Yes liability only. Typically about $500 US a year for something around 40ft.

As a UK citizen sailing a 44 ft UK registered boat world wide [ except the USA ] that is what it would cost me. If I visit the USA it goes up. Something about too many lawyers.

Fully comp with the boat in the water year round about $3000 pa with a 25% deductable if I sail in the hurricane box during the season and the damage is due to a named storm.
