Marine Insurance (n) def: not the lottery, not the inheritance, not the stock split, not the penny jar....

MARINE INSURANCE: There are several different types of marine insurance relating to boat ownership including that for private pleasure yachts, vessels that are used as the primary residence, cruising vessels, charter vessels being used for sportfishing or sightseeing such as water taxis, as well as commercial vessel coverage that is provided for fishing boats, tugs or barges. Most require an up-to-date survey.  Marine Insurance also covers Yacht Dealers, Brokers and marinas, including general liability, dealer inventory, marina operators and their legal liability, and independent marine vessel maintenance engineer working on boats in and around marinas, yacht clubs, etc.

Most marinas require that you carry insurance on your boat in order to keep it in their marina. Coverage will vary depending on the marina and some will require additional liability if you liveaboard. Lenders also require financed vessels to carry a complete insurance package. Be sure to ask for additional coverage or a rider covering any "unusual" electronic equipment you may have on board, such as a computer, free-standing stereo system, television, VCR or telephone equipment. Also check for coverage on your dinghy, equipment you may lose overboard, coverage during races, in foreign waters and even in certain times of the year, such as hurricane season or ice season and the dreaded questions regarding salvage, replacement and the like. There's a lot to insurance and a good agent is probably someone you want on your side. Not being informed as to what your coverage is and is not can be a costly lesson in asking a few questions.
