About Our Program

The Stay Local Boat MA transient referral program is operated by Massachusetts Marine Trades Association  [boatma.com]. The program was established to encourage seasonal boaters to travel to various destination marinas along the beautiful coastline of Massachusetts and in return receive a discount for doing so. If you are a seasonal guest at one of the participating marinas you are eligible for a dockage/moorings discount at any of the other participating marinas. The program is also designed to encourage group travel by offering a larger discount based on the total amount of boats traveling.


The Massachusetts Marine Trades Association seeks to advance the interests of the marine trades and the boating public through the promotion of recreational boating, participation in legislation and expansion of professional improvement programs. Founded in 1964 by small marine business owners, the MMTA remains a non-profit association led by an all-volunteer Board of Directors. Please visit us at boatma.com for information on all things boating, including our members and the Massachusetts tide charts.
