American Marine Services, LLC.
a Tow Boat U.S. Service Provider

American Marine Services, LLC is a Family Owned Business that has been providing service to BoatU.S. Members along the West Coast of Florida since May 2000.

We were founded on two guiding principals: Absolute Integrity in everything we say and do and Always do what is right for the customer. We have grown our business to become the largest BoatU.S. service provider in the United States. With fourteen boats and sixteen Captains, we provide world class service in an area along the Gulf Coast of Florida from Egmont Key to Cedar Key, which includes all of Tampa Bay.

Each year our Dispatch Center in Largo handles over 2,750 calls for help from both Members that have Unlimited Towing with services fully covered and Non-Nembers, that must pay out of pocket with either cash or a credit card. In either case, if you are near shore, you will find a bright Red Towboat arriving to your location to offer assistance in usually an hour or less.




Our Coverage

We routinely provide on-the-water service out to 50NM Offshore for Unlimited TowBoatU.S. Members when they are on on a vessel they own, a vessel they borrowed or rented. See the TowBoatU.S. Service Agreement for complete details. Recovery of vessels from beyond 50NM Offshore are handled on a case-by-case basis and require special considerations to ensure a safe recovery.

Our VHF radio towers sit high in the sky. We monitor channel 16, hail us directly by saying "TowBoatU.S. this is Vessel [xxxx]," and we’ll take you to our working frequency. Our highest tower sits at 370ft above sea level in Pasco County, our South St. Petersburg at 290ft, and Yanketown at 120ft above sea level.
