Yacht Insurance

Finding the perfect coverage has never been easier.

yacht insurance coverage

Insurance doesn’t have to be boring. That’s why we hired Sara East to be our BA insurance writer. Maggie specializes in making mundane subjects hella-entertaining.

Yacht Insurance

Yachts are a luxurious way to be on the water, but owning a yacht means having the right insurance in the event of damage or being destroyed. Because of their price, repair or replacement is likely to be very expensive making the proper coverage crucial for boat owners.

Before using your yacht, an independent agent can work with you to create a customized yacht insurance policy to your specific watercraft, its value, and how you use it. 

Boating Statistics

No one likes to think about the dangers of boating, but accidents can happen and it's best to be prepared in the event that you face unexpected hardship. Whether you hit another boater, have an incident with a passenger, or your boat is damaged while being transported or docked, lots of things can lead to a financial headache for you.

Here are some statistics about boating accidents.

  • Cabin motorboats, which include yachts, accounted for 14% of all boating accidents
  • Only about 20% of all boaters who drowned were on vessels larger than 21 feet
  • Operator inattention was cited as the leading cause of accidents involving cabin motorboats

What Is Yacht Insurance and What Does It Cover?

Yacht insurance is a specialized type of boat insurance for luxury boats. Yachts can be used for personal as well as commercial use, so insurance policies must be created to accommodate each of those needs. 

While yachts, like most boats, depreciate over time, they still generally have a much higher than average value. Because of their high values, a standard boat insurance policy may not provide enough coverage for your vessel.

The components of yacht insurance are similar to standard boat insurance coverage.

  • Bodily injury and property damage liability: Covers the costs associated with injuries or property damage you cause to another person, as well as legal fees. If the liability limits in your yacht insurance policy are not adequate to protect your assets from a lawsuit, you may want to consider buying an umbrella liability policy , which provides a much higher liability limit.
  • Collision coverage: Pays for damage to your boat after a collision with another boat or object.
  • Comprehensive coverage: Covers non-collision damage or loss, including theft, fire, vandalism, or damage caused by an object other than another boat.

Additional yacht insurance options to consider

  • Uninsured/underinsured boaters insurance:  Covers any damage or injuries from an accident with an uninsured or underinsured boater. Since boat insurance is rarely required by law, if you have a significant amount invested in a vessel, this is a good insurance option to discuss with your agent. 
  • Medical payments coverage: Covers medical expenses and funeral expenses for anyone on that is injured, entering, leaving or while on your boat.
  • Equipment and personal effects coverage: Pay to repair or replace damaged or lost items such as gear, fishing equipment, cameras, and other personal belongings.

An independent agent can work with you to determine the appropriate coverage for your needs. Because these agents work with multiple insurance companies, they can help protect all of your interests with a broad range of insurance coverage, all from one agency office.

Is Yacht Insurance Different from Standard Boat Insurance?

Yacht insurance provides similar types of coverage as standard boat insurance . However, yachts have some specific differences from standard boats, and yacht owners generally need certain protection that regular boat insurance does not provide.

For example, a yacht policy tends to restrict hauling on a trailer to only a few hundred miles, while boat insurance tends to provide coverage for trailering over longer distances. 

Also, deductibles for yacht policies are very flexible, instead of having set amounts like $250, $500 or $1,000. In addition, yacht policies can include coverage for raising and removing a sunken yacht, while boat policies generally do not include this coverage.

Is Yacht Insurance Required?

Yacht insurance is not typically required by state law. However, sailboats often do have insurance requirements. So, if you have a sailing yacht, insurance may be required by law. 

Yacht club membership statistics

Yacht Club Insurance

You will also need to buy insurance to protect your investment in your vessel if you finance the purchase of your yacht through a lender.

Many marinas require that you have insurance in order to slip your boat at the marina. Check your local marina's guidelines, and be sure to learn about your state’s laws and regulations. 

Do I Need Yacht Insurance?

A yacht can range in price from $300,000 to several million dollars. Purchasing one is a big investment and having the ability to insure your investment can ease your mind if there's an accident or your yacht needs repairs or replacement.

Insuring your yacht is also not just about the boat. In the event that an injured party files a liability claim against you, you will want to have enough coverage in place to protect your boat, home, savings, investments, and future income.

Assessing your financial situation will help you to determine how much yacht insurance you need.

What Is Yacht Insurance?

Yacht insurance is an insurance policy that provides indemnity liability coverage for a sailing vessel. It includes liability coverage for bodily injury or damage to the property of others and damage to personal property on the vessel. Depending on the insurance provider, this insurance could also include gas delivery, towing, and assistance if your yacht gets stranded.

Key Takeaways

  • Yacht insurance provides indemnity liability coverage for a sailing vessel.
  • It has two principal parts: hull insurance and protection and indemnity (P&I) insurance.
  • While there is no legal agreed upon length that separates a yacht from a pleasure boat, generally it is considered to be somewhere between 27 and 30 feet.

Understanding Yacht Insurance

Some companies specialize in providing coverage for antique and classic boats. You can choose between an actual cash value or agreed value policy. The former is cheaper but factors in depreciation and market value, so your payout will be less. Some policies include discounts based on your boating education, safety features, and whether you have a hybrid or electric boat. Some companies also offer a package deal that decreases the rate on a yacht insurance policy if you purchase additional policies, such as for your home or car.

Boats are defined as vessels under 197 feet long, while ships are 197 feet long or longer. There is no agreed upon length for a yacht , but they are generally considered to be at least 30 feet long. A vessel under 27 feet is considered a pleasure boat.  

Although there isn't a standard definition of what the size of a yacht is, we can see that there is a general agreement within a range. With that being said, this general range falls within class 2 and class 3 of the Federal boat classification system.

For its own purposes, the National Boat Owners Association marks the dividing line at 27 feet. Most yacht coverage is broader and more specialized than pleasure boat coverage, because larger vessels travel farther and are exposed to greater risks.

Yacht insurance is broader and more specialized than pleasure boat coverage, due to the fact that a yacht can sail farther and thus runs greater risks.

A yacht insurance deductible, the amount of money you must pay out of your own pocket before your insurance kicks in, is usually a percentage of the insured value. A 1% deductible, for example, means that a boat insured for $100,000 would have a $1,000 deductible. Most lenders allow a maximum deductible of 2% of the insured value.

Generally, yacht insurance coverage does not include wear and tear, gradual deterioration, marine life, marring, denting, scratching, animal damage, osmosis, blistering, electrolysis, manufacturer’s defects, defects in design, and ice and freezing.

Two Parts of Yacht Insurance

There are two principal sections of a yacht insurance policy.

Hull insurance

Hull insurance is an all-risk, direct damage coverage that includes an agreed amount of hull coverage. That amount is settled on when the policy is written, and in the case of a total loss it will be paid out in full. In addition, there is replacement cost coverage on partial losses, though sails, canvas, batteries, outboards, and sometimes outdrives are not include and instead are subject to depreciation.

Protection and indemnity (P&I)

Protection and indemnity (P&I) insurance is the broadest of all liability coverages, and because maritime law is particular, you will need coverages that are designed for those exposures. Longshore and harbor workers’ coverage and Jones Act coverage (for the yacht’s crew) are included and important, because your losses in these areas could run into six figures. P&I will cover any judgements against you and also pays for your defense in admiralty courts .

