Boat and Personal Watercraft Insurance

We've partnered with American Modern, a nationwide provider of specialty insurance. This coverage is specifically tailored to provide the liability and physical damage insurance you need for your watercraft.

Boat and Personal Watercraft Insurance is available to residents of Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.

How Much Does Boat Insurance Cost?

Boat insurance costs can vary widely depending on several factors, including location, boat size, and type of watercraft. For example, you won't be paying the same amount for a bass boat as you would for a high-performance boat. If you have significant boating experience or if you've already had insurance, you may be eligible for any of more than a dozen discounts through American Modern® insurance.
