yacht on the waterOwning a yacht gives you access to some of the most unique travel experiences in the world. All you need is water and a safe harbor and you can go almost anywhere you want.

But, as you yacht to new destinations, think ahead. International boating has more complicated procedures than boating in domestic waters. If you have a yacht accident internationally, you might face extra insurance risks.

Before you yacht overseas, make sure that you have all your ducks in a row. Take steps to protect both your yacht and your person.

Check Your Insurance

Talk to your boating insurance agent. Some insurance policies may not cover you if you venture into international waters. They may not cover you if sail into the waters of certain countries.

If you were to have an accident in a place where your coverage lapsed, then you could face extreme costs.

Find out beforehand if your route has coverage. Your agent can help you find the right boating insurance to get you where you want to go.

Get Correct Paperwork

Remember, safe international travel comes with more than the right insurance.

You may need to get landing permits or piloting permits to land in international ports. Before you travel, do your research. Contact the U.S. Department of State or the local consulate or embassy before you leave. They can help you get proper documentation to travel lawfully across borders.

Protect Yourself

Don’t forget to protect yourself as well as your boat. Make sure that you have proper travel paperwork, like your visas and passport with you. Always get the proper documentation to pilot a boat in international waters.

This is also a good time to look into travel insurance. This insurance can often benefit you during international travel.

Travel insurance may come with health benefits in case you get sick while traveling. It may also protect losses you may suffer during emergency evacuations of the area you are in. Talk to your agent about options for travel insurance for yachts.

Be Safe

Always remember, yachting in another country is a different ball game. These countries have different boating and navigational laws compared to the United States. Familiarize yourself with the laws of the country that you are in.

Always follow those navigational laws to the letter. Take every necessary precaution for the safety of you and your passengers.
