First Hybrid Boat & Yacht Insurance Discount from Travelers

Paul Fisher Insurance Services Now Offers First Hybrid Boat & Yacht Insurance Discount from Travelers
Innovative boats need innovative insurance – Paul Fisher Insurance Services offers up to 10 percent discount* for hybrid vessels through Travelers

Paul Fisher Insurance Services and Travelers (NYSE: TRV) are staying in-synch with boaters by today announcing an innovative, industry-first discount of up to 10 percent on hybrid boat and yacht insurance. Now, more than ever, boaters are looking for ways to improve fuel economy and reduce their impact on the environment without sacrificing speed. As a result, hybrid powered boats are starting to enter the market.
The marine industry has responded to consumer demands for efficiency with new technology and hybrid powerboats fully capable of delivering the performance most boaters expect. Hybrid boats allow the operator to utilize electric propulsion at low speeds to minimize or eliminate emissions and fuel consumption. However, hybrid powered boats can generate the horsepower needed to reach higher speeds with the internal combustion engine.
“The marine industry has delivered hybrid powered vessels that use the latest, state-of-the-art technology while reducing fuel consumption,” said Paul, owner for Paul Fisher Insurance Services. “Paul Fisher Insurance and Travelers, closely follow the newest developments in boating to meet our customers needs with the best marine insurance products and services.”
Recently, various highly regarded manufacturers in the marine industry have introduced their versions of hybrid boats to the marketplace. The Hinckley Company offers a hybrid power option for customers interested in its DS42 model, Scout Boats launched a hybrid model in late 2007, Frauscher Bootswerft introduced its hybrid to the United States in May 2008 and the Island Pilot DSe Hybrid will make its debut at the 2008 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show. Steyr Motors, which powers the Frauscher vessels, markets its hybrid engine as the “world’s first serial hybrid propulsion system for pleasure boats.” In addition, other large production manufacturers are reportedly researching hybrid propulsion and developing prototypes to include in their lineup of boats.
“Travelers solid understanding of the functionality and operation of hybrid boats enables our agency to best serve our customers,” said Paul. “Travelers completed extensive research that suggests boat manufacturers will begin offering hybrid models to provide a hybrid option similar to what’s taking place in the automotive industry.”
A hybrid boat is specifically designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to conserve fossil fuels in comparison to the typical gasoline or diesel only powered boats. Travelers defines a hybrid boat as one that utilizes an integrated propulsion system that incorporates both an internal combustion engine and an electric motor in its original design. In this system, forward propulsion can be accomplished with the use of the electric motor with or without the use of the internal combustion engine.
Travelers continuously seeks ways to enhance existing products and develop new insurance solutions and services to address the impacts of changing climate and encourage environmentally friendly behavior. Travelers was the first insurance company to deliver a national hybrid auto insurance discount, as well as the first to deliver an insurance discount to electric boat owners. The company also provides business insurance products for environmentally focused commercial customers.
