When you’re out on your boat enjoying those blissful summer days, accidents can blindside you in a moment and leave extensive damage behind on your prized asset. That’s why getting your boat insured is important so you can keep it safe from any unforeseen collisions, fire, vandalism or theft. Get the coverage and protection you need to feel at ease any time you head out on the water with the help of our team at Portside Insurance.

Comprehensive Boat Insurance in BC

It can be challenging, overwhelming and downright confusing when you’re trying to sift through all of the different policies and insurance products out there and determine what’s a good fit for your boat. The right type of coverage depends on many different factors that must be taken into account, including the type of boat that you own, the frequency that it’s used and the size of it. Since every insurance company varies in terms, rates and deductibles, you might end up overpaying for subpar coverage that won’t fully protect you and your boat when the time comes. With our team of independent brokers on your side, you won’t have to stress about any of that. At Portside Insurance, we work for you, not the insurance companies. This means we will do all of the leg work to source the best insurance products available. It doesn’t matter if you own a small fishing boat, pontoon, sailboat or otherwise, we will find the right policies and rates, and guide you during the entire process to help you make a well-informed decision.

Policies Suited for Your Lifestyle

Getting the necessary coverage means diving into the details of how you plan on using your boat. Whether you want to take the boat across provinces, hire a crew to help maintain it, or just zip around your local area with the family, our representatives will work directly with you to ensure the type of policies make sense and won’t hinder your lifestyle or future plans.

Bundling and Add-ons

Boat owners typically need more coverage to protect other personal belongings on board their boat, such as fishing supplies, or to cover them in case of an emergency situation that requires towing. Common add-ons include:

  • Liability coverage
  • Replacement costs
  • Personal effects
  • Upgrade replacements
  • Fishing equipment and supplies replacement
  • Emergency expense reimbursements

At Portside Insurance, we will lay it all out for you and explain all of the options available when it comes to boat insurance in BC. Contact us today to talk with one of our representatives.
