Bill Sparks 2023William M. Sparks   1945 - 2023

My father, William (Bill) Sparks, passed away sadly but comfortably  Sunday morning, surrounded by his family. He was a kind and loving man with a heart of gold.  There are so many who loved him and will feel this loss –  in the business world and far beyond.  He would say thank you to all of his small-business customer for their support, and he would wish everyone peace and happiness. I have run the William M. Sparks Insurance Agency for many years now, and I will continue to run it just as my father did and as he would want me to do.  On behalf of my family, I thank you all for your kind words, well wishes and support at this time.   --- Danielle Sparks

Boat Insurance covers theft, damage, related losses and others’ claims

Your boat is an important investment – even more important when you add accessories, equipment and a trailer.   Here at the William M. Sparks Insurance Agency, Inc. in Timonium, Maryland, we can help you sort through the options and arrive at the best boat insurance coverage for your needs.

The type of boat insurance coverage you require depends upon the size, type and value of your boat and the water in which you use it.

 Is Boat Insurance Needed for Small Boats?

Typically, small boats such as small sailboats, canoes and small power boats, may be covered under a renters, condo or homeowners policy.

 What Does Boat Insurance Cover?

Larger, faster boats require a separate insurance policy and coverages usually include the following:

  • Physical damage or loss – covers permanently attached equipment, machinery, furnishings and fittings as well as the hull.  In the event of a physical loss or damage, reimbursement depends upon which of the following types of policies you have chosen.
  • Agreed Amount Value – reimburses the previously agreed-upon (full or partial) value of your vessel.
  • Actual Cash Value – reimburses replacement cost at the time of the loss, less depreciation.
  • Property damage – covers damage to someone else’s property.
  • Bodily injury – covers injuries caused to someone else.
  • Medical payments – covers injuries to you and/or your passengers.
  • Theft of your boat or its covered elements.
  • Guest passenger liability – covers legal expenses of someone using the boat with your permission.

Liability limits, deductibles, additional coverages and discounts can vary to meet your needs.
