About The U.S. Superyacht Association: The U.S. Superyacht Association (USSA) is a non-profit trade association whose mission is, “To promote and support the U.S. superyacht industry and its members worldwide through advocacy, marketing, education, and events.” The USSA was formed in 2006 in direct response to the lack of a unified voice in the United States for the unique needs of the large-yacht segment of the marine industry. Since that time, the USSA has grown to nearly 400 members representing the superyacht industry in more than 26 states and 22 foreign countries. The top priority of the association remains to advocate on behalf of this $6-billion segment of the recreational boating industry, which represents thousands of jobs and a tremendous impact on the U.S. economy.
