It’s boat show season across the country and boaters everywhere are getting excited for their chance to hit the water. Progressive’s Miami International Boat Show is one of the biggest (if not the biggest) and is coming up February 12-16, 2015. It is one of the best in the country and each year there are many new products that come out. I know many people go just to see what the brands have in store for the new boating season. One big announcement this year will be from Mercury Outboards and I will be sure to mention this once they unveil it. Their teaser video was very good and I can’t wait to see it. Besides just the boats, Progressive’s Miami International Boat Show is a must-see event and there is really something for the whole family.
This year Progressive’s Marina experience features boat replicas, demos, a boating simulator and a see-through motion sensor digital floor that captivates both kids and adults alike! Your little ones will be ‘hooked.’
Another focus of this event is boater safety, which I feel should be a priority at any boating or fishing event. Progressive Insurance, along with their partners the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) are committed to boat safety and have made boater education a top priority. The Progressive Boat School will be there to help you sharpen your boating skills, refresh what you know and even help you save some money on your insurance.
Progressive Boat Insurance has many great insurance coverage options. Did you know you can get Propulsion Plus® that pays to repair or replace your lower unit? What about Trailer Trip Interruption for your way to and from the water? Insurance is something you need to have and at the same time, you hope you never need to use. My one and only experience with a claim on my boat insurance was after hitting black ice while pulling my boat to the Columbia River several years ago. It was a scary experience that damaged my truck and totaled my trailer, but thankfully I had Progressive Insurance and they took care of me fast.
One other feature is Sign & Glide®, which offers comprehensive assistance while on the water for only $50 a year with no extra charges. In addition to Comprehensive and Collision coverage, Total Loss Coverage replaces the insured’s boat with a new boat that is comparable in make, size, type and equipment. Sign & Glide®, Propulsion Plus®, Trailer Trip Interruption and Total Loss Coverage are just a few examples of the coverage Progressive Insurance offers boaters around the country.
