A boat is a costly investment, and it contains equipment and other valuables that could be targeted by thieves. Even if your boat is well insured, filing a claim and getting compensated for a loss can be a time-consuming process. Taking some simple security measures can keep your boat, its contents, and your family safe and give you peace of mind.

Install Durable Locks on Your Boat

If you only use your boat occasionally for recreation, it will be left unattended, possibly for long periods of time, when you’re not using it. One of the simplest and most effective ways to safeguard your boat during those times is to install heavy-duty locks.

Thieves are generally opportunists. They will target boats that are poorly secured. Heavy-duty locks may be enough to deter thieves who are looking for an opportunity to quickly steal property.

Deadbolt or mortise locks can keep areas where people sleep and store belongings safe from thieves. Any potential entry point, such as a door or window, should be secured. Locks can also protect your family if someone tries to break in while you are onboard.

An outboard motor is expensive, and a thief can steal it with little effort and sell it. An outboard motor lock can keep that valuable piece of equipment secure.

In some cases, thieves don’t just want to steal a boat’s contents; they want to take off with an entire boat and sell it. If you’re using a vehicle to haul a boat to the water or back to your home or storage area and you stop to take a break, the vessel can be vulnerable. A boat trailer lock can prevent someone from detaching the boat from your vehicle, attaching it to a different vehicle, and driving off with it.
