We protect your experience on the water.

Your watercraft is more than just a boat. That's why we offer protection that's tailored to your needs at every stage of your experience.

We look for ways to say yes.

When your policy is written, you agree to the value of your boat. If it's damaged beyond repair, we'll write you a check for the agreed amount and waive the deductible.

Extra protection when you need it most.

We offer coverage for injuries you or your guests sustain onboard if you're in an accident with a boat that has limited or no insurance.

The freedom to choose.

We offer a “Select” option with new coverages and higher limits on key coverages, and a single policy option that lets you combine personal watercraft, boats, and yachts of all sizes on a single policy.

You're more than a claim, you're our client.

95% of clients with a paid claim were highly satisfied with their claims experience. * 

*Scores are for paid claims for personal lines and commercial lines combined;  surveys conducted by Chubb averaged over a 5-year period (2017-2021).

Experience the Chubb difference

Here are some of the most popular benefits and coverages Chubb has to offer:

  • Chubb looks for ways to prevent damage from happening in the first place. For example, if you need to move your vessel to safety because of an impending hurricane or tropical storm, there’s coverage for those costs.
  • They offer coverage for sinking, collision, fire, demasting, explosion, or stranding that results from causes of loss such as wear and tear, gradual deterioration, and lack of maintenance. This important coverage is often overlooked and may be excluded from standard watercraft policies.

  • Chubb offers replacement cost coverage for personal property for family members and guests aboard with no deductible.

  • They don't exclude coverage for mechanical or electrical breakdown.

  • You agree to the value of your boat when your policy is written. That way, you know how much you’ll get if a total loss occurs.

  • You can combine watercraft of all sizes onto one single policy, and Chubb will automatically cover new watercraft purchases for the first 30 days

  • Chubb provides yacht owners with services like background screenings, travel briefings, and discounted rates on security services at no additional charge.

Superior protection on and off the water

Whether you own a trawler, runabout, or a motor yacht, or you've been boating for one year or 30, Chubb offers some of the most comprehensive protection and services available.

Square Knot

Used at sea for reefing and furling sails.


Anchor Bend Knot

Used to secure a line to a ring on a buoy or anchor rode. A strong, chafe-resistant knot.


Two Half Hitches Knot
