We cover PWCs, that’s jet skis and other similar types of craft so here’s what you get.
So that you don’t pay for extras you don’t need we have three levels of cover. In a nut shell the cover is summarised as so. Bronze cover - third party only for your liabilities. Silver cover - Bronze cover plus fire, lightning, explosion, theft, malicious damage or vandalism, weather events and freezing of machinery and Gold cover - Silver cover plus loss or damage caused by accidental means. We do not cover stand up jet skis under any circumstances. You can check out our table of cover for a visual comparison.
All of our three policies include public liability cover, in case you damage or injure other people or their property. If you were travelling to quickly in a congested area and were to crash into a jetty, public liability cover insures you up to £3 million for the repair of said jetty. This won’t extend to repairs on your jet ski but never fear, our Gold level insurance includes accidental damage cover too.
At your storage location and while in transit, Silver and Gold policies cover theft provided you take some simple precautions. We recommend storing your jet ski in a locked building but can sometimes cover alternative locations if you ask us. Importantly, we will not cover for jet skis stolen whilst afloat and unattended so be cautious. In transit we ask for a wheel clamp or hitch lock to be fitted to the trailer when unattended but if theft still occurs and you’ve included both on your policy, we will reimburse you for your trailer and jet ski too.
It’s not a nice thought but you can be sure we will cover death or injury to you, or your family if something should happen. We do ask that you wear a kill cord at all times, this is essential for your safety but also to keep your insurance valid. This is optional on our Silver and Gold policies and can be added for just £5.

Quick to learn and easy to use, getting to grips with jet skiing can be thrilling and as with any exhilarating sport, they need to be handled with care, so whatever your level, jet ski insurance is recommended. This shouldn’t put you off though as, used sensibly, jet skis are a lot of fun.

We either require a hitch lock or a wheel clamp to be fitted to a trailer if it is left unattended while towing your jet ski. We also ask that a hardened steal chain is fitted to the Jet Ski at all times to keep it secured to the trailer. If you would like to insure the trailer itself you can do so, just add the value of the trailer to your total sum insured.
We can insure those under the age of 18 on our Jet Ski policy but there are some stipulations. Those aged between 14 and 21 must be named on the policy as an additional driver and have a RYA JET SKI course qualification.
Please call us if you wish to insure anyone with in this age group, to make sure we have all details.
Provided you have no more than 2 people being towed at a time, we can cover a number of different water toys and types of water skier; you just need to let us know to add the cover for you. We cannot cover toys such as banana boats and air chairs for towing and we generally exclude more than 2 people to be towed at any one time.
We do not cover jet skis that are used for racing, it’s a risky business so be careful.
