Faster Sea Tow Response Times in Southern California!

 “We are so excited to have these boats splash. They are going to provide the utmost service to boaters along the coast,” said Capt. Charles Boniols, co-owner of the San Diego and Newport Beach/LA Sea Tow franchises. “Our Captains can get from Catalina Island to Huntington Beach in about an hour, and we have a 15-minute response time from San Diego to the Mexican border. This is a huge uptick in technology and is a real benefit to our members. These boats really mean business.”

Capt. Chris McCarthy, Capt. Boniols’ partner agreed. “These boats are extremely impressive,” he said. “They are 25 feet long, with full cabins and heaters. They are all very similarly rigged, with twin Suzuki 250-horsepower outboards, dual GPS and radar monitors, dual radios—all the standard practices for backups. Our most efficient cruise speed is 35 mph at 3800 rpm, but I’ve hit 54 mph. That is more than enough speed for our Captains to provide the prompt service our members deserve.”
