Boat & Watercraft Insurance in Vancouver and Ridgefield, WA

Specialized Insurance for Boaters and Watersports Enthusiasts in Vancouver, WA and Sherwood, OR

For those who own and operate watercraft, watersports and on-water activities can be passions, even lifestyles.  These passions and lifestyles come with risks however, and these risks can result in significant financial losses if the risks are un-mitigated.  Boat and watercraft insurance mitigates these risks and protects against unnecessary out-of-pocket costs.  At Altech Insurance Agency we offer this insurance and have a broad and flexible boat and watercraft insurance program that provides the most comprehensive coverage for the right price.  We tailor this program to the needs of individual clients and will happily adapt the coverages in this program to you.  

Customized Coverage for your Needs

Like the many types of watercraft and the many uses for these watercraft, there are numerous factors that affect the insurance coverage that protects watercraft against exposures.  These include vehicle age and condition, geographic location, and operating history.  These and other factors will be considered in the policy-development process and as a result your insurance plan will completely reflect your needs, goals, and budget. 

At the core of any watercraft insurance policy is coverage; it’s the foundation of one’s protection.  The coverages we offer are sourced from a number of different A-rated carriers, each of which adds to the distinctiveness and breadth of our coverage collection.  This collection is diverse and contains coverages that are flexible, and as a result clients can customize their policies easily.  This customization gives policies the greatest possible value. 

The coverages from which you can choose include: 

  • Physical Damage
  • Liability
  • Medical Payments
  • Uninsured/underinsured watercraft bodily injury
  • Fuel spill liability and wreckage removal
  • Personal effectes
  • Unattached Equipment
  • Emergency Assistance
  • Towing
  • Fishing equipment
  • Accessory

You have the option of navigational area coverage, which specifies the water in which you’re protected, and you have the option of agreed value coverage (AVC), which ensures that the restoration or replacement of your vehicle or vehicles does not result in large out-of-pocket costs. 

Helping you choose the right options is an elemental part of our business.  We collaborate with you to make sure that your coverage selections are appropriate and that your policy is optimal.   We also provide ongoing support so that if and when you have questions or need help using your insurance, your questions get answered and you use your insurance in the best ways possible.  

Working with Altech Insurance

Boat and watercraft insurance policies are unique to individual policyholders, despite the fact that many coverages in these policies are general and broad and apply to most watercraft owners.  Each policy contains unique, specific coverages in addition to broad and general coverages however, and these specific coverages are part of what make policies distinguishable.  At Altech Insurance we make sure that the mix of coverages in a policy is appropriate and completely reflects the policyholder.  This way, clients stay covered.

One element of creating the right policy, aside from finding the right mix of coverage and cost, is understanding the client and the client’s circumstances.  As local agents we have an advantage in this regard; we know the demands of watercraft owners in Southwest Washington and Northwest Oregon and we know markets and laws in these areas.  We also have decades of experience insuring watercraft owners in these areas.  Our knowledge and experience enable us to deliver the best solutions and to deliver these solutions quickly and efficiently.  The value of our solutions and the manners in which we deliver these resolutions are superior to the solutions and solution deliveries of captive agents and other independent agents.  As a result, we represent the best options for watercraft owners if these owners want to insure their vehicles, themselves, and other individuals against damages. 

We insure first and foremost but we also provide services that help clients maximize the value of their insurance investments.  We help clients identify and implement best practices, which reduce exposures and decrease the possibility that exposures will result in damages.  This is how we manage risk.  We also advocate for clients and help them achieve suitable resolutions if and when claims are filed.  This is how we manage claims.
