NMTA is the country's largest regional marine association. Founded in 1947 to fight a proposed special tax on boaters, the Association quickly expanded its vision of a unified industry by pitching a tent on the shores of Lake Union and holding its first boat show. Today, with a membership exceeding 700, participation of individual companies like yours makes business better for all. There's strength in numbers so climb aboard to help yourself and your industry.
