Boat
Insurance


Boaties are a passionate lot. Our boat insurance is designed by insurance professionals with real boating experience and offers cover options to suit a variety of boats, boating lifestyles, and on water activities.

We believe that recreational boating should be for everyone.

Whether you’re a beginner or you were born on the sea, if you only get the jet-ski out in summer or you can be found fishing more than in the office, our boat insurance policy has options to suit your needs.

We understand that different types of boats have different cover requirements. That’s why our policy wording provides cover options for moored cruisers or yachts, trailercraft, ski boats and personal watercraft. This includes extensions for social or extended yacht racing, water skiing, wakeboarding, wakesurfing and aquaplaning, and voluntary rescue activities.

We know that there’s more to owning a boat than simply being out on the water, so we also include cover for your boat while it’s being stored, and if you have a trailerable boat, when it’s on your trailer.

We have boat insurance covered

COVER FOR YOUR BOAT

Our flexible policy wording is suitable for most types of boats.

COVER FOR YOUR PARTS

Whether an insured event damages your jet ski engine or your yacht mast, we’re here try to get you back on the water as soon as possible.

COVER FOR YOU

Accidents happen, even to the most experienced skippers, so Club Marine insurance covers parties to whom you have loaned your boat for personal injury liability, death or property damage arising from the use of your boat. We’ve even got an option for cover for when you get outside the boat and are water-skiing.

Any advice here does not take into account your objectives, financial situation or needs. Terms, conditions, limits and exclusions apply. Before making a decision, please consider the relevant Product Disclosure Statement (PDS)/Policy Wording, which is available on this website, your printed quote, which may list additional terms and conditions specific to your Policy and other Policy documentation including the Schedule.

Cover by a specialist insurer who understand you

There’s no better feeling than being out on the water. Life’s easy out there. You’re free.

We make it even easier for you with Club Marine Assist. Included with your policy at no extra cost, Club Marine Assist gives you round-the-clock support for you and your boat.

Terms and conditions apply.

Personal Assist

Help for you, when you need it. Personal Assist helps you sort out vehicle or transport rental in the case of an accident, both on and off the water, and accommodation for you and your passengers when your boat is away from your home or home port. We can also put you in touch with the right services for emergency medical advice and maintenance.

Vehicle Assist

Vehicle Assist covers you when you’re transporting your boat by trailer. You get roadside assistance when you’re towing your boat, or travelling to and from your boat. We’ll help you jumpstart a flat battery, change a tyre, get spare keys, provide you with emergency fuel, and tow your vehicle and/or trailer to our nearest approved repairer.

Member Assist

Members get 24/7 access to support, advice, directions, and services. We’ll provide you with information on service centres, marina locations, volunteer marine rescue coordination, and even tide times and weather reports.

Trailer Assist

Your boat isn’t always on the water, so Trailer Assist covers your trailer during those times too. We can help you change flat tyres, make minor mechanical repairs, arrange emergency towing to the nearest approved repairer, and arrange transport to get you and your boat back home.

Tips and Advice

Club Marine Trailer Trips - RAM 2500 Laramie
Club Marine editor Chris Beattie tests out the RAM 2500 Laramie. He reckons there’s better place to test it than in Gladstone – the heavy equipment capital of Queensland. Chris says it's a fantastic tow rig, designed to tow big boats. In this case it's the Haines Signature 788SF. The Laramie features a 6.7L turbo-diesel and almost 1100NM of torque.
Club Marine Trailer Trips - Gladstone
Dean Miller and the Club Marine crew are in the port of Gladstone. Some say it's the engine room of Queensland. It's also at the doorstep of the Southern Great Barrier Reef in the Capricorn and Bunker Group. Some of the iconic destinations here include Lady Elliot Island, Lady Musgrave Island, Herron Island and North West Island. The crew fished North West Island and landed some tuskies, red throat and cobia. Greg Haines even whipped up some bread-crumbed cobia! Not far from Gladstone is Lake Awonga, one of the best sportsfishing impoundments in the world.
Club Marine test on the Seakeeper 2 Gyro Stabiliser
Dean Miller has found the perfect solution to sea sickness – the Seakeeper Gyro 2 stabiliser. To test the SeaKeeper the Club Marine crew head out from Gladstone on the central Queensland coast. SeaKeeper has fitted a unit to a Haines Signature 788SF. Simon Bochenski from SeaKeeper describes it as a flywheel weight spinning at 9000 RPM. The gyro “precesses” fore and aft putting torque through the hull of the boat, eliminating roll. It operates at rest or underway, is powered by 12V and can operate for up to six hours.
