Marine Risks in South Carolina
Marine businesses in South Carolina will face many substantial risks. Tropical storms and hurricanes, such as the recent mega-storm, Hurricane Matthew, are prone to come up from the south and impact the state. These storms can effect charter boats, rental boats, private boats in marinas, and boats being built or worked on in shipyards. These serious storms can also damage docks, vehicles, structures associated with marine businesses, and more. Ask your agent about hurricane insurance coverage today.
Accidents are another major risk for South Carolina marine businesses. Accidents and injuries can occur if a boat crashes into something such as a submerged vessel or sand bar. If someone slips and falls on company property or if other unexpected events happen, you’ll want to be protected as well. Despite the best safety efforts, many accidents do still happen. Make sure you have the coverage you need.
Other risks South Carolina marine businesses can face include crime and loss of personal property. Personal property can get lost if a vessel sinks, catches fire or runs aground. Ensure you are protected from theft and other property loss, especially if you are regularly taking passengers out on the water.
