Don’t take our word for it, hear what current members have to say about NMTA:
“I’ve been displaying and attending boat shows throughout the country since 1968. The Seattle Boat Show is the destination boat show on the west coast of the US. Having a presence at the Seattle Boat Show is the best way to promote a marine business in the Northwest. The Show is heads and tails above the rest and I have been to them all.”
Bruce Hedrick – Northwest Yachting Magazine
“Thank you for all your efforts to promote and preserve boating and the industry. I was thinking on my way home last night that it is great to have someone who is so committed to this cause.”
