A Prestigious Recognition


The National Marine Manufacturers Association is accepting nominations for its Hall of Fame Award.

The annual honor began in 1988 to “recognize and honor individuals who have made or continue to make substantial contributions toward the advancement of the marine industry,” NMMA said in a statement.

Past winners include Grady-White Boats president Kris Carroll (last year), Maverick Boat Group’s Scott Deal, Indmar president Chuck Rowe and former NMMA president Thomas J. Dammrich. A complete list of winners can be seen here.

Nominations are being accepted through Aug. 4. Click here for the nomination form.

The Hall of Fame Award will be presented Sept. 28 during the Industry Breakfast at the International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition and Conference.
