The Holiday Gift for the Boater: BoatUS Membership with Towing

ALEXANDRIA, VA, November 8, 2016 — Have a boater on your holiday gift list? Look no further. The organization that makes boating better, Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS), has three holiday gift ideas.


A $24 annual membership from BoatUS is a very affordable holiday gift.

The gift of on-water towing: Give the gift of an on-water Unlimited TowBoatUS Towing Membership Plan for saltwater boaters for just $149 a year that includes BoatUS membership. For freshwater boaters the price is just $72. Both provide 24/7 dispatch and your boater will never have to pay out of pocket for a tow home or soft ungrounding. Included with annual BoatUS membership is a subscription to BoatUS Magazine as well as exclusive fuel, transient slip and repair discounts, and savings on boating gear at West Marine stores.

The gift for roadside breakdowns: A stocking stuffer that offers big benefits to a trailer boater, consider gifting a BoatUS annual membership with Unlimited Trailer Assist for $38 that takes care of roadside breakdowns. One hundred miles of free on road towing for both a disabled boat trailer and its tow vehicle to a safe location or repair shop are included, along with lockout, flat tire, battery jump and fuel drop-off service.

The gift that makes boating better: Annual BoatUS membership for just $24 includes over 25 benefits and services including round the clock on water or roadside dispatch, a BoatUS Magazine subscription, exclusive fuel, transient slip and repair discounts, and savings on boating gear at West Marine stores. Your boater can also take advantage of BoatUS’ advocacy efforts, safe boating and clean water programs.

All of these gifts can be found at or by calling 1-800-395-2628. For each gift membership purchased from now through December 31, 2016, the giver’s name will be entered in a drawing to win a $200 West Marine gift card.
