Triump Tapped To Outfit Sea Tow With Boats

Friday, April 05, 2002
Triumph Boats Inc. has completed an agreement with Sea Tow Services International to market and distribute a boat that provides the ultimate commercial towing package for Sea Tow franchisees and the Marine Assistance Industry. Captain Joe Frohnhoefer says, "It's the ultimate boat for us, in construction and function. Triumph's Roplene™ technology boat can withstand adverse conditions better than any other boat available today. We can run into rocks, hit submerged objects and floating debris without any concerns. The Triumph not only meets the high standards of Sea Tow, it exceeds them." Jim White, President of Triumph Boats explains, "The same benefits enjoyed by Sea Tow in commercial use are built into every Triumph boat, providing our customers with the best level of durability, performance and low maintenance." Triumph and Sea Tow collaborated in designing a commercial boat that utilizes a standard 210 Center Console model. The Triumph boat for Sea Tow was built using a yellow marine grade polyethylene, and the color is molded throughout the material. It was converted for commercial use by adding an anodized aluminum wheelhouse, T-top, light mast, bow and stern tow posts, along with a stern crash bar. Triumph boats are designed so that if they hit rocks, docks and submerged objects, there is very little damage. They are designed so that they won't chip, crack or blister and will not fade due to sunlight, and, they are recyclable.
