2 Tips On Boat Insurance Rates

July 19, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 127

Repairs to any kind of boat can prove very expensive and that is why getting the right kind of insurance to cover such is important. However as you will soon discover when you carry out a search for the best possible boat insurance rates that they vary widely. So you need to spend time on looking at what is available and comparing the rates charged.

Of course there are other things that you can do which can further help to get you the best possible deals when it comes to renewing the insurance policy on your boat. Below we take a look at just some of the things that you could do that in the future could help to ensure that the boat insurance rates you are charged aren't as high.

1. The first thing you do when it comes to renewing the insurance for your boat is to check the limit on the policy you have currently. Is it actually reflecting the value of the boat as it is currently or has it remained that same as that which you paid for the boat originally. You may be surprised to discover that your boat is valued about what it is currently worth and of course this means that you pay much higher premiums.

2. The next thing to be looking at to help bring down the insurance rates for your boat is how much you are being asked to pay in deductibles. If you can afford to increase the amount you are willing to pay in deductibles (excess) if you should need to make a claim against the policy. Most boat owners tend not to make claims for smaller repairs to their boats, but rather will make claims for much larger ones such as damage because of the weather or the boat has been stolen.

Just increasing your deductibles from say $200 to $500 could actually save you quite a bit of money each year when it comes to boat insurance rates. But you must make sure that you can afford to cover these costs should you at some stage need to make a claim against your policy.
