Wooden boats
Hagerty proudly protects most classic wooden boats. Whether you own an original Chris-Craft, Century, Gar Wood or a high-quality reproduction of a classic boat, we've got you covered. If it's collectible, made of wood and in good to excellent condition, Hagerty likely protects it.

Runabouts typically range in size from 14' to 33' and are characterized by a closed top deck with individual cockpits for seating. Examples include barrel back designs, larger triple cockpits and gentleman's racers.

Utilities typically range in size from 12' to 30' and are characterized by a large open interior with only the top deck forward of the windshield. They are some of the most popular designs, as the open interior lends them to things like waterskiing and fishing.

These vessels range in length from 16' to 30'. They are an open configuration usually with seating able to accommodate several passengers. The earliest versions were powered by steam with later versions having small single-cylinder gas-powered engines.
