Alberta Watercraft & Boat Insurance

What is boat insurance?

Boat insurance in Alberta is a form of protection for your watercraft. Water vessels, such as boats, can be insured with a standalone policy or they can be insured under a home insurance policy — but many home insurance providers have restrictions for what type of boat can be included in a policy. Plus, submitting a claim for your boat that is insured under your homeowners policy will affect your home insurance rates.

Having a separate boat insurance policy can offer enhanced coverage that you otherwise would not receive under your home insurance policy. If your boat is important to you, and it’s worth a bit more than your average kayak, you’ll be relieved to know it is properly insured in the event of an accident.
