FAQ

divider
This insurance product covers the boat renter or a named operator pre-screened and pre-approved by vQuip for damages or injuries to third parties they cause while operating the insured vessel. This would usually include accidentally running into the dock, hitting another vessel or causing injury to someone other than a family member.
In our opinion, anyone who wants peace of mind throughout that trip would benefit from this product. The price for boats and healthcare have increased significantly over the past 5 years. A brand new boat typically more costing between $40.00 and $75,000 with many more costing above $100,000 so any damage could result in a high cost pushed back to you. In addition, potentail injury claims could push those costs even higher.
The individual who rents the vessel will be covered. Additionally, anyone who is named during the check in process and gets pre-qualified, approved. This does not cover anyone under the age of 18 or anyone not specifically named on the policy.
You could be liable for any injuries to your guests or damage to the other people’s property. This could include hitting o dock while going to a restaurant or injury to a person from another group.
The policy will respond to watersport activities as long as the named Operator or the renter is operating the insured watercraft. It will not cover injuries to the family member of those operators nor will it respond to injuries caused while an unnamed operator is at the helm.
No, this policy does not respond to in-water activities absent the covered vessel’s operation by a named operator. If you accidentally hit a guest or third party other than a family member with the insured vessel while they are in the water through. This policy will respond. Please always shut-off your engine while people are in the water and near your boat through.

We offer additional coverages for purchase in case you want it.

Damage Waiver protects you in case you accidentally damage your insured watercraft up to your contractually obligated limit with athe marina.

Emergency Towing and Assistance covers you for towing a vessel that becomes inoperable or for recover of lost keys.

Medical Payments covers small medical costs incurred due to one of your guests or a third party (ambulance, broken bone, etc.)

Fuel Spill Liability protects you from cases of sudden and accidental discharge of fuel into the water.

Absolutely not. This policy warrants that neither the named insured, renter, nor named operator will operate the vessel while impaired by or under the influence of any narcotics, alcohol, intoxicants, or drusg used with or without a prescription. Operating any watercraft or machinery is inherently dangerous for the operator and everyone around them.
I have to submit a claim. What do I need to do and what information should I provide? If there’s an emergency, contact emergency services immediately if the situation requires necessary action and assistance.
  • Upon return to the dock, notify the dockhand immediately. They will walk you through the remaining process.
  • If you need to submit a claim after you have left the facility call vQuip to notify them of the incident.
    • If the main operator purchased a vessel charter insurance policy, then you need to speak with a vQuip licensed insurance agent to initiate the claims handling process.
    • If the main operator did NOT purchase a vessel charter insurance policy, then you can speak with any vQuip team member for guidance through the claims process.
  • You should also fill out an incident report that includes the following information
    • Named insured including contact information
    • Policy number
    • Date andtime of incident

If you don’t have towing insurance and the boat is damaged in an at fault accident making the boat undrivable, you will be responsible for towing the vessel back to the dock.
