Video: Don’t Get Your PWC Insurance From a Car Company

Listen, we’re harped on you to get insurance for your personal watercraft for a while now. Like wearing a lifevest, riding without insurance (or even keeping it in winter storage) is taking a big chance that simply, you cannot afford to risk. Thankfully, there are many of you who already maintain some level of protective coverage for your PWC, and some who have heeded our words and reached out to your insurance provider.

But here’s the rub: not all watercraft insurance is created equal. While the same insurance company who covers your home or automobile might offer powersports insurance doesn’t mean they have the level of coverage that’ll actually help you. That’s why we advocate looking into McGraw Powersports Group (MPG). The crew at McGraw are actual enthusiasts of powersports vehicles and actively ride and recreate.

The video below was produced for Pacific Specialty, the parent company for MPG. Featuring a “suite of powersports insurance products that provide genuine protection for riders, whether that be a motorcycle, ATV, watercraft, boat, RV, travel trailer or other gas powered toy,” McGraw and Pacific Specialty have been in the industry since 1976 and have accrued a great deal of experience and know-how in insuring and processing claims on motorcycles and powersport vehicles.

“In fact,” Pacific Specialty writes, “motorcycle insurance was the first product we actually wrote. This isn’t car insurance dressed up in a leather jacket — we were purposely built as a company to insure powersports. Our products are designed to provide the coverage you need and not a lot of extra stuff. We want to get you back out on the street, back out on the dirt, back out on the water.”
