 It's like "Roadside Service" for the water!


Products and Services

MARINE ASSIST  is a full service marine salvage and in-water towage company. It is our primary business, not some side line hobby. We raise sunken boats locally and nationally and provide the complete package, not just a piece.

Marine Assist Association, Inc. is a network of independent marine towing, assistance and salvage service providers in various places around the country. For more information on the Marine Assist Association, Inc., please visit their website at  www.marineassist.com .

Before purchsing any of the below plans, please read the Terms and Conditions page.

We accept Visa, Master Card, and Discover cards directly over the phone. Checks will also be accepted for memberships, however the memberships will not be active until the payment clears.

Understand, what we are offering is like a "service contract", or a kind of "specific item insurance". You have to have a membership paid in advance in order to receive free service. It is not possible to buy a membership at the time service is needed and expect free service. If you do not have an active membership with us, we will still provide service for you on an hourly basis. Call for our current rates.

Marine salvage work is not covered by our membership plan, but usually by the vessel's hull insurance company. We do our best to work with all insurance companies, but we do not bill them directly. The vessel owner is responsible for those charges in full and then getting reimbursed from their insurance company.


Choose your plan from these 2 below.
