SPRINGFIELD, Va., August 23, 2021– Looking for a holiday gift for the boater in the family? Look no further than an annual BoatUS Unlimited Towing Membership. Like an auto club for recreational boat owners, a BoatUS Unlimited Towing Membership provides professional 24/7 on-water towing service by the TowBoatUS fleet ─ the nation’s largest. A Towing Membership takes care of the problems that your boater did not plan for, such as an accidental grounding in shallow waters, an engine breakdown or dead battery, or running out of fuel. Tows back to the launch ramp, home dock or marina are included.

For saltwater boaters, an annual membership is just $165 per year, while freshwater boaters pay just $90. BoatUS is also the only national towing service that offers the BoatUS App, which connects boaters to the closest local towing captain at the tap of a button, speeding response times.

For boaters who trailer their boats, consider adding Unlimited Trailer Assist for just $15 that takes care of roadside boat trailer breakdowns 24/7. It includes 100 miles of free on-road towing for both a disabled trailer and its tow vehicle to a safe location, as well as lockout, flat tire, battery jump and fuel drop-off services.

But that’s not all a BoatUS Towing Membership offers: Plans include more than 25 valuable benefits and exclusive discounts from Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS), a subscription to award-winning 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.
