Emergency Towing for Boaters
The latest buzz in the marine industry? Emergency Towing for boaters! Did you know that most specialized marine insurance policies include Emergency Towing Coverage? So what does this mean for you? As an example, here’s what a Northstar Policy includes.
If the insured boat becomes disabled for any reason (ie. it doesn’t have to be a claim), a Northstar policy will cover emergency services for the following. There’s no claim on your record and no deductible applies!
- Towing from the site of disablement to the nearest repair facility
- The delivery of fuel or repair parts to the site of disablement, including the cost of the fuel delivered
- The cost of emergency labour performed at the site of disablement
So here’s the deal with this policy. If you ever run out of fuel or need a battery boost, or if your engine dies and you need a tow back to shore, the policy has you covered. Simply contact the closest marina or dealer, have them come out to help and send the bill to Northstar. You’ll be reimbursed – no claim on your record and no deductible will apply! Awesome!
Emergency towing is just one more reason why a specialized marine policy is the best way to go. Make sure you check out your policy to see what’s included. You may have the coverage there and you didn’t even know it!
