This is why we have embraced an ambitious and exciting vision – a thriving industry delivering amazing on water experiences for everyone. It summarises our realistic ambition for British Marine’s members out to 2025 and beyond.

To drive that vision into reality, British Marine has created its first National Agenda. It is an achievable and measurable plan that has been carefully crafted by our executive team in close collaboration
with elected member representatives.

We promise that:

  • The National Agenda is an assertive plan that is being implemented now and against which we will regularly measure, report and update.
  • British Marine’s deep skills and resources will be directed towards areas of most impact for members.
  • Members will be placed front and centre of all British Marine activities with service that is personalised to needs, easily accessible and always available.
  • Quality will pervade everything we do, to provide the best membership experiences and influence the raising of standards across the whole industry.

Summarising, our Mission is to deliver outstanding services, representation and products to promote the sustainable success of our members.

This National Agenda is a clear declaration of British Marine’s determination to play a significant and measurable role in supporting you, our members. I commend it to you as our pole star for a bright
future and look forward to your input and engagement in coming months.
