New App!

BoatUS — We're With You On The Water

The New BoatUS app is all of BoatUS right at your fingertips. Still the fastest way to get a tow on the water, our new app combines the features you love to take with you on the water like tides and marine forecasts, plus convenient access to your BoatUS Membership or insurance policy.

The BoatUS mobile app now offers hurricane alerts that are refreshed with every NOAA update to the forecast. Download the app now or update to the current version (V 4.2.0) and opt-in to push notifications to take advantage of this new feature. BoatUS policyholders can also use the app to file a claim, including hurricane haul-out claims, right through their phone.

Not a BoatUS Member? You can still download the free app to call for assistance on the water and take advantage of the convenient tide and weather forecasting features.

You can add additional locations and save them to your profile as long as you've created an app account and are logged in. To add a new location, go to the search bar at the top of the weather or marine forecasts screen and start typing the name of the city you wish to add. Select it from the drop down if it pops up, or tap the magnifying glass search icon. When the location forecast appears, tap the star icon in the upper right. It should change colors. That indicates it's been added to your favorites. To see the forecast for the next four days, tap the "See Forecast" button.
