 ALEXANDRIA, Va., September 20, 2011 – The little green GEICO gecko is helping Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) members save money. Under a new partnership program, BoatUS members may receive up to an 8% discount on auto insurance, which is on top of GEICO’s already low rates, and may save on their home and renters insurance as well.

“This is another reason why being a BoatUS member pays off,” said BoatUS Vice President of Membership, Heather Lougheed. “With over half a million members, we have the heft to negotiate the best discounts for our members, from auto insurance and travel discounts to special member rewards at West Marine and discounts on charter fishing trips, tackle and marina fuel, repair and transient dockage discounts.”
BoatUS offers annual membership for just $24 at Anglers may want to check out a BoatUS Angler membership at, also for $24 annually. Or, call 800-395-2628 to join either.
Both memberships offer identical benefits, however, Angler members receive a subscription to BoatUS Angler Magazine, which focuses on the fishing lifestyle, while BoatUS members receive a subscription to the largest circulation boating magazine in the country, BoatUS Magazine.
