At Curtis Miller Insurance, serving Parkersburg, WV, we are asked numerous questions about boat insurance. This is because people do not fully understand what boat insurance covers and does not cover. When you purchase insurance, we want to be sure that you know exactly what is being covered and is not being covered. Here is what you need to know about boat insurance and flooding.
Does Boat Insurance Cover Flooding?
In some cases, boat insurance will cover flooding. In other cases, boat insurance will not cover flooding. The easiest way to determine if flooding to your boat is covered is to read through the inclusion and exclusion list. If storm damage is covered under your policy, any flooding caused by heavy rains, tropical storms or hurricanes would be covered. If storm damage is excluded from your policy, flooding caused by these events would not be covered.
How Can You Ensure Your Policy Covers Flooding?
Flooding is not something that is covered or not covered by all insurance companies. However, if your policy does not cover storm damage, you can purchase a supplemental storm damage policy that covers all types of storm damage, including flooding. This helps to protect your boat against storm-related damage, including hail damage, damage caused by strong wind gusts, and even damage caused by a tree or other item falling on your boat in the midst of a storm.
