Re: What are typical marina liability insurance requirements
The standards will probably depend on state, local variances. Most marina slip applications you find online will usually show their requirements. The Great Lakes have 100's of marinas so check on the area you are interested in. Grand Traverse Bay, northern Lake Michigan, is pretty standard at $300,000. Take a look at Elmwood Marina in Traverse City, Mi and you will find the information at the end of their seasonal slip application.
You were not specific as to whether you are looking for seasonal or transient. We have the required insurance, but as a transient I have never been asked about insurance at any Lake Michigan marina in Mi or Wi.
If you are looking for seasonal slips your biggest issue will be in finding one available in many locals. In many places the demand outstrips supply
