Things to do before you make a pleasurecraft claim

Here are some things you can do to help make the claim process go smoothly:

Do what you can to stop more damage

You might need to pump out the water in your hull or tape up a crack in your windscreen. Don’t put yourself or anyone else in danger.

Take photographs

Photograph any damage or other evidence to help us sort out your claim faster. If you have security camera footage, let us know. Don’t throw anything out – we might need to see it.

Contact your broker

If you purchased your policy through a broker, call and let them know what happened. Have your proof of value and ownership documents on hand such as receipts, bank statements, valuations, and sale and purchase agreements.

Don’t admit you’re at fault for something or agree to anything

If your claim involves damage to someone else’s property or injury to someone, don’t admit you’re at fault. Tell them that you need to talk to your insurance company first. Then call us.

File a police report if necessary

If you’ve suffered theft, vandalism or other criminal activity, call the police within 24 hrs. Keep the report and file number ready for when making a claim.
