Boat/Watercraft Insurance In Kansas

Why Is Boat Insurance Important?

Even though you may not be required to have boat insurance in Kansas, part of being responsible on the water is getting boat insurance. There are also several reasons why boat insurance is essential. Boats can cost thousands of dollars, and regardless of how much your boat costs, it’s likely still an investment. Just a single accident without the right insurance can mean you destroy your investment and have to stop your recreational plans. There is also always the danger of being sued in the courts by a property owner, swimmer, or another boat owner if your boat causes damage or injuries. The right boat insurance can protect your assets and finances if you are faced with a lawsuit and can help pay for court costs and legal fees. Even though home insurance can cover small boats, it’s not enough to financially put you in a good spot.
