How Do I know If My Boat Is Insured Properly?

Did you know that a boat is insured differently than other land vehicles? If you own a boat, then you know that being prepared is one of the most crucial elements of having fun on the water. You need to know how your boat performs in different weather conditions and if there are any mechanical issues whatsoever. However, another fundamental aspect of boating is making sure that your insurance policy will help protect both you and your family from financial losses due to accidents or damages.

If you live in Reno, NV, and own a boat or another type of watercraft, you might need boat insurance. Your boat insurance policy depends on the level of coverage that you might need. The types of boat or watercraft that can be covered in Reno, NV include:

  • Performance boats
  • Sailboats
  • Fishing boats
  • Classic boats
  • Jet skis, wave runners, and other personal watercraft

The types of coverage available for your boat or watercraft include:

  • Property damage liability
  • Comprehensive
  • On-water towing

Boat insurance is a necessity for anyone who is looking to dock their boat on the marinas or use their boat as collateral. Otherwise, Nevada does not require boat owners to have boat coverage.
