MarineMax debuts summer burgee campaign

MarineMax said it has launched a “United by Water” burgee campaign to promote boating and boating enthusiasts.

Boaters are encouraged to obtain a United by Water burgee from their local MarineMax store and post pictures of themselves, friends, pets and family having fun this summer to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, using the hashtag #showusyourburgee.

“Whether they enjoy waterskiing, wake surfing, cruising to exotic locations, diving a reef or catching fish, all boaters share the H2O gene,” Chuck Cashman, MarineMax vice president, East Operations, said in a statement. “The United by Water burgee is a symbol that all boaters are tied together through shared joyful experiences. And boaters innately understand that being on a boat simply takes you away from the everyday pressures and creates opportunities to bond with those that matter the most, your family and friends.”

The burgees are free and available at all MarineMax stores. Anyone can participate, including non-customers.

MarineMax said the campaign is not a contest and there are no prizes. However, occasionally throughout the summer the company may highlight exceptional or unique pictures that capture the spirit of the campaign and may give the person posting the picture a token of appreciation.

“Fly your burgee on your boat, take it on vacation or when you go fishing and snap pictures with your burgee wherever and whenever you are having summer fun,” Cashman said.
