Watercrafts that fall under the category of "boat" are small powerboats and sailboats.
Physical damage and liability are usually covered under boat insurance Physical damage coverage will pay to repair or replace your boat if it were damaged or destroyed by fire, theft, lightning, vandalism or windstorm The boat itself is covered, outboard motors, boats trailer, and personal property theft of items located on the boat.
Liability coverage will protect in the event in which you are the cause of damage to property or an injury to someone other than you or a family member Liability coverage is usually purchased in increments of $100,000 up to $1 million Liability is very important and can cause just as much financial harm as physical damage.
Yacht insurance generally covers any watercraft that is around 26 feet. Typically larger sailboats, cruisers, and fishing boats fit under the Boat Insurance Quote's yacht category. Yacht insurance is a lot like boat insurance and it has two main types of coverage. Instead of being called property damage and liability, they are called hull coverage and property and indemnity coverage.
If your yacht is damaged due to a fire, theft, windstorm, lightning or vandalism hull coverage will pay to repair it. Hull coverage generally will cover the whole yacht. Sails, furniture, outboard motors, and anything used to operate the yacht will be covered. Even dinghies and trailers may be covered under separate policies.
Protection and indemnity coverage
Protection and indemnity coverage is the same as liability for boat insurance, and pays for damage to property or injury to someone other than yourself or a family member. Just like boat liability insurance yacht insurance is usually offered in $100,000 up to more than $1 million.
If a hurricane is approaching a yacht owner can usually buy a hurricane protection endorsement. It basically pays to take your yacht out of the water if a hurricane watch or warning is issued. It also would pay to cover the costs of hiring a professional to get your boat to a safe harbor because of a threatening hurricane approaching.
A navigational warranty restricts a yacht to a certain area. If your yacht is in the region then it's covered. The region can cover the entire East or West Coast or as small as a Bay. If you would like to plan a trip outside of your navigational warranty area, trip endorsement may be purchased temporarily.
PERSONAL WATERCRAFT (PWC)
Personal Watercraft (PWC), such as jet ski's can sometimes be difficult to insure due to a high number of accidents. About 95 percent of PWC operators are at fault for their accidents. If you own a personal watercraft you would want to purchase insurance coverage including bodily injury, property damage, liability, and theft.

Homeowners insurance provides specific hazard protection and liability insurance to covered policy holders against covered risks to their house and property. House insurance policies contain specific coverage against specific named perils. These perils include fire, lightning, windstorm, hail damage, damage cause by explosion, civil riots, civil disturbance, aircraft, vehicle, smoke, volcanic eruption, falling objects, weight of ice, snow, sleet and even freeze damage to plumbing, heating, air conditioning or household appliance. Additionally perils covered by a home insurance policy also include protection from loss of theft, glass breakage, vandalism or malicious mischief and damage from a sudden and accidental discharge of an artificially generated electrical current or damage caused by sudden and accidental tearing apart, cracking, burning or bulging of a heating/air-conditioning system, a fire-prevention sprinkler system or an appliance for heating water.
Named perils commonly excluded from homeowners policies (be sure to check for specific exclusions) may include damage caused by flood, earthquake, war, nuclear accidents or earth movement. Many home owners however, often buy endorsements or separate coverage specifically protecting them from these type of hazards.
In situations where the covered policy holder owns personal possessions of some value, additional endorsements covering these possessions can be added as well. Jewelry, artwork, firearms, technical and electronic equipment, and other valuables can be protected with these separate endorsements. To cover especially valuable items like these, homeowners need to know the specific guidelines they have to follow in order to ensure that their possessions are insured against any hazard of concern. These guidelines may include directions like taking photos and keeping sales receipts for valuables insured in this manner.
