MarineMax Earns Boating Safety Education Award

MarineMax received the Top Marine Retailer Award from the North American Sober Skipper Advisory Council for marketing campaigns focused on boating safety.

The Sea Tow Foundation announced winners of its inaugural National Boating Industry Safety Awards at the Elevate Summit in Orlando. The event was held December 2019. The awards were established to recognize the best boating safety work in the for-profit sector of the recreational marine marketplace occurring within the United States. 

“From the development of hands-on boating safety classes to the production of safety-focused videos, MarineMax is providing outstanding educational opportunities for new boaters as well as those in need of a refresher," Gail R. Kulp, Sea Tow Foundation Executive Director, commented. "Also, MarineMax social media posts consistently promoted additional awareness about boating safety through ongoing messages via multiple platforms.”

The awards were sponsored and judged by the newly established North American Sober Skipper Advisory Council. They were funded through a grant from the Sport Fish Restoration & Boating Trust Fund, administered by the U.S. Coast Guard. Keith Lake, a MarineMax Clearwater Delivery Captain and member of the North American Sober Skipper Advisory Council, accepted the award. Lake was exempt from voting in the “Marine Retailer” division of award selection.

“I’m honored to be a member of the National Sober Skipper Advisory Council and part of the voting process for these awards," Lake said. "The submissions received were all outstanding, especially for the first year. I’ve been promoting boating safety for MarineMax for years and look forward to sharing what we’ve learned with our fellow boaters for years to come.”
