2015 MRA Innovation Award

Submissions for the 2015 MRA Innovation Award are now being accepted by the MRA. This award honors development and technical advances in the recreational marina and boatyard industry, recognizing companies, organizations and individuals who have advanced technology in a way that materially affects the industry. There can be up to four recipients of the award based on nominations. The deadline for submissions is October 1, 2015.

The MRA Innovation Award is a mahogany-clad custom blown glass vessel made in France. The chrome hardware and anchor cap are Belgian, and the nautically-inspired result is a handsome addition to any display case, bar or yacht. The “Yacht Club Vodka” design is based on the legendary boats of the Riviera and the look of the famous 1960’s Riva “Aquarama.”

The winner(s) will be announced during the MRA’s 44th Annual Educational Conference and Trade Show October 26-28, 2015.
