BOAT & YACHT POLICY


Here's what we'll cover with your boat policy.

Acuity is different than most insurance companies. We have the products you need as a boat owner and top-notch service. So you can get out there and soak up the sun and leave your insurance worries behind.


Discounts

Enjoy a discount if your yacht has a ship-to-shore radio telephone, built-in CO2 fire extinguishing system, vapor detection system, or depth finder, or if it is powered by a diesel engine. There’s also a discount available for those completing a yacht instruction course.


Accessories and personal effects

A $500 limit is included at no charge to provide coverage for boat accessories and other personal property.




Boatowners program

This program is designed to insure boats 26 feet or more in length as well as boats with cooking and sleeping facilities.


Flexible coverage options

Unfortunately, it’s not always smooth sailing. That’s why we provide the option of selecting the coverage that works best for you, whether that’s choosing specific coverages or selecting the single limit option to cover your boat, motor, trailer, and accessories.




Road and Residence®

This unique package provides all the coverage you need in one policy with increased limits, added coverage, and discounted prices.


Save up to 20%

Package your home, auto, & boat coverages

The Road and Residence® program combines home, auto, and other personal insurance into one policy with value-added features.

Our passion is our customers and it shows.
