Heading Out on Your Jet-Ski? Here’s Why You Need Insurance

Posted in PWC on Dec 10, 2020.

For those who want a little more excitement and freedom on the water, PWCs (Personal Watercraft) aka jet-skis or SeaDoos, is as close as you can get to flying right over the waves. There’s nothing to compare with the feeling of the wind streaming past your face, the lake spray at your ankles, and feeling like the entire lake is yours to explore. However, if you’re skimming over the waves without personal watercraft insurance, the only thing standing between you and a ruined day on the water is a little bad luck.


Why Do You Need to Insure Your PWC - Jet-Ski or SeaDoo?

Insurance is one of those things where you don’t fully appreciate it until you need it. When everything’s going right, it’s hard to imagine that anything could go wrong. Let’s imagine one of those days on the lake: you’re on your jet-ski, the sun is bright, the water’s refreshing, and you’re racing along the water toward an island for a picnic. Suddenly – you hear a noise.

Now what?

Well, if you have personal watercraft insurance, all you have to do is make a call.

What Does PWC Insurance Cover?

Jet ski insurance isn’t just for repairing paint scratches. Its protection extends out on to the waves, so it’ll be there right when you need it.

  • Emergency towing services mean that no matter where you are, you’ll be able to make it back to shore.
  • A standard liability coverage of $2,000,000.00, so if someone gets hurt, you’ll be covered.
  • A dedicated in-office claims specialist to act as your liaison between yourself and the watercraft insurance company, making sure that you get back out on the water as quickly as possible.
  • Vermin coverage to protect your jet-ski or SeaDoo from intrusive raccoons or rats while it’s in storage in the off-season.
