Sea Tow Services International, the world’s largest professional marine assistance organization, honored more than 35 of its franchisees at a gala awards ceremony banquet that capped its 28th Annual Meeting, held November 15 to 17 at the Marriott Sanibel Harbour Resort in Fort Myers, Florida.

“Thanks go to my team of experienced Sea Tow captains who help me provide a high level of service to boaters in the area,” Captain Maass said.

The most coveted of the evening’s awards, “Sea Tow Franchise of the Year”, was presented to Sea Tow South Shore, Massachusetts. Owned by Captain Ethan Maass, this seasoned Sea Tow franchise services recreational boaters and commercial mariners from Cohasset to Sandwich, including the towns of Scituate, Marshfield, Duxbury, Kingston and Plymouth.

“Captain Maass has lead his team at Sea Tow South Shore to be one of the finest in the network. From on-water operations to membership growth, his operation is top-notch,” said Captain Joe Frohnhoefer, CEO of Sea Tow Services International Inc. “Captain Maass is also highly involved in overall Sea Tow operations, having served as chairman of Sea Tow’s National Marketing Council for several years, and now serving on the board of C-PORT, the national association for the marine assistance industry. It is our pleasure to recognize the accomplishments of Captain Maass and his team.”

In addition to accepting the Franchise of the Year Award, Captain Maass was called to the podium a second time when Sea Tow Chief Administrative Officer Kristen Frohnhoefer presented awards for 5 Years of Continuous Growth to 10 Sea Tow Franchises, including Sea Tow South Shore.

“Thanks go to my team of experienced Sea Tow captains, who help me provide a high level of service to boaters in the area,” Captain Maass said. “It’s been wonderful getting to know the boaters on the South Shore over these past 8 years. The captains who have come out of the local boating community to work for me have been instrumental in helping me provide the best possible assistance to boaters.”
