Boat Insurance Explained

Your boat is more than just a boat; it’s a significant investment. Whether you have a top-of-the-line wake boat with all the bells and whistles or a fishing boat equipped with all the electronics to reel in a master, boats are often a large investment you’ll make. Don’t let the unexpected mess with your next boating adventure. Boat insurance for peace of mind while out on the water.

Whether you own a sailboat, a motorboat, an inflatable, a Jet-Ski or Seadoo, your insurance policy can also cover other items like boat motors, trailers, or your GPS system. Your boat insurance will also protect you from the following:

  • Property Damage
    Damage you cause to someone else’s watercraft or property.
  • Damage to Your Boat
    Including theft or loss of attached equipment.
  • Liability Coverage
    You come in contact and run into another boat while out on the water.

Home insurance policies don’t provide comprehensive boat coverage. Generally, it can be the most cost-effective to insure a boat separately. Through a separate boat policy, you may get better coverage geared specifically towards watercrafts, and in turn, your boat insurance could cost less. Connect with us to discuss whether your watercraft is best covered under your home policy or if it’s beneficial to set up a boat and marine policy. If you insure your boat on a stand-alone watercraft policy and need to make a claim, it will not affect your house insurance claims rating or premium.

  • It helps protect you, your watercraft, and your passengers should you become involved in a boating accident
  • Before you can store your watercraft at a marina, you may be asked to provide proof of boat insurance
  • When buying new watercraft, the finance company may request proof of insurance

Anyone operating a boat in Canada needs their pleasure craft operator’s card along with the right boat insurance policy. Driving a boat without the proper certification could potentially void an insurance policy in the event of an accident or a liability claim.

What Factors Determine the Cost of Boat Insurance In Saskatchewan?

Not all boats are the same which means not all policies will cost the same. Aside from the type of policy and coverage that you choose, factors that affect your boat insurance price include:

  • Size of Boat
  • Value
  • Trailer Value
  • Accessories Value
  • Occupancy Limit
  • Location Used
  • Motor Size
  • Boat Use
  • Hauling Distance to Destination

Claims Example

Impacts with submerged objects such as rocks or deadheads are the most common claim we see when it comes to boat homeownership. For example, you’re out on the water and come in contact with a rock that is submerged just under the waterline. This can cause upwards of $10,000 to $50,000 worth of damage depending on the type of boat and damages. The right boat insurance policy will help mitigate these risks and get you back to your normal as quickly as possible.

10 Fun Facts About Saskatchewan

  1. Saskatchewan’s license plates have the slogan “Land of the Living Skies.” Who could disagree with that? From clouds rolling through to the dazzling sunsets, who needs any other entertainment?
  2. Love driving? Then you’re in luck as there are more roads here than any other province in Canada. You can drive around the equator four times or the equivalent of 160,000 kilometers.
  3. You may think that Saskatchewan is a flat, farmland province, but you’d be wrong. Venture further north to have forests and close to 100,000 lakes greet you.
  4. Residents of Saskatchewan don’t struggle with time changes as there is no Daylight Savings Time.
  5. Sunshine is Saskatchewan’s specialty as it’s the sunniest place in Canada. Over 2,000 hours of sunlight a year. Even better, Estevan wins this contest with 2,435 hours of sunlight in the year.
  6. Saskatchewan has a unique shape as a province. It follows the lines of longitude and latitude, which makes it a geometrical shape. Every elementary school student knows that this was always the easiest province to draw!
  7. The province is famous for sand dunes. Some dunes in Great Sand Hills are up to 25 meters high.
  8. Regina is home to the longest bridge over the shortest span of water. The Albert Street Bridge, which was built in 1903, is 850 feet long. However, the Wascana Creek below is only a few feet wide.
  9. The province is home to many storm systems. In 1973 in the town of Cedoux, a grapefruit-sized piece of hail was found, weighing almost 300 grams.
  10. The official sport of Saskatchewan is curling. Hard to argue when most towns have a local curling club.
