Hagerty Classic Marine Insurance

Agreed Value Coverage
You'll receive every dime of what you insured your craft for in the event of a total loss. Unlike Hagerty, many insurance programs only pay "up to" the value, so you only receive a pro-rated payment.

Boats Under Restoration
Whether you’re restoring the craft yourself or using a professional facility, make sure you’re covered in case of fire or theft with a Port Risk policy that can be incrementally increased as the project progresses.

New Wooden Boats
We proudly support the new wooden boat industry and feel the “one-off” wooden boats built today by meticulous artisans and high-quality reproductions of classic wooden boat designs carry on the industry’s legacy.

Fast, Easy Claims Service
Hagerty administrates most claims in our home office, so you get personal and direct customer service. We also work with the repair shop of your choice.

Flexible Usage
Like you, we know and love classic boats, and that means getting them in the water. We offer coverage for unlimited navigation and overland transportation within the United States and Canada. And Hagerty doesn’t require a mandatory winter lay-up period.

Customer Service
Our customer service team is here to offer fast, friendly and knowledgeable assistance when you need it.

Overseas Transit
Transporting a boat overseas? Hagerty offers customers a specialty product that provides insurance protection while the vessel is in transit.

Heritage Marine Insurance

We know what questions to ask because we understand boats and boating. We own them, we restore them, we cruise them and we fish them.

We offer coverage for wood and fiberglass hulls of all ages. If you are restoring your vessel, we can offer insurance ashore during the restoration period.