Yacht Insurance: The Definitive Owner’s Guide

yacht insurance coverage

A sailing vessel’s indemnification liability coverage is provided through yacht insurance, and it covers any damage to the yacht’s body, property destruction of others, and private property damage aboard the vessel. This insurance may also cover gas supply, towing, and help if your boat gets stuck, depending on the insurance company.

Understanding The Two Parts of Yacht Insurance

Hull insurance.

Hull insurance is a direct and all-risk insurance policy that covers damage and includes an agreed amount of hull insurance. The amount settlement is done when the policy is drawn up, and the payment is in full in the event of a total loss. In addition, there’s the possibility of replacement costs insurance for partial losses. Still, sails, batteries, canvas outboards, and sometimes outdrives aren’t covered and are instead at risk of depreciation.

Indemnity and protection (P&I)

Protection and indemnity (P&I) insurance provides the most comprehensive insurance coverages for liability. Because maritime law is unique, you must have coverages specifically designed to protect you from risk-taking situations. P&I will cover any judgments against you and pay to defend you in admiralty courts.

What are the factors that can influence your yacht insurance?

Insurers consider many factors when deciding whether to offer a policy.

Almost any vessel can be insured – for a price. You should consider the following to make sure the policy you buy meets your needs:

  • Age of the vessel
  • Value (make sure you consider depreciation over the years of the value of your yacht)
  • Speed/Power
  • Type of vessel (Sailing, motor, Inboard, Outboard, utility, cruiser, offshore fishing boat)
  • Custom built (boats without serial numbers can be tricky to insure)
  • Location of use (which ocean are you planning to locate your boat. Make sure you let your insurance know whenever this changes over the months!)

What does yacht insurance usually cover?

yacht insurance coverage

Usually, the yacht insurance covers:

Liability protection: the bare minimum insurance

Property damage liability pays for damage to another person’s property caused by the accident you commit. You are covered if your yacht causes damage to individuals or damages other ships, docks, or buildings. Remember that harm or damage might occur due to direct contact with your boat or events induced by your yacht, such as during heavy wakes. In most cases, boat liability insurance covers you against covered claims and litigation involving settlements and legal expenses. To ensure that you have the right coverage, talk to your advisor regarding your needs and potential dangers.

Hull and machinery coverage

Hull insurance will cover any physical injury to your boat, including motors, trailers and equipment, and even accessories in many instances. Damage from wind and fire are typical claim types.

Uninsured boater coverage

Indemnifies bodily injured passengers of the insured watercraft who suffer injuries due to the uninsured owner of a different vessel.

Search and rescue

The maximum amount is $10,000 for costs that an insured incurs to a government entity like the United States Coast Guard (USCG), which provides emergency assistance and is covered at absolutely no cost.

Marine environmental damage and pollution coverage

This protection is available up to $10,000 in penalties and fines in the event of marine environmental damage as per the policy’s conditions. This coverage is added to the insurance company’s liability and OPA limit.

Agreed value coverage or actual cash value coverage

A cash value policy offers lower coverage than an agreed value insurance policy, however, generally with a lower cost. ACV policies provide coverage up to the value of the vessel. ACV policy would protect up to the price of the market for the boat if there was a complete loss, including depreciation and conditions of the vessel when it suffered the loss.

Crew medical and personal coverage

Reasonable medical and related costs are covered for all onboard passengers leaving or boarding the vessel. These benefits are granted per person instead of per event.

If your vessel gets damaged by accident, collision insurance is an optional insurance policy that covers the cost of fixing and replacing the damaged part with less deductible.

Sinking and wreck removal

Insurance for boats generally can cover sinking. However, there are some critical policy limitations. In general, insurance for boats should protect your boat if it sinks due to any covered risk. The policy could reimburse you for the cost of salvage or removal.

What is usually excluded from yacht insurance policies or comes as an extra?

yacht insurance coverage

War coverage

Damages caused by acts of war can turn out to be too great to insure, making the repayment too astronomical to be true.

Hurricane insurance

Your boat insurance provider may be able to pay for damages to your vessel caused by wind and hail from a storm in the event of a hurricane unless stated explicitly in the policy. Contact your boat insurance provider to find out what coverage you have during a storm.

Marine life encounters

Most insurance for boats doesn’t provide coverage for marine-related damage such as sharks, whales, and many other species. If you frequently sail in water full of marine creatures, it is possible to discuss a supplemental insurance policy with your insurance provider.

Insects and mold

The majority of yacht insurance policies do not cover insects and mold. It is essential to take the necessary steps to safeguard yourself against any pests on your vessel. So, this means that you must wash, drain, and dry your boat’s equipment after use.

Toys and PWC onboard

The PWC onboard may need to have a separate insurance policy as it is an expensive purchase.

Negligence or criminal acts

No insurance company is accountable for paying for the illegal actions of other people. Damage or loss due to reckless negligence and incompetence is also not acceptable.

Most insurance coverage for boats won’t cover certain events, such as racing on a yacht. Suppose you plan to use your boat to compete. In that case, you might want to consult your insurance representative about supplemental insurance, precisely the possibility of additional liability insurance if there’s a crash in the course.

Kidnapping and ransom

Because of the high stakes involved – human life and assets such as vessels and cargo — as well as the criminal character and challenging legal context, resolving a hijacking or abduction for ransom is a difficult task. Hence, kidnapping and ransom are not included in yacht insurance.

What do you need to know before picking a yacht insurance policy?

When evaluating physical damage cover, the most significant question is whether the insurance is focused on “agreed value” or “actual cash value” damage payout. If there is a complete loss, most agreed value coverage covers the amount shown on the insurance contract. After depreciation, you will receive compensation.

The actual cash value coverage offers protection up to the vessel’s present market worth at the moment of complete loss, after depreciation and the deductibles.

Although the coverage is smaller in an actual cash value insurance than in agreed value insurance, the policy is generally inexpensive.

The next thing you want to consider while choosing your insurance is the deductible and premium.

The amount you self-insure in the case of a loss is your yacht insurance deductibles. Put another way, it is the amount you spend on claims before your insurance comes in.

The next is premium. Choose insurance that can fit your budget to pay your premium on time without fail. 

Another thing to consider is the Intended cruising area. Some policies put restrictions or have a defined area while cruising. So, choose an insurance policy that suits your cruising area so that in case of mishaps, you can get coverage.

Yacht Insurance Requirements

yacht insurance coverage

Is yacht insurance mandatory?

While it’s not usually a legal necessity, it is always a good idea. It’s unlikely to cost much, but it might save you a lot of money in a disaster. Even if you or your captain are the finest sailor on the planet, you must consider what would happen if someone else collides with your yacht.

Changing weather may damage your boat, yet you usually have little control over it. Fortunately, most yacht insurance policies aren’t too costly, and the modest additional cost may provide comfort while cruising on the sea.

Does the bank require insurance while you finance the yacht?

Yes, your bank may require proof of yacht insurance if you want to finance the yacht.

Do ports and marinas need your yacht insurance?

For utilizing their facilities, numerous ports and marinas will need you to have boat insurance.

Does renting the yacht require insurance?

