Dealerships certified under the Marine Industry Certified Dealership Program are now entitled to business insurance through CNA Financial, the exclusively endorsed insurance company of the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas.

CNA is partnering with Norman-Spencer Marine Insurance, the MRAA’s exclusively endorsed insurance broker, to bring the perk to certified dealers.

Step 1, Step 2 and Five Star Certified Dealers enjoy escalating levels of comprehensive business insurance coverage that the certified program said are unattainable anywhere else in the recreational marine industry.

“The relationship that exists between CNA, Norman-Spencer and the MICD program is a profound, meaningful way to underscore the overall value of becoming certified for dealers,” program director Sonja Moseley said in a statement.

“There are an incredible array of choices when it comes to selecting business insurance. It’s a critical component of any marine retailer’s operation, and finding the right option can be tricky without expert guidance. Not only can CNA and Norman-Spencer advise dealers on the best route to take, but this program also makes it easier to secure top-of-the-line coverage that provides the best protection available in the business.”
