Some of our coverages
Sign & Glide® on-water towing†
If you run out of gas or your boat breaks down on the water, Progressive’s optional Sign & Glide coverage pays for on-water towing, fuel delivery,** soft ungroundings, and jump starts. We even arrange for the tow and pay the tow operator directly (in most cases). Simply download our Sign & Glide app on your smart phone and you’ll never worry about an on-water breakdown. More on Sign & Glide.
Example: You run out of gas in the middle of a lake. If you added this protection, just call our dispatch center (number included on your policy card) or contact us through the Sign & Glide app. We’ll then deliver fuel and/or tow you to the nearest shore.
Full replacement cost
When your watercraft needs to be repaired, we always bring your boat back to its previous condition or better, and never depreciate the value of any of your parts.
Example: Four seats are damaged on your 10 year-old boat. They’re older and only worth $50 each, so some insurers may only give you $200 ($50 per seat). But, you need new ones that cost $250 each. We’ll pay the full $1,000 for all new seats. That’s an $800 difference!
Add Propulsion Plus and we repair or replace the lower unit of an outboard motor, or upper and lower units of an inboard/outboard motor, if you have a mechanical breakdown—even if it’s caused by wear and tear. Propulsion Plus is optional and starts at just $38/ per year. Compare that to the thousands you could pay out of pocket to fix it on your own.
Example: Your lower unit is 10 years old and simply runs its course and dies on you. Typically, normal wear and tear wouldn’t be covered by insurance. But if you add Propulsion Plus coverage, we pay to repair or replace your lower unit.
Wreckage removal & fuel spill
Wreckage removal and fuel spill coverages are automatically included in every Progressive boat insurance policy. If your boat sinks or you’re responsible for a fuel spill, we cover the bills all the way up to your policy’s property damage liability limits. We only remove your sunken boat if it’s legally required.
Example: Your old boat sinks while docked. The Coast Guard may require you to remove the wreckage and address any fuel spills. Just contact us to file the claim, and we cover the costs.
