Sea Tow®, the nation's leading on-water marine assistance provider, is pleased to announce that Sea Tow® Portland/Midcoast, Maine has expanded its territory and added a Sea Tow vessel in Kennebunk which will operate from DiMillo's Marina. Boasting the closest marina to downtown Kennebunk, DiMillo's is located at 4 Doanes Wharf Road, just south of the famed Dock Square on the Kennebunk River.

This is the second territory expansion of Sea Tow Portland/Midcoast since entrepreneur and business owner Steve Arnold purchased the franchise in 2023. Their fleet of customized, fully equipped Sea Tow vessels will now be strategically positioned at marinas in Kennebunk, South Portland, Yarmouth, Naples, Sebago Lake, Bath and Boothbay Harbor. Sea Tow's crew of licensed Coast Guard captains maintain an average response time of under an hour. Always ready to help, captains regularly patrol and assist boaters in the coastal waters of Saco Bay, Portland Harbor, Casco Bay, Freeport, Brunswick, Harpswell and Boothbay region. In addition, they also cover the Saco, New Meadows, Kennebec, Sheepscot, and Damariscotta inland rivers, as well as freshwater areas including Sebago Lake, Long Lake and Brandy Pond.

With a Sea Tow membership, boaters pay one annual rate and receive the most comprehensive member benefits available 24/7/365. Members receive priority service, including free boat towing, dock-to-dock towing on all covered vessels, nationwide coverage, fuel delivery, battery jump starts and exclusive member savings and discounts.

Arnold is the owner of Marina Holdings LLC, which is a family of businesses dedicated to helping people enjoy time on the water in the way that best fits their budget and lifestyle. They do this by providing highly trained and dedicated employees, quality products and reliable services. Through the Marina Holdings LLC portfolio of businesses boaters can meet their boating needs including sales, slips, service, storage, rentals, boat club, boat training, on water transportation and towing and salvage. The Marina Holdings LLC portfolio includes Sea Tow Portland/Midcoast, Yarmouth Boat Yard, Moose Landing Marina, Freedom Boat Club of Maine, Maine Boating Academy and Portland Sea Taxi by Sea Tow, an on-water taxi service in Portland Harbor and throughout the islands of Casco Bay.

"With the expansion and addition of this new vessel in Kennebunkport we will greatly enhance our ability to service this very popular boating region," explained Arnold, owner of Sea Tow Portland/Midcoast. "Previously our closest Sea Tow vessel was stationed in South Portland, so the response time for boaters needing help in this area will be reduced significantly."

"We have an excellent working relationship with Sea Tow from our location in Portland and welcome having one of their tow boats at our facility," stated Marina Manager Luke DiMillo. "It's a huge benefit not only for our marina tenants and guests, but anyone boating in the river."

At the forefront of on-water assistance since 1983, Sea Tow marked its 40thanniversary in business in 2023. In 500+ ports nationwide including the continental U.S., Alaska and Puerto Rico, Sea Tow is a member-driven, franchise-based business. Technological innovation has been a large driver of Sea Tow's evolution and expansion in recent years. Having broken barriers in the industry, it is the premier provider of non-emergency on-water assistance including towing, fuel delivery, battery jumps and ungroundings, as well as salvage and recovery services including response to catastrophic events and marine spill response. Sea Tow is "Your Road Service at Sea®."
