What Is PWC Insurance?


PWC insurance helps insure you and your personal watercraft against accidents, vandalism, and liability. Advice Insurance Agency offers you the personal watercraft policy that's right for your needs.


What Does PWC Insurance Cover?


Personal watercraft coverage begins with you. An insurance policy for watercraft typically insures you against the most common liability losses, regardless of whether you are at the controls or you share your PWC with another person. In typical situations such as these, your coverage will usually include:


  • Damage to another watercraft, boat or dock

  • Bodily injury or death to another person caused by your negligence

  • The negligence of another driver who uses your PWC

  • Water skiers under tow or wake boarders injured while using your craft

  • Physical damage to the hull, machinery, and equipment

  • An uninsured watercraft operator who injures you

  • Towing assistance if you break down while afloat


What Is Excluded From A PWC Policy?


You should read every line of your PWC policy to learn what items may be excluded from your coverage. Typical examples of items and situations not covered by most policies are:


  • Any craft modified for speed and performance

  • Operation of a PWC after dark, that is from dusk to dawn

  • Operation of a PWC without a valid drivers license


Insurance needs differ depending on the type of watercraft you own. You should learn the details of your policy to see what is covered and what is specifically excluded.


What Types Of PWC Can We Help You Insure?


While the official definition of a personal watercraft can vary from state-to-state, two of the more common types of personal watercraft that we can help you insure are:


  • A stand–up PWC: This allows for one rider who operates the watercraft while standing or kneeling, rather than sitting

  • A sit-down PWC: This allows the rider to sit or stand, can usually carry two-to-four people and often offers the ability to tow skiers and wake boarders.
