BoatUS recently launched several programs for pet owners, including new insurance coverage through the BoatUS Marine Insurance Program.

Effective June 1, the program includes $1,000 of coverage for injuries as the result of an on-the-water accident, as well as a death benefit at no additional cost.

"At BoatUS, we know accidents don't just impact your boat and ‘human' family or guests aboard. Sometimes pets get hurt, too," BoatUS vice president of underwriting Mike Pellerin said in a statement. "If your boat suffers a covered loss and your (or a family member's) dog or cat on board suffers an injury, we'll pay up to $1,000 for veterinary expenses or for final arrangements, should the worst happen, for each pet aboard. This is just another way we take care of our members."
