Ladies and jet skis, summer is only a season away and, while it may be hard to imagine, your customers will be spending their days on the water in no time. If they plan to veg out on their vessels, SPF isn’t the only thing they should pack. Personalized watercraft coverage can keep your clients afloat if they find themselves in a sink-or-swim situation.
As a California-based business, The McGraw Group and its affiliated companies, which include Pacific Specialty Insurance Company, McGraw Powersports and Western Service Contract, proudly provide protection for boats from 15 feet all the way up to 26 feet in length and sailboats from 15 feet up to 36 feet in length. Pacific Specialty offers comprehensive pleasure boat insurance policies, which include optional coverage for transportation trailers, personal property and towing and assistance. This policy also includes optional physical damage, watersports liability and transport trailer coverage. More so, the service contracts offered through McGraw Powersports ensure that the watercraft’s engine, jet pump, electrical components and instruments, seals and gaskets are all protected under the manufacturer catastrophic failure coverage.
“Coupled with our generous roadside assistance options, customers don’t have to worry about being stranded on the water if they run out of gas or need a tow. The roadside assistance plan for watercraft will even cover a flat tire on their trailer when it occurs while towing their boat,” said Jason Duncan, regional sales manager for McGraw Powersports.
To further incentivize individuals, Pacific Specialty Insurance Company offers various discounts on watercraft coverage to encourage clients to bundle their policies. In addition to the multi-policy deductions, there are safety feature discounts if a vessel includes features like water breaks or idle assist. Customers can also receive discounts from being an American Watercraft Association (AWA) member or having taken the AWA safety course. And the best thing? They will even offer a six-month term on insurance if your clients plan to only use their personal watercraft(s) in the summer months. This is their consumer-friendly “pay for play” mentality, a mindset that keeps customers and their wallets happy.
“[During summer], there are a lot of people out on the water. Play it safe. Getting a watercraft policy in place is essential during busy season. As the old adage goes, better safe than sorry,” said Ted Longworth, product manager for Pacific Specialty Insurance Company.
McGraw Powersports and Pacific Specialty are proud to offer premier watersport programs so that policies and service contracts are able to meet the growing needs of customers. The process is simple. Quotes are quick. And the worries of clients are eased knowing they are getting premium, yet affordable coverage.
