Effective May 1, 2006, each motorboat, including personal watercraft (PWC), is required to carry owner’s or operator’s liability insurance when operated on Utah waters. A motorboat equipped with an engine of less than 50 horsepower is exempt from this requirement.

Proof of insurance must be carried on board the motorboat whenever it is in operation. The minimum insurance requirements are: $25,000 / $50,000 bodily injury / death – $15,000 property damage or $65,000 combined minimum per accident.

A motorboat, owned by a non-Utah resident and registered in the non-resident’s state, must meet its state’s insurance requirements or have 90 days to comply with Utah’s liability insurance requirements.
