CNA has underwritten marine risks continuously since 1882 and has a long and strong relationship with the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas (MRAA). "We’ve been endorsed by the MRAA since 1988 and we value the relationship because we want to work hand in hand with an association that has close ties to the industry,” says Brett Musser, recreational marine product director for CNA. "Through the MRAA, we’re able to develop relationships with some of the best dealers in the industry, dealers who enable us to stay up-to-date on industry trends so we can develop insurance solutions around their changing needs. We want to be ahead of the game and offer the best insurance protection possible.”
CNA – a Platinum Patron Member with the MRAA and a company with an "A” rating for financial strength–is an industry leader in marine insurance for dealers, manufacturers, marina operators and marine artisans, among others. With many decades of experience, the company goes beyond standard claim services to provide high-quality personalized solutions based on each policyholders individual exposures. For instance, CNA developed the MRAA-endorsed Business Insurance Program that’s specifically tailored for the marine retailing industry.
In addition, CNA’s staff of highly experienced claim specialists handle claims carefully, thoughtfully and attentively so customers can realize good protection at the best value in a timely manner. CNA claim specialists have an average of 15 years with the company and they participate in a comprehensive claim continuing education curriculum. At CNA, each claim is handled by a single adjuster, so each customer has one specialist devoting his or her time to handling the claim efficiently from start to resolution. "We offer more than just a policy. We deliver distinctive insurance solutions resulting in a superior experience for the customer,” says Musser. "That’s our winning proposition.”
CNA’s MRAA-endorsed Business Insurance Program offers a variety of standard insurance coverages such as property and liability coverages. In addition, enhanced specialized marine coverages are offered including boat dealers inventory, piers wharves and docks, and marine liability coverages. This program is offered to all members of the MRAA. "Our goal is to help dealers save money on insurance costs and lower their exposure to loss,” says Musser. "This is a relationship business. We want to know the people in the marine retailing industry and assure them that we’ll be here for them in the long run."
