Do You Have Enough Towing?

Commercial towing companies charge based on “Portal-to-Portal”. In simplest terms, they charge from the time they leave their port until the time that they return. These charges average between $150 and $200 per hour! The distance you breakdown from your home port is of no matter. It is the distance you breakdown from the towers homeport. So, even if you only boat close to your port, if the tower’s port is 10 miles away, your cost could exceed the expected.

Soft-Ungroundings – In addition to “Portal-to-Portal” and hourly towing charges, if you find yourself bumped onto a sandbar, non-members may also be charged up to $20.00 per foot of your vessels length to be pulled free. The ungrounding fee is NOT based on the time it takes to pull you free, but rather the length of your boat.

It all adds up:

Scenario – You run soft-aground 15 miles from the TowBoatUS Homeport in your 24ft. vessel.

Example Non-Member Rates:

Time (portal to portal) Rate Cost
1.5 hours to scene $250.00 per hour $370.00
