Typically most wooden boats, as well as high-quality non-wooden boats of traditional design. Please see what qualifies for more details.
For smaller boats, runabouts, utilities, skiffs and launches, we will generally cover you for the amount you request without further documentation. The value you request should include the applicable sales taxes in the province in which your policy coverage applies. If the value is higher than the range we have experienced for that particular make and size, we may request additional information. It may be a special model or prototype, or have historical significance that would warrant a higher value.
There are three types of value related coverage offered in the marine insurance industry today:
Generally, we will need a completed and signed application; several colour photos (interior, exterior, engine and transom), a current out-of-water survey and a premium payment. Any additional information required will be listed in the letter attached to the quote.
Many marine insurance policies have age limits – 15 to 20 years usually. They may also exclude or penalize wood boats. That’s where Hagerty can help. We insure more classic and wooden boats than anyone in the world.
Yes. We can usually issue immediate insurance coverage for boats 26 feet in length or less. A completed application and photos are due within 30 days of a policy being issued.
Unlike most regular marine policies and companies, Hagerty does not specify certain lay-up periods when your vessel must be out of the water. Nor do we limit the regions where you can operate your vessel. Many companies may require you to pay for additional endorsements should you travel outside of the areas listed in your policy. Not Hagerty. Our policy allows unlimited navigation and transportation in all U.S. and Canadian inland and coastal territorial waters.
Out-of-water port risk is available for vessels that will be out of the water for a long period of time. It would cover virtually anything that would happen to the vessel out of the water, including during storage and land transportation.
Our rates are based on limited use. The annual premium rate takes into consideration that the vessel will not be used frequently; however, there are no restrictions on personal pleasure usage.
No. Hagerty offers a wide range of coverage options.
