Sea Tow Delaware River under new ownership


Capt. Karl Leinheiser is the new owner of Sea Tow Delaware River, based in Burlington Township, N.J. Leinheiser, 39, took over operations in February and will cover 90 miles of the Delaware River from Trenton, N.J., to the Salem Nuclear Power Plant.

Leinheiser replaces Capt. Ken Factor, who currently runs two Sea Tow franchises in New Hampshire.

“I am happy for the opportunity and I look forward to it,” Leinheiser said. “I hope to build on what we have here and make our operation even better. I worked under Capt. Factor all of last season, and I grew up on both sides of the river, so this is my home.”

Leinheiser and his wife, Heather, live in Burlington Township.

“I rotate in my captains so they are not bombarded. I will take the brunt of the work as franchise owner and operator, including the off-hours and weekends. I am 100 percent committed to ensuring coverage on the water,” Leinheiser said.

His fleet includes two 25-foot Parker pilothouse boats and a 20-foot center console Boston Whaler and all the boats can be trailered to access to any part the coverage area.
