Sea Tow Services International and Southport Boats have teamed on a “Peace of Mind” partnership, offering all 2022 Southport models with Sea Tow’s Gold Card that includes two years of coverage.

The Sea Tow membership will give new Southport boat owners access to 24/7 nationwide coverage with towing, fuel delivery, jump starts and more.

“Most new cars come standard with roadside protection, so it makes sense boats should have on-water coverage,” Kristen Frohnhoefer, president of Sea Tow, said in a statement.

Southport builds fishing boats ranging from 27 to 33 feet at its 140,000 sq. ft. production facility in South Gardiner, Maine.

“We build boats that give families the confidence to enjoy boating to its fullest,” said

Jonathan Kirby, marketing and sales director for Southport. “We feel that teaming up

with Sea Tow is an extension of that philosophy. Knowing our customers will be able to

make one phone call to receive assistance, should they need it, when they are out on

the water will help make the experience more carefree, and that translates to more fun

for everyone.”
