How do I sign up and what information do I need?
- Signing up is easy and can be completed in just a few minutes. We accept membership applications online or by phone at 207-800-0200. When signing up, you’ll be asked for the name, address and phone number of the person whose name appears on the boat registration(s), the year, make, length, color, name, registration or documentation number, and the hull and engine type of each vessel.
- Additionally, we’ll ask you for home port information regarding the primary vessel, specifically if the boat is trailered, kept at a marina, or docked at home on the lake. Following this, we’ll ask you for the name of the boat ramp or marina you use most frequently.
- Online or phone membership applications require payment via a credit or debit card. Payment may be made using Visa, MasterCard, or Discover.
Tow Sebago offers a discount for customers who own more than one boat. Remember, your membership is for services specific for a single vessel, and we don’t want you left adrift! Each additional boat, be it a PWC, another power boat, or a sailboat, can be covered for an additional $100 per vessel. In order to qualify, each boat must be registered to the same person.
We offer a 10% discount for military and first responders, please call us directly for details and verification.
Tow Sebago reserves the right to ask for boat registration at the time of service.
If intoxicated or abusive towards any staff member or captain of Tow Sebago, we have the right to cancel membership without reimbursement.
