About Us


The Marina Association of Texas (MAT) is a non-profit, volunteer-led organization composed of marinas on the inland and coastal waters of Texas, as well as associate members whose firms supply products and services to marinas.

The Marina Association of Texas was organized in January of 1973 with a mission to improve, protect, and advance the interest of the marina industry in Texas. It was initiated through the Sea Grant Program of Texas A&M University. MAT was the first association of its kind in the nation. Members come together to share their ideas, knowledge and experiences for the mutual benefit of all within the industry. MAT is directed by a Board of Directors elected by the members with officers also elected by the membership.
