Vessel Insurance Policy

Slip licensees are required to provide proof of vessel liability insurance, which, at a minimum, must meet the standards outlined below:

  • Provide general liability vessel insurance coverage (Protection and Indemnity), with a minimum policy limit of $300,000.
  • Policy must include wreck removal and pollution coverage.
  • Policy shall name the Santa Cruz Port District (SCPD) as Additional Insured, if available from the underwriter.
  • For vessels held in partnership, the policy must list the individual names of each partner.
  • Sublettors shall be required to provide proof of insurance for their vessels in accordance with this policy.

To fulfill insurance requirements, please provide the harbor office with a copy of one of the following:

  • Declaration of insurance
  • Certificate of insurance
  • Proof of insurance

Insurance cards will not be accepted as proof of insurance, because they do not include pertinent information relative to coverage limits (i.e. $300,000 minimum, fuel/wreck removal endorsement, or additional insured endorsement).
