The BoatU.S. Cooperating Marina program, which offers boaters discounts on fuel, transient slips and repairs, celebrates its 10-year anniversary this year with a record 870 marinas participating across the country.


"As the price of nearly everything is rising, this discount program has become very popular with recreational boaters," cooperating marina program director Jim Schofield, said in a statement.


The program requires marinas or boatyards to offer discounts to boaters carrying a BoatU.S. membership card. This can include up to 10 cents off per gallon of fuel, 25 percent off transient slips or 15 percent off repairs.


"About 300 of our cooperating marinas offer some sort of fuel discount, which will certainly be popular this summer," Schofield said. "The savings provided in one fill-up could easily pay for the annual $19 BoatU.S. membership dues."


Marinas participating in the program are listed in the annual BoatU.S. member services directory and can have their own page on the site. Cooperative advertising dollars are also offered so marinas can take advantage of local advertising opportunities. On-site, point-of-sale signage and flags are also included.


Marinas interested in learning more about the program can call Schofield at (888) 333-2628 or email
