BoatPAC, the federal political action committee of the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas and National Marine Manufacturers Association, announced today that it exceeded its $250,000 fundraising benchmark, bringing in more than $252,000 from 392 donors.

That number is up from $202,000 and 348 donors last year, and marks the highest single-year fundraising total in the BoatPAC’s history.

“Today, because of our nearly 400 supporters and their commitment to advancing the recreational boating industry’s advocacy efforts, we celebrate BoatPAC’s largest fundraising year on record,” said Erica Crocker, NMMA senior director of political engagement and advocacy, in a statement. “We are beyond grateful to everyone who made this possible and are excited to get back to work so we can set a new record next year.”

BoatPAC is setting its 2020 fundraising goal at $325,000.
