COVERAGE FOR YOUR BOAT

Boat insurance also known as watercraft insurance. To be eligible for insurance,

it may be required that the watercraft be 26 feet or less in length. If it longer it might be considered a yacht. If you own a small power boat with a motor that performs at less than 25 miles per hour horsepower, it might be covered under your homeowner’s insurance policy.

Small sail boats and canoes might be also covered under your homeowner’s policy.
