MarineMax repair facilities can now help BoatUS members get back on the water after an insurance claim.

MarineMax said it is now a repair provider for BoatUS Marine Insurance members, which adds 45 repair facilities across the country to the more than 100 that are already available.

“This is a time-saver for our members,” claims vice president Rick Wilson said in a statement. “Sometimes when they have a claim and need repairs, boaters don’t know where to turn. We connect them to a reputable MarineMax location with highly qualified marine technicians and repairers.”

Working with an established repair facility helps provide better service, Wilson said. “Communication time is minimized, and there’s an increase in supportive service to insureds that won’t leave them guessing next steps.”

“We are excited to support BoatUS Marine Insurance Program members with the exceptional, world-class service experience that we provide all our customers,” said MarineMax national parts and service manager Travis Fraley. “This opportunity will also help us meet new boaters and introduce them to all the great perks MarineMax has to offer.”
