BoatUS Joins Texas Team Trail
New partnership, contingency program will add even more ways to win in 2016
(Aug 14, 2015 - MOUNTAIN HOME, AR.) While the 2016 season is still months away, the Texas Team Trail presented by Cabela's (TXTT) continues to make headlines. Coming off a record year with boat counts on the rise, the popular bass fishing trail has officially joined forces with the Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatU.S.). The partnership marks the latest addition to a strong group of sponsors and comes complete with a custom contingency program offering TXTT anglers even more ways to win in 2016.
"This new partnership is a great fit," said TXTT Tournament Director Mike Hastings. "Many of our anglers already carry a BoatU.S. membership and recognize the value it holds. We're excited to introduce even more anglers to the BoatU.S. program."
BoatU.S. offers on the water and on the road towing services provided by the nation's largest towing fleet and insures billions of dollars worth of members' boats offering unparalleled service at competitive prices. BoatU.S. also offers time and money saving benefits to their over half a million members through strategic partnerships within the marine industry.
Since its founding in 1966, BoatU.S. has also worked to provide quality service, savings and representation to the recreational boating community. Today, BoatU.S. stands as the nation's most powerful advocate for advancing the interests of boaters everywhere.
As part of the agreement, the Texas Team Trail will also develop a custom contingency program rewarding TXTT anglers that carry BoatU.S. marine insurance policies. BoatU.S. offers coverage in all 50 states to boat owners with a US address and is available for most all boat types. In addition to the exceptional service and claims handling, TXTT anglers with BoatU.S. marine insurance policies will soon be eligible for bonus payout at all TXTT events.
"We're excited to work with the Texas Team Trail," said Program Coordinator Dustin King. "Tournament anglers represent a big part of our membership and this is a great opportunity to highlight the benefits that come with being a BoatU.S. member. We look forward to kicking off the 2016 season."
The Texas Team Trail presented by Cabela's consists of four regular-season events and a year-end championship. The championship is a two-day tournament open to teams who have fished all four regular-season events.
