I'm on a Boat - 2013 Boat Insurance Upgrades

Apr 11, 2013 10:24:00 AM

i'm on a boatSome may describe the boating season in Alberta as short... This is especially true when your coming off of 6 months of winter, like most of us are seeing this year. For boat enthuthiasts though, the saying "absense makes the heart grow fonder" rings true.

If you're chomping at the bit to get your boat out of storage and back on the water, you'll be happy to see that over the winter some of our watercraft insurance providers have been hard at work making sure that, when you do hit the boat launch, you'll be protected, better than ever. 

Premier Marine, Canada's largest supplier of quality Marine Insurance products has made the following improvements this year, based on feedback from their customers and brokers.