If you intend to rent out your yacht, you must have coverage to safeguard your asset, and yacht insurance can be highly beneficial. If you want to rent your yacht, you must get boat insurance to protect yourself from liability hazards, and the insurance covers the majority of liability concerns.

How much does a yacht insurance cost?

yacht insurance coverage

Usually, yacht insurance costs between 1% and 5% percent of the yacht’s value. For instance, you may spend around $2,500 annually to insure a boat worth $100,000.

However, similar to other types of insurance, the cost of your boat insurance depends on you and your vessel. The higher the value of a boat, the greater the insurance cost. Yacht insurance is often costlier than floating insurance since yachts are more expensive. High-powered boats are riskier. Thus, insurance companies consider the kind of engine (inboard or outboard, amount of horsepower, and so on).

How can I lower my yacht insurance cost?

yacht insurance coverage

Here are a few steps that you can take to lower your insurance cost.

Limit the cruising area of your yacht

There are navigational restrictions in marine rules, meaning you may only sail inside a specified region. The premiums will be less the smaller and securer the area is.

Have good training and driving records

Insurance companies are interested in your expertise on the water. The completion of a boating course demonstrates proficiency, which reduces your risk. Most insurance companies would consider boating lessons, but they may even provide a rate reduction. Contact your agent to determine whether safety-related boating classes impact your premium rates.

Lower the liability limits

Most insurance companies will require your credit score to establish suitable premiums. Maintaining a good credit score has several advantages, including cheaper insurance prices. To lower your liability limits, consider working on your credit score.

Pick a higher deductible to reduce the premium of your insurance

A greater deductible implies that the policyholder will be responsible for a percentage of the claim, hence decreasing the occurrence of claims. You choose to pay a part of the claim by raising your deductibles out of your cash, and the company will eagerly reduce your premium.

Choose seasonal insurance during the offseason

Fire, theft, vandalism, and winter storms can all cause significant damage and financial burden. You won’t be insured for any winter tragedy that strikes your yacht during the off-season if you don’t have insurance. You’ll be responsible for possibly astronomical expenditures.

Pick a modern boat rather than an old one

A new yacht will cost less to insure than an older one. This is because older ones are susceptible to acquiring defects, while newer ones are not. Further, you can take several steps to improve your yacht’s safety, contributing to lowering your cost. Like, installing an autonomous fire control system may decrease the danger of fire damage and make you eligible for a premium reduction. Additionally, safety devices like radar, depth finders, first aid kits, GPS, emergency kits, and EPIRBs may reduce the danger.

Our advice to find the best insurance broker at the best cost for a yacht

yacht insurance coverage

Avoid using your home and car insurer for yachts above 27”.

Usually, boat insurance is meant for vessels less than 26 feet long. Yachts are generally longer than 27 feet, have far more powerful engines, and cost more than smaller vessels.

Yachts typically go greater distances and deeper seas, transport more passengers, need a crew and have several equipment and personal possessions. These variables result in distinct risk exposures and need particular insurance policies, coverage choices, and deductibles.

Maritime law governs rather than state or federal law in deeper seas, which may be more complex. If your boat has a crew, you might be obliged to have Harbor workers and Longshoreman’s covers.

Partnering with an advisor who knows the worth of your boat and how you intend to use your boat can assist you in getting the necessary coverage for any potential catastrophes. You will also need specific insurance coverage if you own a high-performance boat due to the increased risk.

Pick a trustable company with expertise in marine insurance

You can choose your regular insurance provider to get your marine insurance. There are several maritime governing rules when you decide to sail on the sea or plan to sail overseas. Additionally, it is essential to engage with a provider that has a deep understanding of boat and yacht coverage. This is vital at the time of insurance application and in the severe case of a claim.

Special needs might require custom policies

If you have any special needs, additional coverage choices are available for medical costs, private possessions, the boat’s transportation equipment, and more that may be added to any plan. However, that relies on the type of insurance provider you choose.

Optional coverage extensions:

  • Trip disruption
  • Private property
  • Trailer Coverage
  • Towing and Emergency Roadside Service
  • Uninsured Watercraft
  • Individual Liability

Get an experienced yacht broker to help you navigate policies.

You may have 100 policies in front of you and many lucrative offers claiming several things. Yet, making the right insurance takes time and a better understanding of all the coverage. So, an experienced broker can help you navigate all these policies and select one that fits your budget and particular situation.

The best companies for yacht insurance

Many insurance firms provide boat insurance at affordable prices. Shop around to ensure that you receive the necessary information to make an educated selection. Also, there are several websites that offer evaluations of various insurance providers and are excellent starting points for your study.

Communicate with other sailors; determine which aspects they value and why. You would be in a position to make the most excellent option for your requirements when you analyze the services of various companies.

Being on the ocean is a feeling of serenity, tranquility, and impending new experiences. So, this is an encounter you want to go on forever. Further, your sailing boat is a significant investment. Hence, consider having your luxury boat insured to cherish the best of life and keep your investment safe.

our yacht insurance usually protects your yacht against frequent dangers such as drowning, storm, fire, collisions, and theft. You may also be protected by boat insurance if you accidentally harm somebody or destroy their property. Your coverage may cover the following boat components: machinery, attached equipment, hull.

The exclusions from yacht insurance policies include: criminal actions of others, insect infestations, lack of due diligence on the part of the assured or managers, common wear and tear, loss resulting from delay, and intentional wrongdoing by the captain or crew.

The typical cost of boat coverage is between $200 and $500 per year. However, insurance may cost between 1 and 5 percent of the boat’s worth for a yacht or sailboat. For instance, you may spend around $2,500 annually to insure a boat worth $100,000.

Sailboat owners often spend between $250 and $1,500 annually to protect their yachts. This price varies depending on various criteria, including insurance type and insurance amounts, and sailboats usually are less costly to cover than powerboats.

Annual insurance on the yacht will range at roughly 1.5 percent of the boat’s value. The cost to insure a catamaran depends on hull valuation, location, and the boat’s operation.

The insurance coverage of a mega yacht or a super yacht can be around $240,000.

To reduce the cost of yacht insurance, you can take the following steps: installing safety equipment, demonstrating better boat riding skills by undertaking a boating course, considering your deductibles, limiting your sailing area or working on credit scores.

Hull relates to the vessel’s body. The insurance will cover unexpected damage or loss to the boat anywhere inside the policy’s specified maritime boundaries.

Usually, classic boat insurance is provided by specialized insurance firms who specialize or have experience in protecting classic and antique vessels. For covering your old boat, get a quotation from a specialized insurer and verify that your policy provides the protection you want for a sense of security.

The Differences between Boat & Yacht Insurance

When you look at a boat insurance policy, you'll notice the language is unlike your typical homeowner's or auto policy. What you may not know is that vessel insurance can even vary from policy to policy, depending on a variety of factors.

Yachts are classified as vessels 27 feet or more in length, while boats are 26 feet or less. No matter what type of vessel you have, when it comes to the type of policy, seek out Agreed Value. Agreed Value policies are cover all damages, except for sails, outboard motors, canvas covers, cushions or other specified items. They do not reflect depreciation or market value, which means you will get a greater settlement in the event of a claim. Other policies such as Actual Cash Value may be cheaper, but they also factor in depreciation and market value and will subtract that from your payout.

