Since 1961 the German Marine Federation (Bundesverband Wassersportwirtschaft) has been a contact point for the water sports industry and views itself as a lobbying body representing the interests of all companies commercially active in this sector. The Federation is in permanent contact with the most relevant committees and parliamentarians and is involved in consultations and decision-making processes regarding all water sports-related issues. Accordingly, member companies are informed early about political developments. Water sports are an international topic, which is why the Federation’s political involvement goes far beyond Germany. To assert the interests of German water sports cooperation in many international bodies is required as well as permanent presence on all levels of the European Union.

The Federation’s own magazine Wassersport-Wirtschaft regularly informs readers on trends in the industry.

Since 1971 the German Marine Federation (Bundesverband Wassersportwirtschaft) has been the conceptual sponsor of boot Düsseldorf.
