New BoatU.S. mobile app offers
Maximize the power of your BoatU.S. membership with the new BoatU.S. app for smartphones. This completely new app is still the fastest way to call for a tow 24/7, but it now offers all the self-service features previously avail- able only on the BoatUS.com website or through calls to customer service:
Renew your membership, upgrade your towing services, file a claim, check a claim
status, pay bills, request an insurance quote, and more.
The new app, like the old version, will continue to pinpoint your current
location and allow you to share it with friends, deliver up-to-the-moment weather and tide info, and serve as your
digital BoatU.S. membership card. You can also use it to
discover and take advantage of valuable discounts available from thousands of BoatU.S. partners, and to locate
life-jacket loaner sites.
“The new BoatU.S. app is not an update, but some-
thing brand-new with more features than the previous
version,” says Heather Lougheed, vice president and
director of membership programs. “It does everything
the old app does, plus it now has fantastic self-service
options.” Lougheed reminds users that while the old
app will continue to work for a few months longer,
it will not have the new functionality of the new
BoatU.S. app, “so be sure to download the new one.”
The free new BoatU.S. app is available for both
Android and iPhone. Visit BoatUS.com/App for
more information and links to several options for
downloading. Or you can download directly from
the App Store or Google Play by searching for
