Australia's largest provider of boat insurance with more than 50 years' experience.
The cost of boat insurance is called a ‘premium’. Your premium will depend on a number of factors and can change each year when you renew your policy.
There are many factors that determine how your premium is calculated, such as:
The cost of Club Marine boat insurance ranges from minimum annual premiums in the hundreds of dollars for a low value aluminium runabout, to thousands of dollars for a high value, top of the range cruiser or yacht.

Club Marine boat insurance covers accidental loss or damage to your boat, liability to other people arising from the use of the boat, and certain types of significant injury to the person named on the policy. Limits and exclusions apply. To find out more, read our Product Disclosure Statement.
This depends on national and state laws and regulations, where you use your boat, where it’s stored, whether it’s under finance and other considerations. Club Marine boat insurance provides peace of mind so you can enjoy boating. Get a quote now
This depends on your home and contents insurance policy, though it may only provide cover when your boat is stored at the home location. For example, Allianz’s home contents insurance policy with optional Accidental Damage covers non-motorised watercraft less than 3m in length, but not when being used.
Club Marine boat insurance offers peace of mind, covering your boat when it’s stored and while you’re out boating.
When you lodge a claim, we ask for the following details to complete the lodgement:

In the event of a claim, Club Marine will pay the reasonable cost of replacing the item to the same condition as it was in before the loss. So if you have a 10 year old motor your claim will cover the cost to replace it. If it is replaced with a brand new motor you may be asked to pay the difference. This is known as a contribution. We will advise you of any contribution applicable before arranging the replacement, settlement or repairs.
Adding lay up months reduces your insurance premium by 5% for each month you nominate. Lay up can be added when taking out a new policy, or renewing a policy, however you can't add it mid-policy.
Lay up refers to the months where you’re not using your boat (for example in winter), and it’s stored in an enclosed garage or shed, or behind walls, gates or fences.
During lay up you’re still covered for fire, theft and storm damage at the storage location. Lay up also covers the boat whilst being moved to / from and whilst at a dealer or service centre for normal servicing and maintenance.
If you'd like to use your boat during a lay up month, update your policy online, or call us on 1300 00 CLUB (2582) and pay any difference in premium.
With Market Value, the amount paid out may be less than what is shown on the schedule. That’s because the amount on the schedule represents a maximum payout, and what you will get is dependent on the actual value of the boat at the time of the loss, though all monetary limits may be increased for GST in some circumstances.
With Agreed Value, the amount paid out will be based on what you agree with Club Marine – but you may need to provide evidence to confirm what you are proposing is reasonable, for example, a valuation or evidence of the purchase price.
