Marinalife, the boating community’s first cruising concierge and leading source of marina information, and BoatU.S., the nation’s largest organization of recreational boat owners, announced a partnership today that improves the boating lifestyle for members of both organizations.
Under the partnership, Marinalife members can take advantage of half-priced BoatU.S. membership and discounted “unlimited” on-the-water assistance services provided by BoatU.S.’ TowBoatU.S. and Vessel Assist towing fleets – the largest towing fleets in North America. BoatU.S. members can tap into discounted concierge services by Marinalife, which provides easy online or toll-free booking of transient dockage at over 8,000 marinas. A trove of cruising information, including reliable marina ratings and reviews, customized weather forecasting, approach and navigational tools, tide forecasts, and a marina fuel locator are just some of Marinalife’s additional benefits included with membership.
“This partnership stemmed from a shared mission to make boating more convenient and to remove some of the frustrations” said Marinalife President Joy McPeters. “It’s a win-win situation for both organizations’ members, as well as for the boating industry. Our members will benefit from the opportunity to receive cost-effective towing services through TowBoatU.S. and Vessel Assist, while our valuable travel services will make boating more enjoyable for BoatU.S. members. Whether it’s just one night or a month-long cruise, we know how to secure dockage and get confirmations quickly.”
BoatU.S. President Nancy Michelman said, “The purpose of the partnership is to enhance the boating experience of our 650,000 members and encourage more frequent boat use by providing easy-to-use tools and booking services. Our BoatU.S. towing services are a great addition to Marinalife’s on-the-water travel tools.”
