The United States will have a group presence April 25-May 1 at the Rio Boat Show, with 16 U.S. companies confirmed to display, the National Marine Manufacturers Association announced.

“Brazil remains a top export market for our members, and it’s a tough market to navigate,” NMMA export development director Julie Balzano said in a statement. “The NMMA has taken the lead on organizing a USA Pavilion to enable our members the opportunity to efficiently pursue business opportunities in this growing market.”

Joining the NMMA are 16 members: Camco Manufacturing; Captain Harry's Fishing Supply; E&P Marine Inc.; Grady-White Boats; HydroHoist Marine Group; International Marine Certification Institute; Lewmar Inc.; Magic Tilt Trailers Inc.; Marquis Yachts LLC; Miami Nautique International; N.C. Department of Commerce; P.Y.I. Inc.; S2Yachts (Tiara Yachts and Pursuit Boats); Scout Boats; Solas Science & Engineering Co. Ltd.; and Stingray Boat Co.

The U.S. Commercial Service in Brazil is supporting the NMMA’s efforts. To open the Rio Boat Show, the NMMA, with the support of the Commercial Service, is hosting a breakfast seminar on April 25 featuring speakers from BR Marinas, Boat Brasil Media Group and Lanchas Venturas, one of Brazil’s leading boatbuilders. The focus of the seminar is educating U.S. marine companies on Brazil’s boating industry, including opportunities, challenges and legal considerations.

At the conclusion of the show, NMMA members are participating in a one-day site visit to Marina Verolme, one of Brazil’s most prestigious marinas and located in the popular boating region of Angra dos Reis, to enhance their market research efforts and evaluate Brazil’s recreational boating industry from a user perspective.
