Marinas, Dry Stacks, and Yacht Clubs

Marina & Dry Stack Insurance

Many marinas also maintain dry-stack facilities along with forklift equipment and related services. In addition to their docks and bulkheads, many marinas also have other substantial real property (buildings) on land or over water, all needing respective property coverage. Inland marinas often have roof-covered docks that many insurers are not willing to insure, while coastal marinas tend to have a certain number transient boats, seasonally. Marinas often have on-site hotels, restaurants, and retail shops or shopping centers. Some such on-site businesses are operated by the marina itself while others are operated by third-party tenants. Some marinas have been privatized (slips sold to individual owners in a condominium arrangement).

All of the above present their own unique risks to the business and, potentially, to its owners and corporate officers. All of these risks require their own special forms of coverage, some crafted specifically for marinas and not fitting into the standard commercial property or liability forms. With our many years of Marine-industry-specific expertise and insurance experience, we can help you explore your questions and pursue your insurance goals regarding these special risks. 

Strickland Marine Insurance Agency, with its extensive experience and expertise in placing coverage that is specific and staple to marina operations and other marine-related businesses, can help you seek and consider the insurance coverages that are right for you, your marina, and your appetite for risk versus your premium cost. We can also help you attain high value in your insurance placements by marketing your account with multiple top marine-specific insurance carriers, having them compete with each other to provide insurance quotes for your marina or yacht club and its properties and liabilities, which may include general liability, Marina/Marine Operators’ Legal Liability, Protection and Indemnity, workers’ compensation, directors & officers, and/or other lines of insurance. Many other lines of coverage are also available.  Give us a call today, and see why so many marinas use Strickland Marine Insurance Agency, Inc. for help with their marina insurance.

Coverage Options Include

Agents and Brokers

If you’re a broker or agency principal, and you need help marketing, sourcing, or placing coverage for your clients who own marinas, please contact us through our “Agents and Brokers” page to request a brokerage relationship.  We serve both direct customers and brokers.

Marinas incur a variety of property and liability risks arising from their commercial activities. Aside from providing dock space, most marinas also provide a host of other amenities and services. Marinas commonly host fishing tournaments, boat shows, charters, sailing schools, regattas, and watercraft rentals, or have tenets who do. Some provide referral services to charter and rental services. Most occasionally move customers’ vessels, incurring liability exposure. Many perform other services for their customers or incur liability vicariously by allowing outside contractors access to the premises and to customers’ vessels.
