Last month, the United States Coast Guard released their 2017 Recreational Boating Statistics Report. According to the report, last year saw a decrease in recreational boating accidents from 2016. The Coast Guard reported over 4,000 accidents that involved 658 deaths, 2,629 injuries and approximately $46 million dollars of damage to property.
As we near the official start of summer, it’s also the start of the Atlantic hurricane season, which runs June through November. Last year the United States and its territories saw major devastation, as hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose and Maria blew through and made landfall.
Accidents happen to even the most careful yacht and boat owners, which is why proper boat and yacht insurance coverage is essential.
National Marine Underwriters (NMU) can help provide protection specifically designed for your unique boat and yacht insurance needs.
Our goal is to make insuring your boat as easy as possible—so you and your family can spend your free time on the water, not worrying about insurance paperwork.
