“Stay Local Boat MA” Program Enters 10th Season

The Massachusetts Marine Trades Association (MMTA) has relaunched its STAY LOCAL BOAT MA Transient Boater Referral Program with 18 marinas participating this year. Now celebrating its 10thyear, this reciprocal program encourages seasonal marina customers to visit participating destination marinas in exchange for reduced transient dockage rates. Participating marinas are given a discount card to hand out to their seasonal boaters as well as logo placement on the website www.staylocalboatma.com.

Designed to promote the concept of “vacationing at home”, the Stay Local program keeps boating-related tax dollars local while rewarding customer loyalty and promoting each participating facility. Stay Local is mutually beneficial to participating facilities and their customers. “Boaters with discount cards are inspired to navigate the Massachusetts coast and explore destination marinas along the way, while at the same time saving money,” stated program founder Randall Lyons, MMTA Executive Director. The program encourages group travel with increased dockage discounts between 10% and 20% based on the total number of boats traveling together.

MMTA thanks the following Massachusetts destination marinas for keeping boating local by enrolling in the 2018 Stay Local Boat MA program:

Brewer Green Harbor Marina of Marshfield; Brewer Plymouth Marine; Constitution Marina of Charlestown; Marina Bay Boston of Quincy; Newburyport Marinas; Hingham Shipyard Marinas; Brewer Fiddler Cove Marina of Falmouth; Brewer Onset Bay Marine of Buzzards Bay; Burr Brothers Boats of Marion, Cape Ann’s Marina and Resort of Gloucester; Charlestown Marina; Crocker’s Boat Yard of Manchester; Glover Wharf Municipal Marina of Beverly; Kingman Yacht Center of Cataumet; Manchester Marine; Parker’s Boatyard of Cataumet; Provincetown Marina and Steamboat Wharf Marina of Hull.
