Garmin & Sea Tow Unite to Improve Boating Safety


A strategic alliance with a leading international marine assistance provider will provide members with Garmin product discounts and safety-enhancing training.

Garmin is excited to announce that it is working with Sea Tow Services International to provide members and franchise operators exclusive offers and product training to improve boater safety. 

Sea Tow franchisees will receive access to special offers on a variety of 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. Sea Tow members will enjoy access to exclusive education on Garmin and Navionics products and preferred cartography pricing.

Sea Tow operates more than 110 independently-owned franchise locations that provide towing and other on-water assistance to boaters in the United States and Puerto Rico. 

“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 of 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 onboard 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.” 

Whether outfitting a new boat or upgrading existing electronics, Sea Tow members can take advantage of special offers and educational webinars on a full suite of Garmin marine electronics.
