New towing program for rental-boat clubs

BoatU.S. Towing Services introduced a new towing and assistance program for rental-boat clubs.

"We are giving rental clubs a better way to protect their investment and ensure their member's experience remains positive," said Ann Sooby, marketing supervisor for BoatU.S. Towing Services, in a statement.

To date, seven clubs representing 53 locations have signed up, including Freedom Boat Club, SailTime, Carefree Boat Club, Olympic Circle Sailing Club, Chesapeake Boating Club and Club Nautique. Boats in a club's fleet are enrolled in a BoatU.S. towing plan, which starts at $135 depending on location.

The club's members receive the same service as BoatU.S. members, and when the towing invoice is presented, the rental boat club member simply signs the bill and walks away. BoatU.S. picks up the tab at no cost to the club member or any further cost to the club.

Hourly or daily rental boat businesses that do not require membership are not included in the program. For information, contact Ann Sooby at (800) 888-4869, ext. 3826 or RSooby@BoatUS.com .
