Not just boats
In terms of revenue, a large proportion is builders and distributors of boats – big and small.
But we represent all other major marine sectors and services – equally.
Are you being served?
We are a trade Federation with strong representation of our members and their industry.
But we also support and advise consumers through –
- Encouraging people to enjoy the sea, rivers and inland waterways
- Increasing awareness of opportunities on the water via Boat Shows and our consumer project On The Water
- Promoting the career opportunities in our industry
- Providing advice and assistance via our Environment and Boating Facilities, Training and Technicalteams
Who we don’t represent?
We don’t represent the sporting interests of the boating industry. We believe that’s best achieved by the sport’s governing bodies and national authorities but we work closely with them to achieve the best for our members and the consumer.
We don’t represent large commercial shipping, defence or the commercial fishing industry.
