Motorboat insurance not compulsory in the Netherlands

In the Netherlands, it is not compulsory to insure your motorboat. However, in some situations a WA boat insurance is compulsory. This is for example at competitions, in a marina, a boat storage or on (part of) the water. Do you ever go abroad with your motorboat? Then it may be that a boat insurance is legally required. For example, this is often the case in countries around the Mediterranean Sea, such as Greece, Croatia, Italy and Spain. In these countries, you can prove your coverage with an international insurance certificate. You can request this certificate from your insurer or agent before you take your motorboat on holiday.

Reason to insure your motor boat

Insuring your motorboat is not compulsory, but it is often wise. After all, the Dutch waters are getting busier and busier. Because of this, the chance of an accident is also increasing. Therefore it is wise to have at least a WA-boat insurance for your motorboat. With a WA-boat insurance the damage that you cause to others is covered. The repair costs for damage to a boat can sometimes be high. Not to mention personal injury. Moreover, third-party insurance does not have to cost a lot. You already have a third-party insurance for €60,- a year, depending on your boat and situation. Curious about what it costs to insure your motorboat? Calculate the premium directly.
