Beginning with the 2016 model year, the National Marine Manufacturers Association will require membership in order to participate in the NMMA Boat and Yacht Certification program.

This change comes from an effort to further align boat manufacturers that participate in NMMA programs with the full services and benefits of NMMA membership and the Grow Boating initiative, according to the NMMA newsletter Currents.

Previously, manufacturers that were not NMMA members could participate in the program while paying increased annual fees and inspection rates. Current non-member certified manufacturers will have through the end of the 2015 model year to join the NMMA to retain their NMMA Certified status.
