Fishing equipment coverage

Let's go fishing

Losing your fishing equipment can be devastating to your favorite pastime and your wallet. That's why we offer optional fishing equipment coverage, which can be added to any Markel boat insurance policy. This coverage provides replacement cost coverage for your fishing gear, including:
  • Rods and reels
  • Lures, rigs, and line
  • Tackle boxes
  • Depth finders
  • Trolling motors

Up to $5,000 in replacement cost is covered for fishing equipment. All losses under this endorsement are subject to a $250 deductible per occurrence.

Miss a tournament? We've got you covered.
We know how disappointing it can be to miss out on a fishing tournament, especially when you've already paid the entry fee. Our tournament fee reimbursement, included with our fishing boat insurance coverage, refunds your entry fee if you are not able to participate in a scheduled tournament due to:
  • Bodily injury to you or a family member
  • Loss or damage to your fishing boat
  • Mechanical breakdown of your towing vehicle while en route to the tournament
Professional fishermen need professional protection.
In addition to our fishing boat insurance coverage, we offer another layer of liability protection for those fortunate enough to make fishing their career. Our expanded professional angler liability coverage is available for inland bass and walleye fishermen, while they are participating in:
  • Fishing tournaments or charity events
  • Fishing seminars and workshops
  • Distributor or sport shows and dealer open houses
  • Fishing guide activities
  • Fishing skill demonstrations to generate income or attract attention to a sponsor's product
