Marine Insurance

What’s your nautical style? You might spend summer afternoons in search of that big bass in your new fishing boat. Perhaps you have the perfect pontoon boat for a relaxed cruise around the lake on the weekends. Maybe your sailboat takes you on solitary journeys wherever the wind takes you.

Boats and personal watercraft are big purchases, but if you love being on the water, you know they’re worth it. With industry-leading features, Farmers® Marine Choice® can help you protect your vessel in the way you want — and your Farmers agent  can help as you customize your coverage.

A hurricane is approaching

A hurricane is approaching
Risk:

The marina where you dock your cabin cruiser is in the path of an approaching hurricane — you want to get it out of the water and hauled to a safe location as soon as possible. 

Coverage:

Plus and Elite packages both help with the cost of professional haul-out when a hurricane or tropical storm threatens your boat — up to $500 with Plus or $2,000 with Elite.


Your motorboat breaks down

Risk:

Your motorboat stalls in the middle of the lake — and won’t restart. You’re not sure what went wrong, but you need help right now.

Coverage:

Optional coverage may help with the cost of emergency labor where your boat is disabled — or a tow to the nearest location where repairs can be made. The Elite package may also cover the cost of gas, oil or a battery, if needed.


You want protection in the Bahamas
