Safe/Sea Premier Membership Details
Regardless of whether you're a seasoned cruiser or just getting into the great sport of boating, a Safe/Sea Premier Membership provides the perfect marine towing and assistance coverage for nearly every Rhode Island area boater!
Designed specifically for the Rhode Island boater, Safe/Sea Premier is best suited to boaters that spend the majority of their boating time in Rhode Island Waters, including Narragansett Bay, the Sakonnet River, Mt. Hope Bay, the Taunton River, Rhode Island Sound, and Block Island Sound. If your homeport is in any of these places, Point Judith, or Block Island, Safe/Sea Premier will fit you like a glove!
On-The-Water Boat Towing Benefits
As a Safe/Sea Premier member, you are provided with free towing for your vessel if it becomes disabled, runs out of fuel, or has a dead battery while away from its home dock or mooring. Your vessel will be restarted or towed to its home dock, mooring, or port of your choice in Rhode Island waters when your vessel’s disablement occurs in Rhode Island waters.
If your disablement occurs outside Rhode Island waters, Safe/Sea will arrange and pay for towing service to the nearest safe port from your disablement, up to a maximum limit of $4,000.00 per year.
Available Enhancements to Safe/Sea Premier Membership
In addition to the great free towing benefits included with your membership, you can save more than you pay for your annual membership by using these great discounts.
Our 5¢ per gallon Fuel Discount Program lets Safe/Sea Members save on what has become one of the biggest expenses in boating: fuel. Using your discount is just as easy as it is to use any of your other Safe/Sea benefits. Simply pull up to a participating fuel dock, present your valid Safe/Sea membership card, and ask for your 5 cent per gallon discount. It is up to each individual participating fuel dock whether or not they will allow the discount on credit purchases. Cash purchases should be eligible for the discount at all participating fuel docks.
Our 25% Transient Dockage Discount Program offers Safe/Sea Members another great way to save money while boating. To use your 25% Transient Dockage Discount, simply present your Safe/Sea membership card when you check in at any participating marina and ask for your discount. Remember, you cannot claim the discount if you are arriving with reservations; it is valid only on a space-available basis. Also, it is not valid for seasonal dockage; nightly transient dockage is the only type of charge affected by the 25% Dockage Discount Program. Nevertheless, if you ever stay overnight at a marina while cruising, this benefit can save you tons of money!
As a Safe/Sea member, you can even save money on retail boating supplies. Newport Nautical Supply offers a permanent 10% discount to all Safe/Sea Members, and other boating retailers offer periodic discounts to our members during the year.
More Benefits to Enhance Your Boating Lifestyle
The Safe/Sea Free Action Boat Photo Program offers our members a great way show off their pride & joy! Every year, Safe/Sea holds 2 or 3 free photo sessions for members to have photos taken of their boats while underway by a professional photographer.
Our Safe/Sea Helpline Newsletter is published four times per year to keep our members informed about what's happening on the Rhode Island boating scene. Each issue contains local boating news, information about your Safe/Sea Membership, and usually some special offers from local marine businesses.
Are you going to be late getting back to port? Do you need to call your spouse so they won't worry, but your cell phone is dead? Not a problem, if you're a Safe/Sea Member! Just call our Dispatch Center on the radio and we'll make the call for you.
