The American Boat and Yacht Council signed an agreement with BoatU.S., launching a cooperative group program that gives ABYC members more than 26 additional benefits and services at a reduced rate.
As part of the BoatU.S. cooperating group program, ABYC members receive a 50 percent discount on their annual BoatU.S. membership dues, either as a new or renewing member, along with access to other services.
"This unique partnership will allow members of both organizations to fully realize how they can benefit from a vast range of services and information while saving money through dual memberships," ABYC president Skip Burdon said in a statement.
Some of the additional benefits include:
- Discounts on fuel, overnight slips and repairs at more than 900 marinas across the United States
- Marine insurance with revised and lower rates
- Access to the nation's largest on-the-water towing fleet
- Subscription to BoatU.S. magazine
To receive the 50 percent discount on BoatU.S. membership, which is $15 a year instead of $30 (or $20 for international members, compared with $40), ABYC members can click here or call ABYC at (410) 990-4460.
