The Massachusetts Marine Trades Association (MMTA) proudly announces the recent relaunch of its website, www.boatma.com, the most reliable source for Massachusetts tide charts and all things boating. BOATMA.COM is not only more user friendly and aesthetically pleasing, it remains packed with key information for boaters and non-boaters alike, including educational opportunities, job listings, a resume posting portal, where to buy, store, service or register a boat, and of course the highly trafficked Massachusetts tide charts.
Long-standing MMTA member, By-The-Sea.com, is MMTA’s webmaster credited with this relaunch as well as helping to make the Massachusetts tide charts more accessible to all boaters and the general public. By-The-Sea.com provides comprehensive Internet services to marine businesses, including creating and hosting web pages for boating magazines, boat builders, new boat dealers, marine surveyors, trade associations and more.
“MMTA is delighted with the new look and greater accessibility of www.boatma.com. Our Association is committed to expanding public access to boating. With the Internet being the first source for information today, MMTA recognizes the need to stay current to insure the boating community is well-informed,” stated Greg Glavin, Internet Committee Chairman and President of Onset Bay Marina.
BOATMA.COM is particularly helpful to MMTA members, who enjoy terrific visibility on the website with business listings in two separate areas, reduced rate banner ad purchases, members’ only job postings for public viewing, and access to current legislative happenings pertaining to boating. With nearly 1 million hits on www.boatma.com in 2012, an MMTA annual membership fee of $250 pays for itself.
The Massachusetts Marine Trades Association is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1964 to advance recreational boating interests. Entering its 50th year in 2014, the non-profit MMTA continues to be managed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors from marine businesses statewide.
