People often ask the question, what is a salvage?

 

Understanding the difference between towing and salvage can save boaters money and aggravation.  Historically and legally, salvage is any voluntary and successful rescue of a boat, its equipment and/or its passengers from a peril while on the water.  BoatU.S. however, narrows this definition.  When contracting for towing services on behalf of its over half a million members, it requires that marine assistance companies distinguish between simple towing and/or soft groundings and the more serious and expensive salvage efforts where distress or danger exist.

 

The distinction between towing and salvage is reflected in the different types of programs available to boaters.  Towing assistance, like the pre-paid service available to BoatUS members from the TowBoatUS fleet, provides help for breakdowns and light groundings.  The far more expensive salvage claims are covered only by yacht insurance policies.   All boaters should review their marine insurance coverage with their agent.

 

If you  encounter a problem, our staff will be happy  to work with your insurance company on your behalf.
