Any business that sells new or used boats, rents out boats or other watercraft, accepts trades on boats or provides repairs on boats are all considered to be a boat dealer.  Boat dealers need your everyday insurance such as General Liability, Property Damage Insurance, Workers’ Comp, and Business Interruption Insurance.  They also need more specific types of “marine policies” such as Title Errors and Omissions, False Pretenses, Truth-in-Lending, Inventory Coverage, Engine Hours, and Omissions.

General Liability

For a boat dealer, this type of insurance is written to protect the boat dealership against watercraft liability exposures, pollution coverage, employee benefits liability, and employment-related practices liability.  If you feel that the coverage levels are not enough, dealerships are able to purchase “Bumbershoot Liability”, which is a type of Umbrella insurance coverage for incidents that occur on either land or water.

Marine Garage Liability

This provides more specific liability coverage than General Liability policies. Covers against a loss arising out of bodily injury or property damage that was caused by the insured’s premises, operations, work performed or products.

What Our Customers Say:

Filled out basic information on their website and within hour or so had email from one of the agent (Joe). We talked about needs to quickly act on a Home insurance policy that was being cancelled by a company abruptly. I had two days to find new policy as my other agent I have been dealing with couldn't get me a decent price. Joe was able to help me out with a couple of options. I appreciate his professionalism and his urgency to help me out before the old policy expired in 2 days.

Joe Boyle was excellent in a every way. Typically, the responsiveness of some companies is slow, but Joe was quick. He was so fast at responding to my requests that it took me almost twice as long to reply back. His customer service over the phone, text and email was outstanding. I could not have asked for a better representative. Thanks Joe!

Matt from Fearnow really helped my wife & I out and worked hard to accommodate our urgent request for a home & flood quote. Ultimately, he ended up saving us thousands of dollars by being able to quote with tons of different carriers versus the quotes we were getting directly from captive insurance companies. We very much would recommend Fearnow Insurance!

I am a "people do business with people" person and that's exactly what I get with "Jean." I have been dealing directly with her for all of my insurance needs for many years and she makes sure I am well taken care of. Her expertise has been very helpful when it comes to difficult coverages, as well.. Jean has always gone the extra mile for me! Ergo, why I remain with Fearnow Insurance.

Property Damage Under Boat Dealership Insurance

Property Damage insurance provides protection against damage (e.g. fire, flooding, natural disaster) to buildings or its contents, including employee tools.  It also provides liability coverage for when privately owned boats are in the insured’s care (e.g. for repair) and it covers liability for rented out watercraft.  An extension, Business Interruption insurance, covers the loss of income as a result of the damage.

Inventory Coverage/Open Lot/Dealer’s Blanket

Inventory Coverage expands upon Property Damage insurance by including boats and other watercraft located on the property or at another insured location (such as a storage warehouse) that are owned by or under the care of the boat dealer.

Local & Family Owned

Offices serving the local Tampa, FL and Wilson, NC areas for almost 30 years!

Competitive pricing nationally with world-class customer service!

Title Errors and Omissions

In the event that the insured, the boat dealership, makes an error on the title paperwork that affects the identification of the property, Title E & O insurances provide payment to resolve the issue so that the sale or trade of the boat can be completed.

False Pretenses

Fraud can happen to anyone, including a boat dealership.  False Pretense coverage protects the insured against a loss if they were tricked into completing a trade when the other party did not actually have a proper title or actual ownership to the property they offered in exchange.

Truth-in-Lending Protection

If your boat dealership provides financing for the purchase of inventory, then it is recommended to purchase Truth-in-Lending insurance coverage. The Trut-in-Lending Act is a provision of the Consumer Credit Protection Act and requires lenders to properly disclose certain information to the borrower.  This insurance coverage provides protection for the boat dealership if they fail to comply with the Trut-in-Lending Act through negligence, omission, or error.

Engine Hours Errors and Omissions

This coverage solely protects legal claims regarding a boat’s engine and nothing else.  For example, a claim that is made saying that an error or problem in a boat’s engine caused it to be unable to run as long as it should have been able to.

Protection and Indemnity Coverage

This coverage is for watercraft that are under repair or for sale.  It is designed to provide protection while the watercraft is off-premise, a part of a demonstration of the watercraft’s capabilities while off-premises, and watercraft larger than 26’ in length that are not carrying persons or property for a charge.