Also, when it comes to navigation limit, boat and yacht insurance policies can vary due to different exposures. For example, a boat policy typically includes unlimited overland transportation on a trailer, while a larger yacht policy would restrict overland trailering to only several hundred miles.

Deductible amounts can also differ. A yacht policy can offer deductibles of up to 3 percent for any hull damage. However, deductibles for a total loss, marine electronics loss or a windstorm loss can vary depending on your particular policy. By contrast, a boat policy offers a flat deductible, typically of $250, $500 or $1,000.

Because yachts inherently incur more risk due to their size and navigation, the liability feature of yacht insurance provides broad coverage designed to shield you from the effects of the maritime law. Your coverage is much broader than with a typical watercraft liability policy, and offers protection to permissive users, captain and crew liabilities, along with the Jones Act, a federal law that allows a seaman who gets injured on the job to bring a suit for damages against his or her employer.

Besides, yacht insurance addresses salvage to a damaged yacht, legal liability to remove a sunken wreck and uninsured boater coverages. In a typical boat policy, only general liability protection is included. For example, if your boat sinks in the Great Lakes or any of its tributaries, the U.S. Coast Guard says it must be raised. There will be salvage costs, fuel clean-up - and you'll have to pay the bill regardless of your coverage.

While most yacht policies provide salvage coverage, they do so in different ways. Some choose to limit the dollar coverage to a stated amount or percentage of the hull amount.

Another very important part of the salvage issue is wreck removal. Some companies include wreck removal under their hull coverage, which then limits its value. A true yacht policy will include it under the protection and indemnity limit, which will provide much higher limits and additional coverage.

Get Your Insurance Quote

Another difference is that in yacht policies, your legal defense is in addition to protection and indemnity limits, while boat policies offer legal defense within the limit of liability.

Yacht policies have warranties, including the seaworthiness, navigation limits territories and navigation lay-up limits. While some boat policies do not require warranties, others may incorporate them.

Many boaters consider adding their vessels to their homeowner's insurance in an attempt to reduce their costs. Although the cost is substantially less when you add a boat to a homeowner's policy, but you don't get near the coverage. In this case, the old adage still holds true - you get what you pay for. The bottom line is not the amount of your policy premium, but how much you will collect at the time of loss.

Boat Insurance Guide

Boat Insurance Guide: Costs & Coverage

When it comes to insuring your boat, it’s often best to separate your boat insurance from your homeowner's policy. Many homeowners’ policies limit or don’t cover marine-specific risks, such as salvage work, wreck removal, pollution or environmental damage; but there are exceptions.

Types of Boat Insurance

  • Boat Insurance Costs
  • Boat Insurance FAQs

Insurance Factors

Insurers consider many factors when deciding whether or not to offer a policy. Almost any vessel can be insured— for a price. You want to consider the following to make sure the policy you purchase meets your needs:

  • Age of Boat
  • Speed/Horsepower
  • Condition (Does it meet US Coast Guard Standards in effect at the time it was built?)
  • Primary residence (If the boat is used as a primary residence)
  • Type (Inboard, Outboard, utility, cruiser, bassboat, saltwater fishing boat, performance boat)
  • Homemade (Boats without a serial number are tricky but many kits are okay)
  • Houseboats with no motor
  • Ownership (more than 2 owners)
  • Where it will operate (Ocean, lakes, bays, rivers, Great Lakes)

There are two basic types of boat insurance— “agreed value” and “actual cash value.” How depreciation is handled is what sets them apart.

An "agreed value" policy covers the boat based on its value when the policy was written. While it can cost more up front, there is no depreciation for a total loss of the boat (some partial losses may be depreciated).

"Actual cash value" policies cost less up front, but factor in depreciation. In other word, the policy will only pay up to the actual cash value of the boat at the time it is declared a total or partial loss. Eventually, as your boat ages, your insurer will likely insist on an actual cash value policy—and if often gives a substantial savings.

Kinds of Boat Insurance Policies

boat insurance costs

  • Personal Watercraft ( PWC )
  • Yacht  - generally, vessels 26' and smaller are called "boats,” and "yachts" are 27' and larger. Yacht coverage tends to be broader and more specialized because larger boats travel farther and have more unique exposures.
  • Boat & PWC Rental  - Although this is generally not required, rental insurance will help cover any damage the vessel, as well as the operator and passengers.
  • Boat Clubs  - covers all members of club while operating a boat.
  • Professional (ProAngler, Fishing Guides & Charters)  - These policies are very customizable and can cover items like travel to a tournament, equipment and more.

What Boat Insurance Policies Cover

How and where you boat determines the type of coverage you need. An "all risk" policy will offer the best protection. However, an “all risk” policy does not cover every type of loss. In insurance terms “all risk” just means that any risk not specifically omitted in the policy is covered. Typical exclusions include wear and tear, marring, denting, animal damage, manufacturers’ defects, design defects, ice and freezing.

You may also be able to add extra coverage. Available options may include: medical payments, personal effects, uninsured boaters liability, and towing and assistance. Most policies will cover permanently attached equipment, as well as items like anchors, oars, trolling motors, tools, seat cushions, and life jackets. Be sure to discuss these options with your agent.

Types of Boat Insurance Coverage

This will depend on the type of policy, but common coverage add-ons (in addition to basic ones above) include:

  • Specialized Coverage:  Coverage for something specific on your boat like an expensive prop or navigation equipment.
  • Salvage:  Coverage that pays to remove your boat due to damage, from substantial to minor.
  • Consequential Damage: Covers a loss that was the result wear and tear rather than an accident (rot, mold, corrosion).
  • Towing: Towing your boat across a body of water to safety can cost $400 per hour.
  • Cruising Extension: You can get temporary, additional coverage if you plan on leaving the USA (typically to Mexico or the Bahamas).

Insurance Claims

Hopefully, you will never need to make a claim but if you do, it’s good to be prepared. You are not required to carry proof of insurance on your boat, but it’s a good idea keep claim information handy for an emergency. Ask how the claim process works when you’re shopping for policies. Naturally, it should be quick and easy. In addition, find out if your agent (or other representative) will be available if you need help dealing with the aftermath of a claim, such as arranging for towing or salvage, rather than just cutting a check and leaving.

Shopping for Boat Insurance

Start with a little fact-finding. Ask your boating friends which company they use and how their claims have been handled. The way an insurer has handled claims in the past is a good indicator of the quality of service you can expect in the future.

State insurance regulatory agencies are also a good reference and can be found online.

Boat Insurance Cost Factors

types of boat insurance

  • Cruising Area: Where you boat.
  • Boating Safety Education: If you have been formally trained or certified.
  • Good Driving Records: Both boating and driving.
  • Liability Limits: The higher the limit the higher the cost.
  • Deductible: The higher the deductible the lower the premium.
  • Towing insurance requirements for offshore fishing (for example, a 20-mile tow could cost $3,000).

If you boat in a hurricane zone, your insurer may expect you to provide a hurricane plan. If a storm approaches, will you have it stored in a hurricane-proof facility or will you tow it or skipper it to a safer harbor. The answer can affect your rates, even lower them, but be prepared to follow the plan, because your coverage may hinge on it.

