impounded, and your license suspended and fined. If you make a habit of getting caught without it, you could end up in jail. The other good reason to have car insurance is consistency. It’s easier to pay monthly or quarterly premiums than to swallow the sudden cost of an unfortunate accident.

Here are some specific circumstances that personal car insurance would cover:

Boat Insurance covers you in the event of a loss or damage to your boat.
