Best Gift for Boaters: A Tow Home

SPRINGFIELD, Va., August 31, 2020 – Last year, 76,418 recreational boaters had a reason to summon nonemergency, routine assistance from TowBoatUS, the nation’s largest on-water towing service for recreational boaters. Accidentally running aground, dead batteries and dead engines were the chief culprits. Instead of giving your favorite boater a pair of socks for birthday or Christmas this year, give them something much more useful − the gift of 24/7 on-water towing from TowBoatUS.

Like an auto club for recreational boat owners, a BoatUS Unlimited Towing Membership provides professional on-water towing service by the nationwide TowBoatUS fleet. For saltwater boaters, an annual membership is just $159 per year while freshwater boaters pay just $85. With the average out-of-pocket cost of a tow home more than $750, that could buy a lot of socks.

BoatUS is also the only national towing service offering the BoatUS App featuring TowBoatUSCONNECT which connects boaters to the closest local towing captain at the tap of a button, speeding response times.

Included with all towing membership plans are more than 25 benefits and discounts from Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS), a subscription to BoatUS Magazine, free DSC-VHF radio registration, and more. Your boater can also take advantage of BoatUS’s national boating advocacy efforts and safe-boating programs including free boating safety courses from the nonprofit BoatUS Foundation.

For boaters who frequently trailer their boats, consider gifting a BoatUS Membership with Unlimited Trailer Assist for $38 that takes care of roadside breakdowns 24/7. In addition to 100 miles of free on-road towing for both a disabled trailer and its tow vehicle to a safe location, lockout, flat tire, battery jump and fuel drop-off services are also included.
