What is 'Insurance for Boat Salvage Yards'?

A boat salvage yard is like an automotive scrap yard. This is a place where you bring old boats and parts. They are often recycled or sold at a low price. You can also get metal scraps, second-hand marine components, boating equipment, and more. Some salvage yards will offer a service where they can remove a boat from its current location.

Insurance for boat salvage yards can provide liability coverage for the operations of the salvage yard including the services and products it offers. This insurance can financially protect you in the event of a claim or lawsuit. Sometimes, having liability insurance is the difference between keeping a business open or having to shut it down.

Thus, it’s important to carry insurance for your boat salvage yard to protect you and your business.
