Getting the Right Coverage for Your Marina
Category : Marina Coverage
When you’ve got a marina or yacht club to run, you have to think about the needs and risks associated with your business on both land and water. Your facilities and equipment are exposed to damages that are specific to maritime-based businesses and operations. Additionally, your employees, club members and other personnel expect you to have the right insurance policies in place that protect the various aspects of your marina or boat club.
Understanding my Insurance Needs
In addition to typical coverages for property and worker’s compensation, you should also have sailing club liability coverage. Such a policy should be customized to address typical marina or sailing club considerations:
- Marina facilities and grounds
- Hull and liability protection for watercraft fleet
- Regatta liability protection
- Sailing school education
- Club member property
Your specific business may also benefit from a policy that also addresses Jones Act Coverage for workers, Race Management Errors & Omissions, Directors & Officers Liability and other protections.
Working With the Right Insurer
While there are many insurance providers out there, it’s best to go with one that specializes in covering marinas and sailing clubs. You don’t want to work with a provider that’s willing to take your money but can’t offer guidance or products that truly keep your operations covered.
