How can I save money on my boat insurance?
Acacia Insurance is committed to safe boating, so we reward our clients with discounts on certain boat insurance coverages (subject to individual qualification and state availability):

Protective device and boat monitoring discounts. You’ll save if your boat is equipped with a GPS locator/position alert system, radar system, burglar alarm, vapor detection system, or built-in CO2 fire extinguishing system, among others.
Save if you have a Vessel Safety Check (VSC) performed by the US Coast Guard Auxiliary at your boat, and when you pass.
