FLIPPIN, Ark. – Thanks to a new partnership with the Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatU.S.), any new 2016 Stratos boat purchased through an authorized dealer during the model year will include a complimentary one-year membership with BoatU.S., complete with around-the-clock support and discounts at businesses and marinas across the country.
Since its founding in 1966, BoatU.S. has worked to provide quality service, savings and representation to the recreational boating community. Boasting more than half a million members, BoatU.S. is the nation's most powerful advocate for advancing the interests of boaters everywhere.
As BoatU.S. members, new Stratos owners will have access to the nation's largest on-the-water boat towing service with over 600 towboats standing by to assist at over 300 locations across the country. New owners will also benefit from 25 other BoatUS. services including discounts at more than 1,000 business and marinas as well as a subscription to BoatU.S. Magazine.
"You can never have too much security," said Stratos Boats Brand Manager Jason Bragg. "Combine that with the potential savings and service benefits and this is a great opportunity to deliver even more value to Stratos customers."
All new Stratos owners will also receive unlimited BoatU.S. trailer assistance in addition to the standard membership. This around-the-clock service provides roadside towing assistance for both the boat trailer and tow vehicle up to 100 miles to a repair facility of the member's choice. Other benefits include no-cost labor for flat tire delivery, fuel delivery, lock out assistance or jump start service.
"Unexpected things can happen on the water or while towing your boat," said BoatU.S. Vice President of Towing Services Adam Wheeler. "A BoatU.S. membership helps eliminate that hassle and maximize time on the water. We're excited to partner with Stratos and look forward to working together. "
