ALEXANDRIA, Va., November 20, 2017 – What do you get a boater for Christmas? Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS), has three holiday gift ideas that are perfect for any boater, sailor or angler:

The gift of on-water towing: Give the gift of a BoatUS Unlimited Towing Membership with towing service provided by TowBoatUS. For saltwater boaters an annual Membership is just $149 per year, and for freshwater boaters the price is only $72. Both provide 24/7 dispatch assistance, and your boater will never have to pay out of pocket for a tow back to the dock or for a soft ungrounding. Included with an Unlimited Towing Membership is a subscription to award-winning BoatUS Magazine; exclusive fuel, transient slip and repair discounts; and the opportunity to earn rewards on boating gear at West Marine stores.

The gift for roadside breakdowns: For a stocking stuffer that offers big benefits to a trailer boater, consider gifting a BoatUS Membership with Unlimited Trailer Assist for $38 that takes care of roadside breakdowns. In addition a BoatUS Magazine subscription, membership discounts and West Marine rewards, one hundred miles of free on-road towing for both a disabled boat trailer and its tow vehicle to a safe location or repair shop are included, along with lockout, flat tire, battery jump and fuel drop-off service.

The gift that makes boating better: A basic BoatUS Membership for just $24 includes more than 25 benefits and services, including round-the-clock on-water or roadside dispatch with BoatUS paying the first $50 in towing services, a BoatUS Magazine subscription; exclusive fuel, transient slip and repair discounts; and rewards on boating gear at West Marine stores. Your boater can also take advantage of BoatUS’ advocacy efforts, safe boating and clean water programs.

All of these gifts can be found at BoatUS.com/gifts or by calling 800-395-2628. For every gift Membership purchased before December 25th, 2017, the gift giver will be entered to win a $200 West Marine gift card.
