Sea Tow and Turning Point announce partnership

Sea Tow Services International said it entered into an agreement with Turning Point Propellers. In January 2020, Turning Point’s props will have an activation code that will provide boaters with up to $25 off an annual Sea Tow membership.

“The ultimate goal of both Sea Tow and Turning Point is to provide boaters with peace of mind every time they head out on their favorite waterways,” said Pat Kehoe, Turning Point director of global sales and marketing, in a statement. “With our unique two-piece propeller hub system and lifetime warranty, packaged alongside the added value of a discounted Sea Tow membership, boaters will never have to worry about finding themselves stranded.”

Sea Tow members also will have access to Turning Point webinars designed to educate boaters on propeller technology.

“We’re thrilled to be able to provide our members with these educational webinars,” said Sea Tow CEO Joseph Frohnhoefer III in the statement. “At the end of the day, we want to do everything in our power to ensure boaters have the best possible trip each time they leave the dock, and helping to educate on propeller technology and use will go a long way toward ensuring that.”

The companies will work with multiple Sea Tow captains to test Turning Point propellers and provide field data to the Florida-based manufacturer regarding fuel economy and other data.
