ANNAPOLIS, MD, January 14, 2015 – In addition to a new, industry leading three-year stem-to-stern boat warranty for all 2015 models, Beneteau boat buyers now receive a one-year BoatUS membership with Unlimited towing courtesy of the innovative sail and powerboat builder. The membership is a part of newly launched Beneteau Plain Talk Promise customer care program.

As BoatUS members, new Beneteau owners will have access to the nation’s largest on water boat towing service with over 600 TowBoatUS and Vessel Assist towboats standing by to assist at over 300 locations across the country. New owners will also benefit from 25 other BoatUS services and discounts that will make their boating experience better.
“New Beneteau buyers can face the same unexpected problems that happen to all boaters, like getting stuck on a sand bar,” said BoatUS Vice President of Towing Services Adam Wheeler. “However, with BoatUS towing services available 24 hours a day this hassle factor is erased. Coupled with the other member benefits BoatUS provides such as marina discounts on transient slips and six issues of the award-winning BoatUS Magazine, the BoatUS membership will allow Beneteau owners to get more out of their passion for boating.”
Said Beneteau America Marketing Director Maryline O’Shea, “We believe in providing our customers with the best service, long after they purchase a new Beneteau. Through our partnership with the largest nationwide towing assistance service, we provide them with professional on water help when they need it. It’s all about increasing ownership satisfaction.”
