Are Insurance Boat Sales Likely To Increase Prices?

Prices for insurance boat sales may or may not increase depending on the state of the economy and buying preferences. A higher demand for luxury items such as boats will dictate the prices consumers are willing to pay, which is a basic principle of market economics. With higher demand and higher prices come higher insurance rates to cover the replacement, damage and repair costs associated with owning a boat and increased risk.

Factors Determining Prices

Insurance rates are based on the amount of risk that an insurance company is exposed to for a loss.  The loss that boat owners face include damage that may caused to the hull and machinery due to natural causes such as wind and fire.  Boat insurance rates are also based on the replacement costs of equipment that is stolen or malfunctioning that causes a loss or reduction in value for the boat owner.

Rise in Demand

The demand for boats and other items that are not seen as essential for many individuals is at a consistent level.  As more people begin to feel rich and have the necessary disposable income to make such a purchase, a corresponding increase in boat insurance rates will take place to account for the increasing risk.
