Women Making Waves is Boating Industry’s effort to recognize the multitude of women in the industry who have made and continue to make great contributions to its success, propel its growth and lead their organizations and peers into the future.
With over 100 nominations for this year’s Women Making Waves, choosing the highlighted women was no easy task. There is such a large and continuously growing number of women doing incredible work in our industry that the pages don’t provide enough space to honor each and every one. The group of women in the proceeding pages have given everything they have and more to the marine industry and have accomplished so much.
Here they are, the 25 Women Making Waves as nominated by the industry and selected by Boating Industry.
