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.


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

Our adjuster went way beyond our expectations in making sure we understood the claims process and making sure we felt supported with each step of the process . . . I highly recommend Acuity to anyone who is looking for an insurer and hope we can remain a customer for years to come.
