You can work with a local independent insurance agent to find appropriate business insurance coverage that is designed for personal watercraft dealers. The right agent can find individual and packaged personal watercraft dealer insurance policies that will address the various forms of property and liability risks that are unique to your business.

  • Business interruption coverage: Provides coverage for lost income and expenses if you must temporarily cease operations after a catastrophic event. It pays employee salaries, rent, and other expenses while you are closed to make repairs.
