Community celebrates boating at 3rd annual Marine Industry Day

More than 1,500 people joined the marine industry for the 3rd annual Marine Industry Day in Ft. Lauderdale to celebrate the impact of boating in South Florida. More than 60 business exhibited at the afternoon event on June 18 which included live music, food trucks and water taxi tours. Children explored boat and propeller building, experimented with buoyancy, touched live sea creatures and met professionals in the industry.

Marine Industry Day is produced by the Marine Industries Association of South Florida (MIASF) and the Florida Yacht Brokers Association, with support from the U.S. Superyacht Association, Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale and Young Professionals in Yachting.

“This event creates a great awareness of the marine industry that partners with the entire community,” Phil Purcell, executive director of MIASF, said.
