“HELLO, BOATU.S.? MY BOAT JUST EXPLODED!”
SOMETIMES IN THE CURRENT WORLD, it’s difficult o find anyone who you feel will really take care of you. How will you know if insurance companies will do what hey say they’ll do — until it’s too late? Well, BoatU.S. is now at the top of my list of companies who do what
they say they’ll do!
From my first contact, the day after the fire and explosion that
destroyed my boat, Kerry from BoatU.S. was there to help and guide
me through a difficult process. Then you assigned an attorney, Larry
Altenbrun, at no expense to me to help me with mediation, so that I
wouldn’t have to worry about lawsuits. He and Mac Archibald were
absolutely brilliant in their handling of the mediation process. You
can be proud to have these professionals available when handling the
legal aspects of your claims. I just want to thank you, BoatU.S., and
those involved with my claim — Kerry, Larry, and Mac — for treating
me so well. Harris Gottlieb

NEW! LOW RATES FOR COASTAL TRAILER BOATS
BoatU.S. Marine Insurance has changed its premiums for
coastal boats kept on trailers. If you live on the coast and use
a trailer to store or move your boat, you may qualify for lower
rates. If you aren’t currently insured with us and have a boat
under 26 feet, there’s no better time to contact us for a quote.
Here are two ways to check your rate:
n If you’ve received a quote from BoatU.S. before, call us toll-free at
1-800-283-2883 and our underwriters will re-rate your boat with
this new criterion using your original boat information.
n If you have a different boat, or haven’t contacted us for a quote
before, you may call us at the above number or apply online at
All BoatU.S. policies are subject to limits and exclusions and some
high-risk locations may not qualify. If you’re a current policyholder
and meet criteria, you’re already receiving inland rates.
GO GREEN IN SMALL WAYS
