Progressive Insurance recently introduced a new coverage for boaters called Propulsion Plus. Propulsion Plus pays to repair or replace the lower unit of an outboard motor, or the outdrive of a stern drive motor, in the event of a mechanical breakdown. The coverage is available for boats up to 10 years old, and can be kept until the boat turns 21.
Propulsion Plus was created in response to customers asking for expanded coverage for their propulsion units and is available as an optional coverage for as little as $38 per year. Replacing the propulsion system on a boat can cost thousands of dollars, so the new coverage can help protect boaters from breaking the bank in the event of a mechanical breakdown.
