Florida is near the edge of some of the most popular waters in the world, with scenic beaches and warm temperatures year-round. It’s no wonder that people enjoy watersports in our region, including out-of-towners and residents alike. However, higher volumes of watersports mean a greater likelihood of an accident, some of which are caused by defects in watercraft products.
The Different Types of Watercraft
In Florida, the term “watercraft” can include:
- Jet boats
- Small fishing boats
- Leisure boats/yachts
- Any vehicle meant to be used on the water
- Jet skis / personal watercrafts

This is only one product—other watercraft defects have been discovered in other products that affect the driver’s ability to control the vehicle. Since powerboats and other waterborne recreational vehicles travel at such high speeds, this can result in devastating injuries, even fatalities. 4,000 accidents occurred in recreational boating in 2014 alone, leading to more than 600 deaths.
