In this report, boat, yacht and pleasure craft insurance is defined as cover for individually-owned vessels, on-board contents and associated liabilities in case of a loss event. The universe of vessels considered includes all US-registered recreational boats for personal use (apart from ‘super yachts’ or ‘mega yachts’ that are more than 80 feet in length) including sailboats, skiffs, flat-bottomed boats, jon boats, bay boats, flats boats, deck boats, pontoon boats, barges, motorboats, yachts, kayaks, canoes and personal watercraft such as jet skis. As such, it excludes all vessels owned by commercial enterprises and the public sector.
