As a trade association, we have a single priority – helping our members be more successful. Amid constantly changing times, we’re continuously responding with services our members demand and increasing the value your membership dues purchase for you.

Back in 1957, a handful of boat dealers decided to join together to organize an indoor winter boat show in Cleveland serving the northern Ohio market. Today, that simple association includes about 100-member marine businesses and is fully engaged in marketing programs, educational efforts and legislative initiatives.
