MMTA Promotes Local Boating

The STAY LOCAL BOAT MA Transient Boater Referral Program has begun its ninth year.

Promoted by the Massachusetts Marine Trades Association, the program encourages boaters to visit local destination marinas where they receive a discount, from ten to twenty percent off on dockage. The town surrounding the marinas reap the benefits of more tourism dollars from boaters who enjoy local restaurants, shops and facilities.

Boaters receive a discount card that includes a list of the participating marina. This year fifteen marinas have already enrolled.
