40 Under 40 Program

What is the 40 under 40 Program?

Now in its seventh year, Boating Industry’s 40 under 40 program highlights a unique group of outstanding young leaders from all segments of the recreational boating industry. 

Each year, Boating Industry receives hundreds of nominations from dealer principals, owners, CEOs and many other various individuals in management positions across the industry, all shining a spotlight on young leaders within their organizations. 

Once the nomination process closes, the editorial team at Boating Industry reads through every submission and eventually selects the final 40 of distinguished young leaders according to their accomplishments so far, as well as the promise seen in them to continue pushing the industry forward in the future.

Who are the 40 Under 40?

The 40 Under 40 honorees are made up of young leaders across the entire recreational boating industry. From marketing to engineering and sales to service (and everything in between), as long as the individual is under 40 years of age and shows dedication to the marine industry, we at Boating Industry want to share their accomplishments to the industry as a whole. 

Over the years of the program we’ve honored young leaders from OEMs, boat dealerships and other retailers, marinas, industry associations, suppliers and distributors, and everything in between. The 40 under 40 is an awards program that truly recognizes individuals from all segments of the recreational boating industry.