Insurance Discounts

There are a few ways to reduce your boat insurance costs. For example, if your boating is restricted by seasons and your boat is in storage during the winter, you can get deductions for winter layup. Many insurers offer discounts for good driving records and for anyone who has completed boater education classes. Finally, it usually costs less to be insured in fresh water versus salt, so be sure to discuss where you boat with your agent. You may earn extra savings by bundling your coverage with the same company that insures your home and/or car.

Before you buy your new vessel, it’s a good idea to determine your insurance costs based on your needs.

Boat Insurance Coverage FAQs

Small Boat (29' or less) Insurance

What is the best coverage for my boat?

It is best to have what is known as an "All Risk" policy, which will provide coverage for all types of losses except those specifically excluded in the policy. Typical exclusions may include wear and tear, gradual deterioration, marring, denting, scratching, animal damage, manufacturer's defects, defects in design, and ice and freezing.

How much should I insure my boat for?

You should insure your boat for the amount it would cost you to replace it with like kind and quality. This is called "Agreed Value" or "Stated Value" coverage, and in the event of a total loss, will pay the full insured amount. Beware of policies providing "Actual Cash Value" (ACV) coverage, which means the value of your boat will be replacement cost less depreciation.

What other coverages can I expect with my policy?

The following are standard coverages with standard deductibles and average limits:

  • Medical payments, $5,000
  • $1,000 limit Personal effects, $250 deductible
  • Uninsured boaters liability, between $300,000 and $500,000
  • $500 to $1000 limit Towing and assistance, no deductible
  • $1,000 limit Fishing equipment, $250 deductible

Who is allowed to operate my boat?

Most policies will allow anyone to operate your boat so long as you have given them permission. There are exceptions, of course, especially with high performance boats or personal watercraft so always read your policy. But beware, too many additional drivers often results in increased premiums.

I live in an area where I can't use my boat in the winter, but my lender requires it be insured year-round. What can I do?

Ask your insurance agent if they offer what is commonly referred to as a “lay-up” discount. You have year-round coverage with a discount for the months your boat is in dry storage.

Large Boat (Greater than 29') Insurance

What are the differences between boat and yacht insurance?

Generally "boats" are considered to be 26' and smaller, and "yachts" are 27' and larger. Generally speaking yacht coverage is broader and more specialized because larger boats travel further and have more unique exposures.

What should I look for in a yacht policy?

There are two main section s of a yacht policy. Hull insurance is all risk direct damage coverage that creates a very broad insuring agreement. It will include agreed amount hull coverage, meaning all parties agree at the time the policy is written on the value of the vessel and that value will be paid in the event of a total loss.

A true yacht policy also includes replacement cost (new for old) coverage on partial losses, with the exception of sails, canvas, batteries, outboards and sometimes outdrives, which are depreciated. Protection and indemnity insurance is the broadest of all liability coverages, and because maritime law is unique, you will need coverages that are designed for those exposures. Such things as Harborworkers and Longshoreman's coverage and Jones Act (crew) coverage can be critical, as an uncovered loss in this area could run into hundreds of thousands of dollars. Besides providing payment of judgments against you, P&I also provides for your defense in Admiralty Courts.

What is a normal deductible?

A yacht policy usually carries a percentage of the insured value deductible, for instance a 1%, deductible means a boat insured for $100,000 would have a $1,000 deductible. Most lenders allow a maximum deductible of 2% of the insured value. Beware of "named special deductibles" such as storm damage of 10% or more.

What are some of the other standard coverages I can expect?

These standard coverages have standard deductibles and average limits:

  • Medical payments, $10,000 limit
  • $5,000 limit personal effects, $250 deductible
  • $500,000 limit uninsured boaters liability, no deductible
  • $1,000 to $3,000 limit Towing and assistance, no deductible
  • $1,000 Hurricane haul out coverage. Small percentage of limit as deductible. Hurricane warning must be posted by NOA. Payment made to move boat to safe location, haul out or make special preparations to withstand storm.

What is Breach of Warranty?

That is coverage that primarily protects the lienholder's interest in your boat, paying off the balance owed but nothing more. If you breach the warranties in the policy, such as promising not to go outside your navigational limits, not to use your boat during the lay-up period, not to use your boat for anything but private pleasure use, and you do NOT have this coverage and experience a loss, you don't get paid for that loss and neither does the lender. You could end up making payments on a boat you cannot use.

Do you need boat insurance?

What boat insurance will pay for, boat insurance costs and discounts, where to buy boat insurance.

Your prized boat probably didn’t come cheap. Whether you own a bass fishing boat or a yacht, it’s important to find the right boat insurance that will come to the rescue if you have damage or theft. Here’s how to understand boat insurance policies.

Your home insurance policy covers your boat in some cases, but it doesn’t go far. Homeowners policies typically cap boat coverage at $1,000 or 10% of your home’s insured value. And liability coverage — which pays for damage your boat does to others — typically isn’t included under home insurance. So a home insurance policy might help you only if your boat is small, slow and inexpensive.

At a glance: Do I need boat insurance?

You can typically buy liability insurance — which pays for damage your boat does to others — in amounts from $15,000 to $300,000, according to the Insurance Information Institute. Here's what else you can expect from a policy:

Check, too, about additional coverage for trailers and accessories, for towing and for damage caused by an uninsured boater.

You can buy two types of damage coverage for a boat:

Actual cash value. This pays the value of your boat at the time of the damage. If your boat is destroyed, your insurance company determines its market value.

Agreed amount value. If your boat is destroyed, your insurer pays you an amount that you and the company agreed on beforehand. If your boat can be repaired, your insurer replaces old items for new ones without deducting for depreciation.

It’s also important to understand what your boat insurance covers before heading out on the water, says Todd Shasha, boat and yacht personal insurance director at Travelers Insurance. He recommends checking whether your policy can cover these scenarios:

Mechanical breakdown coverage. Pays to repair or replace your outboard motor as long as it’s not due to wear and tear.

Salvage. If your boat becomes disabled and a basic tow won’t help, you might need to call a salvage company to recover it. Typically a salvage company will ask for a percentage of the boat’s value as payment, which can be quite expensive. Not all insurance companies offer this coverage.

Gadgets. Not all boat insurers cover expensive accessories like fishing equipment or fancy coolers unless they’re permanently attached to the boat. For example, Travelers offers personal property coverage that pays you if they’re stolen or lost while out on the water. Endorsements, which are additions to your policy, are available if you want to increase the value of your personal property limits.

Some important things to know about boating and your policy:

Navigational limits: If you own a yacht or a larger boat, your policy will have limits outlining where you can navigate your vessel. If you venture outside of the territory you agreed to in the policy, your insurance may not cover you. Typically, the broader your navigation area is, the higher your insurance costs will be.

Layup periods: Taking your boat out of the water is typical during cold weather, and most insurance companies will give you a credit because it’s not being used. But take the boat out for a spin before the layup period ends and you won’t be covered by your insurance policy.

Marine inspections: If your boat is an older model, most insurance companies will want you to have it inspected by a marine surveyor in order to assess the vessel’s condition and market value. For safety’s sake, consider a marine survey even if it’s not required.

