Get Caught up on Boat Insurance
Our boat insurance can help protect you against the risks of owning an operating your boat, its motor, and the trailer. On top of that, boat insurance also offers protection against liability lawsuits and medical payments. Talk with a State Farm® agent about the specifics and to get a rate.
Boat Insurance: What’s Covered?
Insure your boat against damage and loss caused by common risks, such as sinking, fire, storms, theft, and collision. The property covered can vary, but the policy will usually cover the hull and other permanent components.
Property Coverage Examples
- Boat, motor, trailer
- Equipment permanently attached to the boat
- Electric trolling motors
- Extra fuel tanks
- Detachable canopies
- Seat cushions
- Life preserves
- Ski and their tow ropes
Our boat insurance policy provides for replacement cost coverage on repairs, to get the boat back to its original condition. Total loss claims are settled on an agreed value basis, meaning you will be reimbursed based on your policy coverage limits.

- Bass Boats

Types of Perils We Insure Against
Boat Liability Insurance Coverage
Boat liability insurance offers coverage if your boat causes injury to others or damage to other boats, docks, or structures. Injury or damage can be due to direct contact with your vessel or situations caused by your vessel, like large wakes. Good boat liability coverage may provide protection against lawsuits, including the payment of settlements and legal fees.
Additional coverages are automatically included in your base contract. If you have questions or other insurance needs, contact your agent to find out what options are available to you.
Newly Acquired Watercraft

If damage is caused by a loss insured, we cover reasonable repairs incurred to protect covered property from further damage.
