Whenever we talk about vehicle insurance, we are talking about land, but… what about sea?
Recreational boats are also vehicles and as such can cause damage to third parties. The victims have to be serviced.
In Spain, having a recreational boat means having to insure it, and currently there are some 188,000 insurance policies of this sort, the majority for motorboats, but also jet skis and sailboats. Statistics indicate that there are 30 mishaps caused by these boats daily with an average cost of €4,000, which must be paid out of pocket if the mandatory insurance has not been hired.
As the saying goes: “When the dark north blows, stay under cover of safety “, and with good insurance.
