Sea Tow offers free trial memberships with Fell Marine partnership

Publish date:

Sea Tow is giving a free 60-day trial membership to boaters who purchase Fell Marine’s MOB+ wireless man overboard products.

“When someone buys any of our products, they’re already thinking about safety,” Fell Marine CEO Christian Frost said in a statement. “By giving them a free trial Sea Tow membership, we’re just taking that to the next level.”

It’s not the first time the two companies have worked together. When Norway-based Fell Marine entered the U.S. market in 2016, Sea Tow was one of its first nationwide partners.

“We’ve always enjoyed a tight-knit relationship with everyone at Fell Marine,” said Sea Tow CEO Joseph Frohnhoefer III. “As soon as I first heard about their wireless engine cutoff devices, I was instantly sold.”

Through that original partnership, Sea Tow members save 15 percent on any MOB+ devices and accessories through the Sea Tow Savings Club.

“Our captains are always moving around their boats during the course of their duty,” said Frohnhoefer. “Whether they’re drawing tow lines, doing a fuel drop or providing a jump start to a member, they’re often away from the helm and, therefore, the physical kill switch. We want to deliver that same peace-of-mind to boaters everywhere, and that’s what this partnership is all about.”
