Can you get boat insurance without a driver's license?

Will providers still sell me a policy? I want to purchase boat insurance for our family sailboat that we keep in a marina, but I don't have a driver's license.

Answer
“Having boat insurance for your sailboat is a good idea, especially when it’s in a public marina. Unlike auto insurance, boat insurance is usually optional.
Since you don’t need a driver’s license to operate a boat in most jurisdictions, you also don’t need a driver’s license to buy boat insurance. As long as you own the boat and it is registered in your name, you can purchase insurance.
If you currently have home or renter’s insurance with a company, look into the cost of boat insurance with them. Many companies offer discounts for bundling policies.
You can also request quotes online from multiple companies or go to Jerry. You can call or text Jerry’s friendly agents to easily find the best boat insurance policy. And the best part–Jerry helps you find quotes for free.”
