As boating season hits full throttle, DockMaster is ready to serve

While boating season feels a little different this year, the marine industry is still set for a very exciting season. After all, boating activity soared in 2020 with first time boat buyers and that trend is expected to continue into 2021. According to a poll by Sea Tow, 52% of boaters expect to increase their boating activity in 2021.

Boating promises to be a dominant summer activity again, due to some consumers being a little apprehensive of flocking to crowds and would rather continue sticking to socially distanced activities.

The big winners this summer will surely be marine businesses. The DockMaster team is here to serve you and June will be packed with opportunities to learn more about the capabilities of our software.

Courses on the agenda this month will include classes that will take users through some of the more advanced functions of our software.

Let’s take a look at what training classes are available to DockMaster’s clients throughout June.