Underage operators: You might be tempted to let your 12-year-old drive the boat every now and then. But if your child doesn't meet age and license requirements in your state, your boat insurance policy might not cover you. Age and license requirements for operating personal watercraft vary from state to state. In Virginia and Florida, for example, no one under 14 may operate a personal watercraft. In Texas, children under 13 are barred from driving one unless a licensed operator who's at least 18 is on board. For requirements where you live, check with the boating regulatory agency in your state.

How much you’ll pay for boat insurance depends on the level of insurance coverage you want, as well as the size, horsepower, type and value of your boat.

You can choose your deductible, which is the amount deducted from your insurance check if you make a claim. A typical policy has deductibles of $250 for property damage, $500 for theft and $1,000 for medical payments, according to the Insurance Information Institute. Liability claims against you do not have a deductible.

Insurance companies offer a variety of ways to save money, including discounts for:

Having a diesel-powered boat.

Not having made a previous boat insurance claim.

Carrying other policies, such as car or homeowners, with the same insurer.

Taking safety courses.

Boat insurance is widely available. NerdWallet looked at the top 25 auto insurance sellers in the country and found these that also offer boat insurance:

Offers coverage for boats up to $250,000 in value.

AAA lowers your deductible by 25% each time you renew your policy and haven’t had a claim.

Average cost of boat insurance from Allstate is about $20 a month, according to Allstate.

Bundle boat insurance with an Allstate homeowners policy and you qualify for up to a 20% discount.

American Family Insurance

Additional coverage options cover personal items and pay for repairs to your boat and equipment, without a deduction for depreciation.

If your boat is disabled, an Amica policy covers towing to nearest port.

If your yacht can’t be repaired, Amica pays to replace it with a new one, without subtracting depreciation.

Progressive offers several specialized coverage options, including 24-hour roadside assistance if your car breaks down while towing your boat.

Unlike some insurers, Progressive doesn’t require you to submit a navigation plan. Nor does it require an inspection of your boat.

State Farm’s optional emergency service pays up to $500 to service your boat, motor or boat trailer.

Optional wreck-removal coverage pays “reasonable expenses” to raise or remove your boat when it’s required by law.

Travelers splits the cost to move the vessel to safety when you carry “hurricane-escape reimbursement” coverage, which costs extra.

Antique boats get the same comprehensive coverage available in Travelers' basic policy.

USAA members get a 5% discount on boat insurance, but the discount is not available in all states.

USAA is open only to active and retired military and their families.

These are the best 5 boat insurance companies to cover your boat

Boat insurance can help protect your watercraft and your wallet..


Whether you have a speedboat, small fishing boat, yacht, sailboat or other type of watercraft, if you're a boat owner, chances are that you need some sort of insurance coverage for your vessel.

While only two states (Arkansas and Utah) require boat insurance , having coverage can help protect you financially if your boat is damaged, stolen or it's injured someone — either in the water or on land. You also may be required to carry boat insurance by your marina where you park your boat, or your lender if you have a boat loan .

A homeowners insurance policy may cover some damage to a boat, but it will likely not be sufficient coverage for many larger boats.

Here, CNBC Select  rounds up the five best boat insurance companies based on coverage, availability and ease of use (see  our methodology  for more information on how we made this list).

Best boat insurance companies

  • Best for bundling : Geico
  • Best for specialty boats : Markel
  • Best for discounts : Progressive
  • Best for high-value boats : Chubb
  • Best for a wide variety of boats : Foremost

Best for bundling

Geico boat insurance.

The best way to estimate your costs is to request a quote

Policy highlights

Geico has teamed up with BoatUS (Boat Owners Association of the United States) to offer insurance to recreational boaters in all 50 states and Washington, DC. Its standard policies include options for both agreed hull value and actual cash value, as well as liability only policies.

App available

  • Wide variety of coverage options with additional add-ons available
  • Available in all 50 states and Washington, DC
  • Few discounts listed online

Geico offers boat insurance policies through BoatUS that cover many types of boats and scenarios. Its policies include helpful features like discounts for completing boat safety courses and optional add-ons like boat towing assistance, disappearing deductibles and coverage for your fishing equipment. Geico is rated highly for customer satisfaction and financial strength, also taking top spots in CNBC Select's rankings for best car insurance and best home and auto insurance bundles .

Best for specialty boats

Markel boat insurance.

Known for insuring niche products like boats, Markel's boat insurance is a strong option for the breadth of boats covered by its policies and the depth of coverage available. Markel policies include protection against theft, wreckage removal and emergency towing. It can also include coverage like tournament fee reimbursement and trailer and boat lift coverage.

  • Specialty coverage for fishing, including equipment coverage and tournament reimbursement
  • With few other policies available, limited opportunities for bundling

Markel offers coverage for a variety of specialty items, including boats. Its coverage is an especially strong option for those who use their boats for fishing, with some unique perks and coverage for things like tournament fees and fishing equipment. Markel has several discounts available to customers and offers special policies for personal watercraft and yachts. It also offers commercial policies if you use your boat for charters or excursions.

Best for discounts

Progressive boat insurance.

Progressive covers a wide variety of boats under 50 feet long and at or below $500,000 in value. It also offers several discounts for those who bundle their policies, take a safety course or are the watercraft's original owner.

  • Affordable on-water towing coverage is available
  • 10 discounts for boat owners
  • Many age, value and material resctrictions on boats covered

Progressive is a strong choice for its boat coverage, covering a variety of boats valued under $500,000 and up to 50 feet long. Progressive stands out for offering competitive rates with 10 different boat insurance discounts, including discounts for paying in full, completing a safety course and getting quotes in advance. Optional policy add-ons include replacement cost coverage, hurricane haul out and Sign & Glide, which covers emergency services like on-water towing and jump starts.

Best for high-value boats

Chubb boat insurance.

Chubb is known for its coverage of high-value property and items and its boat insurance offerings are no different. Chubb offers boat coverage for pleasure boats up to 35 feet. Boat insurance coverage through this insurer caters to high-net-worth clients, and includes coverage for things like scuba gear and water skis and even high-end coolers.

  • Coverage for most watercraft up to 35 feet
  • May not be a good fit for those looking for a basic policy

Chubb is ideal for those insuring large or expensive boats or yachts. Creating policies to cater to those with higher-value properties and items, this insurer can cover luxury pleasure boats 35 feet and less. Chubb's unique, tailored coverage could be a good fit for clients who have an expensive boat with high-dollar items on board. It also offers unique services for yacht owners like complimentary background screenings on crew members, travel briefings and discounted rates on security services.

Best for a wide variety of boats

Foremost boat insurance.

With Foremost boat insurance, you get the same reliable coverage you would get through Farmers. Foremost offers coverage for a wide variety of watercraft, from fishing boats to cruisers. It also offers several discounts to customers, including a discount for paying in full.

  • Variety of boats are eligible for coverage
  • Several discounts available
  • Online quotes take two to three business days

As a Farmers Insurance company, Foremost offers coverage with the same great strength as its name-brand parent company. Foremost's boat insurance serves a wide range of boat types, from fishing boats to performance boats. With coverage available in all 50 states, it is a strong choice for many boat owners. Foremost also has multiple discounts available, such as for boat owners over 55, as well as special coverage options for USAA members.

What does most boat insurance cover?

