Sea Tow Launches New Mobile App

The push button life just got easier for boaters. Sea Tow Services International Inc., best known as Your Road Service at Sea, has launched a new mobile app that allows both members and non-members to contact the company’s 24-hour dispatch center with just a tap in case they need a tow, fuel delivery, jump start, ungrounding or another type of assistance while boating. App users can also easily share GPS coordinates, thus helping captains locate boaters quicker and more efficiently.

The new app, called ‘Sea Tow’, is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play, and it replaces the company’s first launched app in 2012. The app is available for download in the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. However, if the app is already downloaded to a device, it will work anywhere in the Caribbean as well as worldwide wherever there is a usable cell signal or connection.

“We think the new app will be an invaluable tool for boaters everywhere, especially for our members in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands,” says Kristen Frohnhoefer, president of the Southold, NY-headquartered company. “No matter where their boat takes them, they’ll be able to quickly and easily share GPS coordinates and contact Sea Tow’s 24/7 dispatch at the tap of a finger. The Caribbean has such a vibrant boating community, and we believe this new app will give boaters the peace of mind on the water they truly deserve.” seatow.com/app
