SeaSense plans springtime sales promotion

Publish date:

Marine accessories manufacturer SeaSense by Unified Marine announced plans for a National Product Pricing Program timed to launch in April, the start of the boating season in much of the country.

The promotion, which will run four times this year, will feature groupings of specially priced, value-packaged SeaSense products.

“These are innovative, new patented or patent-pending items, most of which have been developed over the last two years by our dedicated research-and-development team,” Unified Marine president and CEO David Nirenberg said in a statement. “They are a testament to our ongoing commitment to develop new and exciting boating products, as was evidenced by the opening last year of our new Bonita Springs, Fla. R&D facility.”

Each product grouping will be offered for 30 days and will be available nationally through select marine retail, online and sporting goods outlets. Boaters also will receive a 10 percent rebate coupon good on their next purchase of a SeaSense product.

A free 60-day Sea Tow membership will be offered with each SeaSense product warranty registration.
