In addition to the pure enjoyment it brings, a boat also requires constant attention. That’s why the smartest move is to get boat insurance and sleep soundly after you’ve planned your next sail
If you’ve ever sailed, you know that nothing beats the feeling of the sun shining on your face while your boat leaves a trail of frothy waves behind. However, as owners of boats, regardless of the size, engine or sails will tell you, owning a boat is a mixed blessing. In addition to the pure enjoyment it brings, a boat also requires constant attention, regardless of whether you’re at sea or at berth or whether it’s a sunny summer day or a rainy autumn night. Taking care of the boat doesn’t stop when you reach the port and moor.
Storms, rain, wind or fire are unfortunately omnipresent threats when it comes to boats. That’s why the smartest move is to get boat insurance and sleep soundly after you’ve planned your next sail. Croatia osiguranje has taken care of this with its Comprehensive boat and yacht insurance (known in Croatia as CASCO, named after its equivalent from the automotive industry) that will protect you against financial losses resulting from damage or loss of your boat in the event of an accident, theft or severe weather. The CASCO boat insurance policy covers maritime accidents, such as collision, impact, stranding, foundering and other extraordinary and unpredictable external events that you may face while sailing.
The insurance policy also covers damages sustained from severe weather such as hail, tidal wave, lightning or thunder strike, earthquake, fire and explosion. In short, taking out CASCO boat insurance means that your boat is protected in all instances that might cause damage to you or to others. One of the advantages that taking out insurance gets you is the Dobra prilika program that will get you a HRK 400 discount on fuel and 10% off on assistance at sea for personal watercraft. Get your insurance, because sailing is necessary.
All details on the basic coverage and additional options are available at Croatia osiguranje’s website www.crosig.hr, where you can also request a quote and get a 30% seasonal discount on the abovementioned insurance and all additional options if you take out a policy by 30 September. As a market and digital leader, Croatia osiguranje encourages and develops the digitalisation of business models, so special benefits are used to support the use of contemporary digital solutions such as sensors for preventing or reducing damage sustained by fire, theft or foundering. If your boat features two or more sensors, such as the ones by Sense4boat or another manufacturer, you qualify for an additional 20% off!