Boat insurance generally covers the following:

  • Liability coverage that can pay for damages that you're found responsible for
  • Uninsured/underinsured boaters
  • Medical payments for you and your passengers
  • Specialty equipment or personal property onboard a boat

However, every policy is unique so it's important to review your policy to see what exactly is and is not covered.

Does boat insurance cover hurricanes?

Boat insurance can cover damage sustained from weather-related events, such as hurricanes, but it's not always included by default — it may be an optional add-on to your policy. Some insurers will also help cover the cost of moving your vessel out of danger during a hurricane advisory.

How much is boat insurance?

The average boat insurance premium is about 1.5% of the boat's insured value according to Bankrate . However, other factors like your credit score and location (and the length of the boating season there) can affect the amount you pay, too.

What are the three main types of boat insurance?

There are three types of boat insurance: actual cash value insurance, agreed value insurance and total replacement value insurance. Actual cash value policies pay for replacement cost minus depreciation if you have a claim, and are generally the most affordable. Agreed value insurance has an agreed-upon amount that the owner will receive if the boat is considered to be a total loss. Meanwhile, total replacement value insurance replaces damages with new items without considering depreciation.

Is it worth getting boat insurance?

Boat insurance can repair or replace a boat, and could be a useful tool for those with larger, powered boats. While smaller boats like a canoe or kayak may be covered under a homeowners insurance policy, a boat insurance policy can protect a larger and more expensive vessel, and make sure your finances aren't impacted if you're found liable for damages.

Bottom line

While boat insurance isn't required in every situation, having coverage can help ensure smooth sailing for you in a number of ways. Boat insurance can protect both your investment in your watercraft and your finances if you're involved in an accident. To find the best deal for you, it's important to get quotes from several insurers and compare them.

Our methodology

To determine the best boat insurance companies, CNBC Select analyzed dozens of U.S. insurance companies with policies for boats that suit a variety of needs.

When narrowing down and ranking the best boat insurance companies, we focused on coverage, availability, unique features and ease of use. We considered the number of states where coverage is available, the variety of vessel types and sizes covered, financial strength ratings from AM Best (which measures a company's ability to pay on debts), and the number of discounts available.

From there, we sorted our recommendations by the best overall and runner-up, the best for discounts, best for high-value boats, and best for a wide variety of boats.

Note that the premiums and policy structures advertised for motorcycle insurance companies are subject to fluctuate in accordance with the company's policies.

Nigel Farage is the people's pick to take over from Rishi Sunak as leader of the Conservatives if Labour wins the election, according to a new poll. 

The poll of 2,000 people showed 19% think Mr Farage should take over from Mr Sunak.

The poll offered six other names - Penny Mordaunt (15%), James Cleverly (6%), Kemi Badenoch (5%), Suella Braverman (4%), Priti Patel (2%) and Robert Jenrick (1%). 

However, the majority of those surveyed in the poll for The Independent were stumped as to who should take the Tories' top job - 48% said they did not know who should replace Mr Sunak.

The poll also found that 45% of all voters believe Labour will win the next two elections, with just 19% disagreeing.

But the poll said 49% of those surveyed believe the main reason for a Labour victory would be because of "Tory failures".

Shadow business secretary Jonathan Reynolds denies Labour is changing so much it's turning its back on unions. 

He was speaking to Sky News this morning after it emerged last night that Unite, the country's biggest union and the Labour Party's biggest donor, did not endorse its manifesto due to concerns about fire and rehire and the banning of new oil and gas licences.

Mr Reynolds says it was "legitimate" for Unite to voice concerns over jobs linked to North Sea oil, but said Labour had a plan to get the transition right and make it economically beneficial. 

"North Sea oil and gas production will be a part of the country's energy mix and energy future right up until 2050," he says. 

Speaking to the "pro-worker" part of the manifesto, he says: "There'll be more secure work. Flexibility will not be one-sided. 

"We will make sure not only that the economy is growing more strongly, but people feel the benefits of that." 

Senior Tories can already be seen vying for the top job in the party during election campaigning, shadow business secretary Jonathan Reynolds tells Sky News. 

He joined us this morning and said if it wasn't for the general election, he thinks Rishi Sunak would be facing a no confidence vote from his party. 

"You can see there is a leadership election already under way in the Conservative Party," he says. 

That was clear when Penny Mourdant came out swinging in last night's TV debate, when she was "absolutely unequivocal" in condemning the prime minister for leaving the D-Day ceremonies early, Mr Reynolds says. 

We've been speaking to Transport Secretary Mark Harper this morning.

Unsurprisingly, he is pushed on the prime minister leaving D-Day events early on Thursday.

He repeats that it was right for Rishi Sunak to apologise for his premature departure from Normandy - and that it was a mistake for him to exit in such a fashion.

Asked if this is the moment the Conservatives have "definitely lost this election", Mr Harper says: "No - I don't agree with that."

Pushed on whether the Conservatives' manifesto launch - expected next week - will save the campaign, Mr Harper says he hopes the document will "help frame the choice for people that we've already set out".

Mr Harper was also asked about the Conservatives' policy announcement today - their pledge to reverse the expansion of the Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) in London.

He said the expansion was motivated by money and not air quality - adding that parts of outer London had voted against Mr Khan to register their opposition.

Mr Khan won a record third term as mayor in this year's race, beating the Conservatives' Susan Hall by a quarter of a million votes.

By  Jennifer Scott , political reporter

The Conservatives have pledged to scrap the controversial expansion of the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) in London if they stay in power after the general election.

The party also promises local referendums on "aggressive" schemes like 20mph zones and Low Traffic Neighbourhoods. 

The Tories said reversing the policy of London mayor Sadiq Khan would form part of a new "backing drivers bill" that would stop the "war" their rivals had "launched" on motorists.

But Labour accuses their rivals of having an "abysmal record" on drivers.

Good morning!

We're approaching the end of the second full week of the fight for all 650 parliamentary seats - and the keys to Number 10.

Political parties are spreading out across the country to get their message out ahead of polling day on 4 July.

Here's what you need to know:

  • The Tories  have pledged to scrap the ULEZ expansion in a "backing drivers bill" if they stay in power. The party also promises local referendums on "aggressive" schemes like 20mph zones and Low Traffic Neighbourhoods. They will be campaigning in the North East this morning before heading to Yorkshire in the afternoon. 
  • Shadow chancellor Rachel Reeves  will be on the campaign trail for Labour in the South East while Sir Keir Starmer will be out in London;
  • The D-Day row rumbles on, as a poll finds the majority of Britons think Rishi Sunak's decision to leave commemorations before they ended was unacceptable;
  • A snap poll found Nigel Farage came out on top in last night's TV debate between leading figures from the seven main parties - while viewers thought Penny Mourdant would be a better PM than Sunak;

This morning's guests will be:

  • Transport secretary Mark Harper joined us at 7.15am;
  • Shadow business secretary Jonathan Reynolds at 8.15am;
  • SNP leader John Swinney at 11.15am;

Stick with us for all the latest political news throughout the day.

Snap findings from a More in Common poll of more than 1,000 viewers of last night's BBC debate suggest Nigel Farage came out on top.

According to the poll results , the audience is most likely to think Reform UK's leader won, with 25% picking him.

