The Allstate Corporation Research Report

On October 18, 2013, The Allstate Corporation (Allstate) issued a press

policy active to help protect their boat and other watercraft against
potential theft and physical damage such as fire, wind, lightning and hail
while in storage. Katie Boyle, Allstate boat line Manager, commented, "A
yearly boat insurance check-up with an agent is a great opportunity to help
the owner make sure they have the right coverage for their needs. Many owners
have put in significant time, energy and money into their boat. So, it makes
sense they would want to protect their investment." The Full Research Report
