What is boat insurance for fleets?

Regardless of whether on water or land, as a boat owner, you're responsible if there's a claim. As well as liability insurance which is mandatory for certain boat categories in Switzerland, you can insure your watercraft with partial or comprehensive accidental damage and accident insurance.

  • Boat insurance for fleets: You insure all your watercraft in one single contract.
  • Boat insurance: You take out a separate contract for each of your watercraft.
