What is a speedboat?

A generalised term to describe a wide range of boats, a speed boat is generally defined as a high-speed motorboat with a powerful engine. It may have an onboard or outboard motor.

How fast do speedboats go?

Our speed boat policy covers high-speed vessels that generally reach speeds up to 50kts. The fastest speedboats can travel in excess of 80kts. Often called ‘high-performance boats, these vessels are not generally covered under our speedboat policy. Speak to a member of our team to find out more.

Speed boat motor and equipment cover

When you’re travelling at high speeds, you need equipment that works hard. Our policy covers loss and damage to machinery and equipment to maintain your high-speed vessel so you can concentrate on the water.
