A boat is a beautiful thing, but boat repair is notoriously challenging. And you can't use your boat when it’s in the shop. You can extend the enjoyment you and your family get from your boat and other watercraft. Avoid the headaches of large or unexpected repair bills for your watercraft by purchasing a vehicle protection plan.

When making a watercraft purchase, ask your dealer about the features and benefits of extended protection. You might also consider looking into the reliability history of the model you’re purchasing to help you decide which extended protection plan is right for you.


  • Wash your watercraft regularly. Environmental wear and tear can be hard on watercraft. Routine waxing and anti-fouling paint can help protect it from the elements.
  • Moor your boat carefully. Scratches and damage often happen when a boat is carelessly docked. Make sure all lines are securely fastened and neatly coiled.
  • Keep your batteries clean. Dampness and dirt can drain your batteries.
  • Pay attention to the details. Loose fittings and frayed ropes can be the precursor to bigger problems. Create a preventative maintenance routine and stick to it.
  • Invest in a cover. Dirt and water aren’t the only things that can damage your watercraft. Falling leaves and bird droppings can also cause a lot of damage if left unchecked. A cover can also prevent UV rays from breaking down hoses or fading carpets and upholstery.
