GROW BOATING ACCOMPLISHMENTS
 

GROW BOATING ACCOMPLISHMENTS

REGIONAL
The Grow Boating Program serves the NMTA's core purpose — to increase the number of boaters in the Northwest. Since 2003, NMTA has spent more than $1.6 million to promote boating in the Pacific Northwest. NMTA's Grow Boating program is funded through a surcharge on square footage rented during the Seattle Boat Show each January.

The NMTA Grow Boating Commitee oversees the management and allocation of NMTA's regional Grow Boating fund, and determines what programs, events and promotions should be undertaken to encourage boating in the Northwest.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS:

  • Promoted fishing events and opportunities to more than 60,000 participants in derbies as part of the www.NorthwestSalmonDerbySeries.com. Nearly every participating derby has enjoyed significant increase in participation since the inception of the derby series in 2004.
  • NMTA’s Grow Boating public relations efforts and Samuelson Communications have generated hundreds of positive boating and fishing segments for television and radio that have aired locally on KING-5, KOMO-4, FOX-Q13 and 710KIRO-AM as well as many other major networks, and print and online publications across the Pacific Northwest.
  • Provided hundreds of boat rides to thousands of people during free boat ride events held in greater Puget Sound region.
  • Provided sailboat rides to hundreds of people during the Downtown Sailing Series. Attracted many more people interested in going for a sailboat ride during the summer and early fall.
  • Supported local boating clubs, youth and non-profit boating programs through the distribution of grant funds aimed at growing boating.
