A Brief Overview of the Types of Boat Insurance

Last updated 4 years ago

A new boat represents a significant investment in your future. To protect your investment, purchase separate boat insurance rather than adding your boat to your homeowner’s policy. In general, there are two basic types of boat insurance: “agreed value” and “actual cash value.” The biggest difference between these two types of boat insurance is how the depreciation is handled. An “agreed value” policy covers the boat based on its value when the policy was written, which means that there is no depreciation for a total loss of the boat. “Actual cash value” policies, on the other hand, factor in depreciation and only pay up to the actual cash value of the boat at the time it is declared a total or partial loss.
