Summer’s here— time to launch your Boat!
Back in 2012, Hurricane Sandy caused record-breaking damage to nearly every aspect of life along the coast — and the Boating
and Maritime industry was no different. Boaters got hit hard, but worse was the fact that many boat owners didn’t have
protection or had inadequate coverage. BoatUS, one of the Nation’s largest boat-owners association, estimates over 25,000 boats were damaged in New Jersey at a cost of over $242 million. Marine or Boaters Insurance is not required by The State or Brick NJ, Ocean County or Monmouth County NJ, on any New Jersey Waterways and the Ocean. It’s not required by New Jersey State on motorized or Sailboats, but is important to have insurance on your boat for other reasons.
1. Protection against other boaters. Even if you are experienced with boating,
other boaters may not be as experienced. Collision coverage provides you with financial protection against other boaters or vehicles hitting your boat. Since Point Pleasant
or Ocean County NJ doesn’t require insurance on boats, many other boaters won’t be
covered. You don’t want to be stuck paying the full repair costs if you don’t have to—- so boater’s collision coverage acts very much Auto Collision Insurance.
2. Protection against liability. Boat and Maritime Liability Insurance acts like
liability auto insurance. If an event occurs and damage or bodily harm is caused by you,
the claim can be covered by your Insurance Company. Without Insurance, if your boat was hit by someone else’s boat, you would suffer an out of pocket expense and without insurance, YOU WOULD incur all repair costs yourself.
3. Avoiding the time and stress of a lawsuit. If you don’t have insurance and you cause damage or injuries, the damaged party may file a lawsuit against you. In that situation, you have to take a lot of time and energy to deal with the issue. Avoid all that by picking up boat insurance and keeping yourself covered.
