Sea Tow Services International


Sea Tow is a franchise-based international marine assistance organization headquartered in Southold, N.Y. Their company was established in 1983 by Capt. Joseph Frohnhoefer, founder and CEO, after the U.S. Coast Guard ceased responding to non-emergency calls for assistance. The business began, quite simply, with a single boat and a wooden 6"x 6" tow post. Since then, Sea Tow has grown exponentially. They have a thriving franchise network with over 121 locations throughout the United States, Australia, Europe, the Bahamas and Puerto Rico. This network represents nearly 1,000 captains, crew and professional support staff who are standing by -- 24 hours a day -- to serve the recreational boating community.
