As EYC Foundation works to inspire and support today’s youth to discover and pursue a love of the water and careers in the marine and maritime fields, we also want to honor those that are out there doing the hard work now. We are grateful for the industry leaders that serve as inspiration to tomorrow’s new recruits. We honor them with Marine Wizard status.

A Marine Wizard is someone who demonstrates extraordinary skills in the marine trades, is know for providing excellent customer service and is considered to be “the best of the best” in the industry.

A new class of Wizards is recognized every other year. The selection process begins with nominations from the boating public and industry peers. Recipients are selected by a Foundation appointed committee and receive a one-year membership to Eastport Yacht Club, courtesy of EYC.

2024 is a Marine Wizard year! Let us know who you think lives up to the high standards of a Marine Wizard.
The deadline for this year’s nominations is May 24, 2024.

Help honor the industry’s “Best of the Best”
