In 2014, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) published an annual report including statistics on boating accidents for that year. The FWC cited 634 boating accidents for that year. With such a statistic in mind, it's important that boat/watercraft owners in Florida protect such a valuable asset.
Boating is a huge recreational sport in Florida. From that same report, the FWC found that Florida led the nation in the number of registered vessels. At that time, there were 899,635 registered boats or other watercraft. The FWC also estimated that there were up to one million vessels that are actively used in Florida's waters, but not registered. With these numbers continuing to grow, boat owners need to ensure that their vessels are adequately covered from potential accidents.
Having boat insurance means having protection of a large valuable asset. Insurance may provide protection against theft or damage. In the case of an accident, insurance may cover the policy holder for injuries to the holder or to others. A policy can also cover gear on the boat and/or personal belongings.
