We make boating affordable!
Welcome to the National Marine Lenders Association
The National Marine Lenders Association (NMLA) was formed in 1979 by founding directors Bill Otto, Jackie Forese, and the late Don Mattocks. It was created, and continues today, to educate current and prospective lenders in marine financing procedures, promote the extension of credit to consumer and trade borrowers, maintain alliances with industry partners, measure and report on the vitality of the marine lending market, and actively maintain networking and communication benefits for its members.
MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT - Michael Bryant
The 2015 American Boating Congress (ABC) is scheduled for May 11-13 in Washington, DC and registration is now open. ABC is a comprehensive legislative conference that brings together recreational boating industry leaders, stakeholders and policymakers to discuss issues facing our industry. All industry segments are invited to gather and ensure that government decisions have a positive impact on marine businesses. NMLA is proud to be a co-host of this important industry event, and will have representation on site.
Don Parkhurst, NMLA Legislative Committee Chairman, and other NMLA board members will schedule meetings with legislators about key federal legislation concerning the marine industry to be certain your interests and concerns are addressed. If you are interested in attending please contact Don at firstname.lastname@example.org. Early bird discounts and group rates are available. Hotel information is available now. Look for updates and details on registration and events in the near future.
The National Marine Lenders Association is made up of banks, loan origination companies (service companies), finance companies, credit unions and other industry professionals, all ready to assist with financing your boat.

The Board of Directors would like to extend a very special “thank you” to the sponsors of our 2014 NMLA Annual Lenders Conference. Without their contributions, we could not bring our members and other industry attendees the venues, speakers, and conference events we all enjoy.
All of our sponsor companies - banks, financial services providers, dealers, title and USCG documentation companies, marine surveyors, marine insurance companies, recovery/liquidators, maritime attorneys, and technology service providers, are involved in the marine industry. So, whether you are a current NMLA member, an industry affiliate, a boat dealer/broker, or a boat buyer, NMLA sponsors are the businesses you should be working with.
It is our pleasure to provide you with the contract information of our sponsor companies as well as a brief description of the services each one offers.
