Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin, Ltd., said it is working with Sea Tow Services, International, Inc. to provide members and franchise operators exclusive offers and product training to improve boater safety.
Sea Tow operates more than 110 independently-owned franchise locations offering towing and other on-water assistance to boaters in the United States and Puerto Rico.
Sea Tow franchisees will receive access to Garmin marine electronics, including its flagship GPSMAP Chartplotter series, full line of radome and open array radars. Franchisees will also receive offers on cartography products and boating app subscriptions from Navionics, a Garmin brand.
“Garmin and Sea Tow share a commitment to making recreational boating and fishing safer and more enjoyable every time you leave the dock,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president, global consumer sales. “From boat towing to jump starts and fuel deliveries, Sea Tow has been providing non-emergency services to boaters for decades, and we’re proud to support their captains as they perform vital job functions for their membership each and every day.”
“Sea Tow captains are there to help boaters when it matters most, so it’s essential they are equipped with best-in-class electronics and cartography,” said Kristen Frohnhoefer, Sea Tow president. “As smart boaters, our Sea Tow members also value education on how to use their on-board electronics and knowing that they can save on upgrading their cartography, both of which help them have a safer and more enjoyable time on the water.”
