Why your boat needs a professional written appraisal. There are two basic types of boat insurance—“agreed value” and “actual cash value”, also known as "stated value." How depreciation is handled is what sets them apart. An "agreed value" policy covers the boat based on its value when the policy was written. While it may cost more, there is no depreciation for a total loss of the boat (some partial losses may be depreciated). "Actual cash value" policies may cost less, but factor in depreciation. Simply stated, the policy will only pay up to the actual cash value of the boat at the time it is declared a total or partial loss. Eventually, as your boat ages, your insurer will probably insist on an actual cash value policy, unless you provide a Replacement Value Appraisal
You take your Chevy Tahoe for a quick oil change and then you get the phone call! Is it totaled? Let's say your Tahoe is worth $28,000. In Florida, if the insurance company believes the cost to repair is close to 80%, or about $22,000, it's declared a Total Loss. But wait, there's more.....

Daily driver (Stated Value) insurance is well suited for your daily driver car that is depreciating in value, but your custom or restored collector car that is going up in value, needs different (Agreed Value) insurance coverage. Do NOT lump your daily drivers and collector cars on the same policy! In the event of a claim for your collector car, you could be greatly disappointed!
