THE RECREATIONAL BOATING INDUSTRY ECO-SYSTEM

Freya Olsen Photo Nmma

The YBAA annual meetings in both Annapolis, Maryland and Providence, Rhode Island in July proved to be an educational experience in understanding the relationship that the brokerage community has with the marine industry as a whole.
