If there’s one thing Northwestern Ontario and Manitoba are known for, it is our beautiful lakes and rivers – Boat Insurance is necessary to enjoy these views by water. It covers the motor, accessories, furnishings, and the main structure of your boat, along with extended trailers.
We recognize that no two boat or watercraft owners have the same products or hobbies and therefore need a customizable solution. The Standard Insurance will work closely with you to determine the most suitable Boat Insurance product for your needs.
Insurance can be applied to many types of watercrafts, including:
- Jet skis/Sea-Doos
- Fishing boats
- Deck Boats
- Cabin Cruisers
What Coverage Options Are Available for My Watercraft or Boat?
There are many types of watercraft insurance to consider, with a variety of extended products to add to your initial policy. Some of the most common types of coverage provided with a basic watercraft insurance policy include:
Uninsured Boaters Coverage
If a boat collides with yours on the water and is uninsured, you could get stuck footing the bill. Uninsured Coverage is there to protect your finances.
Emergency Services Coverage
While healthcare in Canada covers a range of medical services, it does not cover the cost of an ambulance, dive team, or other services required during a boating accident. Emergency Services Coverage pays for these costs in the event of an accident, removing this worry from you and your family.
If you, a passenger, or another person is injured by your boat, your watercraft insurance pays for medical costs outside of provincial coverage. This amount is offered up to the limit specified in your Boat Insurance policy.
Liability protection takes the financial onus off of you if a passenger or other boaters are injured by your boat, or if your boat hits a structure or other property. You are not held financially accountable with Liability Coverage, up to the limit specified in your policy.
Boats often carry more than just passengers, which means you are likely to have food, furnishings, electronics, and a fuel source onboard as well. All of these things can leak out into the water in an accident, polluting the waterway. Pollution Coverage protects against financial damages related to pollution and spills.
Loss of Boat Use Coverage
If you cannot use your boat or Sea-Doo for some reason, your Loss of Boat Use Coverage provides you with a loaner watercraft to ensure you can still get out on the water.
All Risks Coverage
All Risks factors in nearly any threat you could possibly face aboard your watercraft, from fire and hailstorms to vandalism and explosion. You can rest assured that you are financially sound in the event of damage or loss incurred as a result of dangers in your area.
