Why Do Boaters Choose Wells Marine Insurance?

At Wells Marine, you’ll find a variety of AM Best A or A+ rated boat and marine insurance carriers at hand. That advantage allows us to shop for our clients widely and provide choice in your coverage options.

Having a selection of choices available in the insurance markets available to us, rather than the one or two offered by your agency down the street, helps Wells Marine find the right combination of price and product to match with your needs.  If your agent isn’t shopping your marine insurance coverage with multiple carriers, you aren’t getting to see what the “rest of the marketplace” holds for your particular risk.

It’s important to know that EVERY marine risk is rated individually—both the boat and the insured, so shopping as many carriers as you can will help locate the best rate out there. Remember, however, that the lowest rate doesn’t necessarily equal the right product for you—so be sure to ask your Wells Marine Insurance agent about that.

At Wells Marine, we can take the time to explain your coverage and what differences you may find between our quoted product and your current product. Taking the time to dial it in properly and accurately to your risk profile, means fewer “surprises” come claims time—which is the worst time to find out you didn’t have the coverage you thought you did.

This is how our experience, focus on the maritime industry, and depth of carriers as a 100-year-old brokerage pays off for our clients, and why they become raving fans and stick with us year after year.

What Does a Boat Insurance Policy Cover?

Unfortunately, accidents happen – even on the water.

A specialized Boat Insurance policy covers your boat or personal watercraft, as well as its motor against potential loss due to things like:

  • Vandalism
  • Collision with another boat or object
  • Theft
  • Damage caused by uninsured or underinsured boaters

Your policy may also extend to protect extra equipment attached to your boat such as anchors, oars, canopies, life preservers, and fuel tanks. Coverage for fishing equipment and personal property may also be available.

Liability Insurance

Liability insurance can help pay for medical expenses or legal costs if you are at fault in a boating accident. Coverage options can include bodily injury payments, damage to another’s property, medical payments, guest passenger liability, and more.

Additional Coverage Options

At Wells Marine Insurance, we make insuring your boat or personal watercraft easy and affordable by offering extended policy benefits like On-Water Towing and Roadside Assistance when traveling with your boat.

You may also be eligible for money-saving discounts when you insure multiple watercraft or when combining your Boat and Auto policies. Even simple things like being an accident-free boater and completing a boating safety course can help you save money too.
