TowBoatUS recognizes the need to respond to any and all maritime emergencies as they arise. You do not have to be a member to contract for our services. We will be happy to assist you wherever you are and whenever the need arises. Our rates are the most competitive in the industry and costs for services are usually reimbursed by most insurance companies offering marine insurance. Check your individual policy to see if marine towing allowances are offered by your Insurance Company.

In the event of adverse weather ranging from Small Craft to Gale Force winds, the hourly costs will increase an additional $25.00 to $50.00 per hour respectively. These costs are all covered for members with Unlimited Towing Plans saving you major expense in the event of a break down at sea.
