If you enjoy boating in the Sunshine State (and who doesn’t?), then you should know about Florida watercraft insurance. Although not required by state law, boat insurance is a valuable investment. From these five protections outlined by American Integrity Insurance, obtaining this coverage is all about staying protected on – and off – the water.

Protection Against Uninsured Boaters
Since Florida boat owner insurance is not required by law, many boaters or operators of personal watercraft don’t have coverage. This means if you don’t have coverage and are involved in an incident with an uninsured boater, you’re stuck with the cost of damages to your boat and even injuries you or your passengers may incur.
Protection Against Reckless Boaters
Unfortunately, many boaters combine reckless behavior with fun on the water. This can include speeding, risky operation and boating while intoxicated. Recklessness is compounded when these boaters also do not have proper insurance coverage. If you’re involved in an accident, knowing that you’re protected against damages and injuries can take a little stress off an upsetting situation.
Protection for Your Purchase
Boats and personal watercraft are not cheap – every significant investment should be protected by insurance against losses. Your boat doesn’t have to be in the water to sustain damage. Florida boat owner insurance can protect you against named storm damage, trailering your boat or even if it is sitting in your yard or docked at the marina.