Labour's deputy leader Angela Rayner comes in second with 19%.

Just 7% thought Tory Penny Mordaunt won, but 32% believe she'd be a better prime minister than Rishi Sunak - with 12% picking him.

Full Results

  • Nigel Farage - 25%
  • Angela Rayner - 19%
  • None of the above - 14%
  • Carla Denyer - 11%
  • Stephen Flynn - 10%
  • Penny Mordaunt - 7%
  • Daisy Cooper - 5%
  • Rhun ap Iowerth - 2%
  • Don’t know - 8%

Almost half (47%) of 2019 Tory voters watching the debate thought that Mr Farage won the debate, while Ms Rayner leads among 2019 Labour and Lib Dem voters who tuned in.

The poll also shows viewers are most likely to think the SNP's Stephen Flynn (net +31), the Green Party's Carla Denyer (net +31) and the Lib Dem's Daisy Cooper (+30) did well in the debate.

Reform's original candidate for Clacton will stand as an independent against Nigel Farage in the upcoming general election.

Anthony Mack quit Reform after he was replaced by Mr Farage earlier this week to vie for the seat in Essex.

But that hasn't stopped him from trying to win there.

Mr Mack is expected to hold a press conference later today.

Olympic athletes, top musicians and an ex-soap actor are among those standing to become members of parliament at the general election.

The deadline for candidates to submit their nominations passed earlier today.

Notable names on the list include:

  • Blur drummer Dave Rowntree, Labour, Mid Sussex
  • Double Olympic gold medal rower James Cracknell, Conservative, Colchester
  • Rock star Tom Gray from the band Gomez, Labour, Brighton Pavilion
  • Former Coronation Street actor Marc Anwar, independent, Bury North
  • Gogglebox's Josh Tapper, Labour, Hertfordshire
  • Olympian Marc Jenkins, Conservative, Gower

Count Binface has announced he will stand against Rishi Sunak in his Richmond and Northallerton constituency.

Speaking on his podcast, Trash Talk, Binface said it would be like "Fury vs Usyk times a billion" in the July 4 election.

"That's right, I am here right now in Richmond and Northallerton and I can announce that I will be taking on Prime Minister Rishi Sunak in electoral combat on July 4.

"You shirked D-Day Rishi, you can't miss the B-Day.

"That's right. Binface vs Sunak is going to be Fury vs Usyk times a billion. Bring it on."

Binface recently came 11th in the London Mayoral Elections, where he earned 24,260 votes.

The Unique Burial of a Child of Early Scythian Time at the Cemetery of Saryg-Bulun (Tuva)

<< Previous page

Pages:  379-406

In 1988, the Tuvan Archaeological Expedition (led by M. E. Kilunovskaya and V. A. Semenov) discovered a unique burial of the early Iron Age at Saryg-Bulun in Central Tuva. There are two burial mounds of the Aldy-Bel culture dated by 7th century BC. Within the barrows, which adjoined one another, forming a figure-of-eight, there were discovered 7 burials, from which a representative collection of artifacts was recovered. Burial 5 was the most unique, it was found in a coffin made of a larch trunk, with a tightly closed lid. Due to the preservative properties of larch and lack of air access, the coffin contained a well-preserved mummy of a child with an accompanying set of grave goods. The interred individual retained the skin on his face and had a leather headdress painted with red pigment and a coat, sewn from jerboa fur. The coat was belted with a leather belt with bronze ornaments and buckles. Besides that, a leather quiver with arrows with the shafts decorated with painted ornaments, fully preserved battle pick and a bow were buried in the coffin. Unexpectedly, the full-genomic analysis, showed that the individual was female. This fact opens a new aspect in the study of the social history of the Scythian society and perhaps brings us back to the myth of the Amazons, discussed by Herodotus. Of course, this discovery is unique in its preservation for the Scythian culture of Tuva and requires careful study and conservation.

Zvenigorod's most famous sight is the Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery, which was founded in 1398 by the monk Savva from the Troitse-Sergieva Lavra, at the invitation and with the support of Prince Yury Dmitrievich of Zvenigorod. Savva was later canonised as St Sabbas (Savva) of Storozhev. The monastery late flourished under the reign of Tsar Alexis, who chose the monastery as his family church and often went on pilgrimage there and made lots of donations to it. Most of the monastery’s buildings date from this time. The monastery is heavily fortified with thick walls and six towers, the most impressive of which is the Krasny Tower which also serves as the eastern entrance. The monastery was closed in 1918 and only reopened in 1995. In 1998 Patriarch Alexius II took part in a service to return the relics of St Sabbas to the monastery. Today the monastery has the status of a stauropegic monastery, which is second in status to a lavra. In addition to being a working monastery, it also holds the Zvenigorod Historical, Architectural and Art Museum.

Belfry and Neighbouring Churches

Located near the main entrance is the monastery's belfry which is perhaps the calling card of the monastery due to its uniqueness. It was built in the 1650s and the St Sergius of Radonezh’s Church was opened on the middle tier in the mid-17th century, although it was originally dedicated to the Trinity. The belfry's 35-tonne Great Bladgovestny Bell fell in 1941 and was only restored and returned in 2003. Attached to the belfry is a large refectory and the Transfiguration Church, both of which were built on the orders of Tsar Alexis in the 1650s.

To the left of the belfry is another, smaller, refectory which is attached to the Trinity Gate-Church, which was also constructed in the 1650s on the orders of Tsar Alexis who made it his own family church. The church is elaborately decorated with colourful trims and underneath the archway is a beautiful 19th century fresco.

Nativity of Virgin Mary Cathedral

The Nativity of Virgin Mary Cathedral is the oldest building in the monastery and among the oldest buildings in the Moscow Region. It was built between 1404 and 1405 during the lifetime of St Sabbas and using the funds of Prince Yury of Zvenigorod. The white-stone cathedral is a standard four-pillar design with a single golden dome. After the death of St Sabbas he was interred in the cathedral and a new altar dedicated to him was added.

Under the reign of Tsar Alexis the cathedral was decorated with frescoes by Stepan Ryazanets, some of which remain today. Tsar Alexis also presented the cathedral with a five-tier iconostasis, the top row of icons have been preserved.

Tsaritsa's Chambers

The Nativity of Virgin Mary Cathedral is located between the Tsaritsa's Chambers of the left and the Palace of Tsar Alexis on the right. The Tsaritsa's Chambers were built in the mid-17th century for the wife of Tsar Alexey - Tsaritsa Maria Ilinichna Miloskavskaya. The design of the building is influenced by the ancient Russian architectural style. Is prettier than the Tsar's chambers opposite, being red in colour with elaborately decorated window frames and entrance.

At present the Tsaritsa's Chambers houses the Zvenigorod Historical, Architectural and Art Museum. Among its displays is an accurate recreation of the interior of a noble lady's chambers including furniture, decorations and a decorated tiled oven, and an exhibition on the history of Zvenigorod and the monastery.

Palace of Tsar Alexis

The Palace of Tsar Alexis was built in the 1650s and is now one of the best surviving examples of non-religious architecture of that era. It was built especially for Tsar Alexis who often visited the monastery on religious pilgrimages. Its most striking feature is its pretty row of nine chimney spouts which resemble towers.
