Capt. Ramsey Chason is the new franchise owner of Sea Tow Cape and Islands in Massachusetts.

Chason will lead a crew of six certified captains who are available 24/7 on Cape Cod, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.

“Being on the water reminds me of my childhood running around the Outer Banks of North Carolina and dreaming of working on the water,” Chason said in a statement. “My wife and I strive to create those same memories for our daughters every day through our combined passion of being on the water and also through my career.”

Chason said he has a professional background that combines two decades of experience as a sportfishing captain, along with more than a decade working for North America’s premier environmental services provider and grounded by time spent in earlier years working as an emergency medical technician and as a tow boat captain in Charleston, S.C.

“My crew and I are focused on providing premium customer service to our members and we will continue to build upon the community partnerships that are already established and expand into new partnerships,” Chason said.

Sea Tow Cape and Islands crew uses five vessels, including a 28-foot Zodiac; a 27-foot Brunswick Commercial; a 28-foot HBI; a 28-foot SAFE Boat; and a 22-foot Eastern.
