PERSONAL WATERCRAFT COVERAGE

Personal Watercraft Coverage (PWC)

PWC stands for “personal watercraft,” which is a small stand-up or sit-down craft, also called a water scooter. PWC insurance protects your investment in your personal watercraft if it is damaged or destroyed in an accident or theft. It also protects you against liability claims in the event that you cause harm to another person or their property.
