Boat Liability Insurance Coverage

Boat liability insurance offers coverage if your boat causes injury to others or damage to other boats, docks, or structures. Injury or damage can be due to direct contact with your vessel or situations caused by your vessel, like large wakes. Good boat liability coverage may provide protection against lawsuits, including the payment of settlements and legal fees.

Additional Coverages

Additional coverages are automatically included in your base contract. If you have questions or other insurance needs, contact your agent to find out what options are available to you.

Newly Acquired Watercraft

Covers your newly acquired watercraft for damage caused by an insured loss, subject to policy conditions.

Reasonable Repairs

If damage is caused by a loss insured, we cover reasonable repairs incurred to protect covered property from further damage.

Emergency Service

Pays up to a certain amount for reasonable costs that you incur resulting from specified emergency service to your boat, motor, or boat trailer. Please reference your policy for details.

Wreck Removal

Pays the reasonable expense you incur for any attempted or actual raising, removal, or destruction of the wreck of your boat when damage is caused by an insured loss and removal or destruction is required by law.

How Much Is Boat Insurance?

The best way to lower your boat insurance premiums is to become a safer boater. For example, you could earn a discount by completing an approved boating safety course. Talk to a State Farm agent to find the discounts available to you.

Need coverage for other items?
