Among the Best Boat Insurance Quotes in Canada

You work hard to ensure your watercraft is kept in pristine condition, enjoying your carefree summers riding around on crystal-clear lakes and rivers, and creating memories for years to come. However, any boat owner knows that despite their best efforts, sometimes issues can arise and land their vessel in a state of repair.

 Although it is not mandatory in Canada, boat insurance provides peace of mind in those situations, protecting yourself and your investment. 

Boat insurance ensures that you are covered in the event of unforeseen circumstances. This means that you won’t be paying hefty prices out of your own pocket. If you are considering getting this type of protection for your vessel, quotes are readily available online and can help when you are shopping around for the best policy. 

At Portside Insurance, we have decades of experience when it comes to insuring watercraft of all kinds. Our policies are thorough, covering all aspects of your boating needs. Our agents in Ottawa are available if you would like a more personalized quote as well. We are open Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., as well as Saturdays from April 1st to September 30th from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.


Boat Insurance Claims

With a reliable insurer, filing claims for your vessel should be a seamless experience, one where all of your questions and concerns can be readily answered. Repairs should be performed promptly and effectively, allowing you to get back out on the water as soon as possible.

 At Portside Insurance, we will work with you to ensure that solutions, such as finding specialized parts, are possible in the first place, and we’ll keep you updated every step of the way. We recognize that accidents can happen for all kinds of reasons; perhaps you hit a rock while exploring a new area and bent your prop, for instance, or maybe you were unable to stop while docking and damaged your hull. 

Winterizing is an essential part of boat ownership, but what happens if a pest moves in and destroys your navigation system in the process? We’re here to help, regardless of the issue at hand with your vessel.

When signing up for a policy with us, we provide a complete list of incidents that might lead you to make a claim to ensure you, as the policyholder, are informed. Even if your watercraft sustains damage and you are unsure about your coverage, our brokers are happy to discuss what happened and advise you on the capacity of your insurance. We never want our clients to feel like they are stuck in the water without support.
