Become a member of European Boating Industry!
Since 2009 EBI represents, promotes and defends the interests of the recreational boating industry at EU level. Our achievements include the successful revision of the Recreational Craft Directive, the first-ever EU studies on the industry's competitiveness and on nautical tourism, regular outreach to the EU institutions, as well as the participation in trade negotiations led by the European Commission.
European Boating Industry’s good results are obtained with the expertise, work and financial support of its members and its Secretariat.
1) FULL MEMBERSHIP is available to national industry associations from an EU/EEA Member State, Switzerland and associated countries.
Full members are part of the association’s network. Their expertise shapes current and future EU policies that have direct impact for companies in the recreational boating industry.
2) SUSTAINING MEMBERSHIP is open to individual companies and organisations that wish to support EBI. They need to be established in the EU, European Economic Area or in a country located in Europe with which the EU has close relations. Sustaining members can join provided that either the national industry association is not a full member, does not exist or has given consent.
