Liability Insurance Requirement

  • 1.  Liability Insurance Requirement

    Arkansas does require liability insurance:

    All motorboats powered by engines of more than 50 horsepower, and all personal watercraft (PWC), must be covered by a liability insurance policy.
       The policy must provide at least $50,000 of liability coverage per occurrence.
        It is illegal for the owner of such a vessel to operate it, or allow others  
        to operate it, unless the vessel has the required insurance.
    Proof of insurance must be carried on board the vessel and be available for inspection by an enforcement officer.
    Registration applications for vessels requiring liability insurance must be accompanied by proof of the insurance policy.

    Hope this helps.
