European future towards more sustainability boating. At the General Assembly of European Boating Industry (EBI) in last January, several major decisions for the future of association were taken. For example, European Boating Industry – EBI wants advancing and representing a sustainable boating and nautical tourism industry #MadeInEurope”.

So, it launches a strategy for the period 2022-2025 and a new branding. Approved by the General Assembly, it is built on a strong set of core actions and new initiatives that EBI will lead.
EBI will focus its actions on the core area of active interest representation at European level while introducing several complementary initiatives that will offer added value to EBI’s members and the industry.

The association will stand strong for all boating companies in Europe, giving them a powerful voice towards the EU Institutions and stakeholders. Approved as new members of the association by the General Assembly were the Irish Boat Rental Association as full member and the Electric Boat Association of Greece as sustaining member.

This rebranding effort marks EBI commitment to further improving its value in support of the industry, starting with European future towards more sustainable boating

New Associations

Irish Boat Rental Association (IBRA) and Electric Boat Association of Greece as new members of the EBI’s growing network across Europe. The enlargement of its membership represents a strengthening of our role at European level.

The Electric Boat Association of Greece (EBA Greece) was founded in 2016 to promote the development of electric boating and to serve the needs of all who have an interest in electric boating, manufacturers, boat owners or business members.

The voice of the President Jean-Pierre Goudant
«We are proud of the launch of our strategy, and we invite all associations and partners to work with us to implement it over the next three years. We will be focusing on policy areas that we have identified as crucial for the future of our industry together with our members. At the core of our new strategy is the element of competitiveness and keeping Europe at the forefront of manufacturing, services, and nautical tourism. We have therefore chosen to prominently include the Made in Europe element. This is also crucial for the exciting new developments around sustainability and digitalisation that will transform our sector in the next years and decades».
