* Note: Savings compared with a similar policy from Cowan Group to non-members. To qualify for the CPS Insurance program, it may be required for some boats that a recent marine survey be presented; as a result, not all boats may qualify or restrictions may apply. The CPS Boat Insurance program provides a comprehensive package. Not all proposed competitive policies are as comprehensive as the Cowan Group CPS program; read the policy fine prints of any competitive offer.
** Benefits may change from time to time without notice.
