A sloop is perfect for long summer trips. Cruising with friends or family on Holland's most beautiful lakes and ponds. Of course, such a fine boat has to be properly insured, so that you can get on the water as soon as the sun starts shining. That is why you should always take out boat insurance for your sloop. That way you know for sure that you are insured in case of damage.

Sloop insurance against theft

When taking out sloop insurance, you can choose from three different types of coverage: Third Party, Limited Comprehensive or All-Risk. When you take out a WA-boat insurance it means that you will only be compensated for liability damage. If you cause damage to another person with your boat, this will be compensated by the insurer. Damage to or theft of your own boat is not covered by WA boat insurance. If you want to include theft of your boat in the insurance you can take out a WA + Casco boat insurance. This insurance covers theft of the boat and damage caused by fire, spontaneous combustion, explosion, joyriding, storm and hail. If you opt for Full Comprehensive Vehicle insurance, you are also insured for damage to your own boat, even if the damage is your fault.

Frequently asked questions about insuring a sloop

Is it compulsory to insure a sloop?

No, you are not obliged to insure your sloop. In the Netherlands it is not legally required to have boat insurance. You will therefore decide for yourself whether you think it is necessary to take out boat insurance for your sloop. However, in certain situations you do need WA boat insurance. This is for example during competitions, in a marina, a boat storage or on (part of) the water.

What is the best boat insurance for a sloop?

In order to find the best insurance for your boat, it is important that you compare well. When comparing boat insurances you have to pay attention to two things: the coverage you want and the sailing area where you are going to sail your boat. Do you want only a basic coverage or do you opt for the most extensive insurance? Are you only planning to sail in the Netherlands, or would you also like to take your boat abroad? This all affects the amount of your premium. Please read more.

I rent out my boat. Can I just insure it?

If you plan to rent out your boat, it is important that you inform your boat insurer. This is because not all boat insurers apply the same conditions when hiring out a boat. You should check whether your boat is still insured when you rent it out and under what conditions, whether you have to pay extra premium when you rent it out, how long the rental period may be and whether you are faced with a possible excess.

Sloop insurance Amsterdam

Do you prefer to sail your sloop through the beautiful canals of Amsterdam? Then it is often not possible to take out an all-risk boat insurance. Most insurers find the risk of damage to the boat too big and therefore do not provide an all-risk boat insurance. If they do, the premium is often much higher. Fortunately, it is usually possible to take out third-party insurance if you want to sail in the canals of Amsterdam. If you want to insure theft, burglary or attempted burglary in Amsterdam, many insurers require that your boat is moored in a guarded marina. This also applies to Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht.
