The Sea Tow Foundation and its Boating Safety Advisory Council announced six winners today of their National Boating Industry Safety Awards which recognizes the best boating safety work in the for-profit section of the recreational boating industry. Sponsored for the second year by KICKER Marine Audio, the six top contest winners were revealed in a special awards recognition segment held during the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas national Dealer Week.
MarineMax was recognized as a third-year winner and took home repeat honors for the Top Marine Retailer Award with More Than Three Locations.
“MarineMax utilized multiple methods of outreach including face-to-face opportunities in their locations along with printed flyers, social media, e-mailed newsletters, YouTube, podcasts, and their website,” said Kulp. “Everything was well-produced, professional and easy to digest. They also heavily promoted National Safe Boating Week and focused messaging on the importance of life jacket wear and designating a sober skipper.”
“This year’s competition reflects a strong and growing commitment among the for-profit segment of the marine industry to actively promote and advocate for boating safety,” she added. “Our judges were overwhelmed by the quality of the submissions
and the excellent contributions of many companies who are committed to making the waterways safer for everyone.”
“The Sea Tow Foundation appreciates the efforts of our council members in judging this year’s competition, along with the continued support of our title sponsor KICKER Marine Audio in making this year’s competition possible,” she said.
