The Virginia Marine Trades Association (VMTA) is a non-profit trade association organized to promote and support Virginia’s recreational marine industry. The members are comprised of dealerships, boatyards, builders, marinas, sales brokers, boating service providers, marine technicians, and individuals. Together, we are committed to the development of the marine industry and the strength of each member business.

The VMTA does this by representing members before elected officials and state agencies. We keep members informed on legislative and regulatory issues through our quarterly newsletter, The Pier Press, and this website. The Association is also working to develop and promote educational opportunities for those seeking to work in the industry.
